== BETA ==

Play through the tutorial, it's quick and fairly painless.

But basically, you are the Blue guy, take over the galaxy.

Use the mouse to select your blue stars, then left click to send ships to enemy stars.

You can specialise the stars using the star type buttons on the top right.

== Controls ==
* To Select a Star - Left Click
* To Deselect all stars press SPACE -OR- click into empty space
* To Select Multiple Stars
- Drag a select boax around the stars you want
-OR- SHIFT+Mouse Click to add stars to your selection
-OR- A To Select ALL
-OR- CTRL+N To Select all Naval Stars
-OR- CTRL+E To Select all Economic Stars
-OR- CTRL+D To Select all Defence Stars
-OR- CTRL+S To Select all Standard Stars
-OR- CTRL+M To Select all MineLayer Stars

== Notes ==
1. Surround your enemy - the more sides you attack an enemy star from, the bigger bonus you get.
2. Don't fly over enemy defence stars, your fleets will be massacred.
3. Use Defence stars to create borders with your enemy.
4. Don't hit an enemy defence star head on, you'll be slaughtered.
5. Don't adjust your speakers, there's no sound yet, this is just a beta!

Looking foward to the next version

Kept me pretty engrossed for a few hours. I liked the star customization and the strategy involved. In the next version I would love to see a campaign. Also more customizations would be cool. Maybe you could allow the player to blow up one of his stars for some area damage or you could have hero ships that are more rpgish. I liked the efficiency and economy idea but it needs to be taken further. At certain economy scores you could allow the player a new type of customization. That would work for a hero ship as well as the economy goes up the hero ship could grow more powerful maybe do a certain percent more damage per point of economy and be upgradable at certain lvs. Maybe if you have a certain percentage of one type of star you could upgrade that type of star to greater efficiency. Or the percentage of each type of star you have would make the hero ship specialize in say defence or offence or different types of damage. One thing about the ai the enemy shouldnt be sending its own ships through its own mine fields and on a related note the mine fields were too powerfull. I would like it the game could be played with more than one stategy. Just some ideas.... Thanks for the game. Umm.. not done yet... Maybe you could have boss stars on a campaign and instead of a hero ship you could have a hero star or both. Anyway thats it. Liked the game. 9/10

Not bad- but could use improvement

The system used in the game is good, but some things are very apparent:
1: The system for selecting planets is clumsy.
2: The game seems prone to lag
3: Mine planets seem worthless

I agree. The controls is the trickiest thing on your list, I'm still thinking about that one. The lag is also the trickiest thing on your list, only way I can get a speed up now is to make some compromises. The third thing on the list is the easiest, I'm going to replace minefields....

Thanks for the clear comments.

Nice but very hard

I give it a 9/10 on;ly because it is quite hard. This game could use a "save" system and the computer;s seem rigged in a way, they get killed but ALWAYs come back and kill me :D Also the Naval star, doesnt work exactly, many of my ships randomly disappear. Also, I dont seem to understand the economy to ship system. I get that the amount of economy=amount of ships, but oddly my economy sometimes randomly dies :D And Finally,(phew :) ] It gets VERY annoying when it selects all your planets and when u just want to make 1 planet into a nval/eco/etc.. it makes THEM ALL into it :D Thats the owrst :) But I DEFINATELY cant wait for this game to be finished. Im working on a game of my own and it's quit like this ^^ Its StarCraft like :)

Pretty Good!

The main things I would like to see in the next installment is the ability to choose your own color, A level builder, a campaign and customizable ships. But since this is only the Beta, 10/10!
