Good game, poor execution
This game could have been excellent, but it falls short.
I don't understand how this falls into a strategy game. The only control you have is when to build units. When there's only one unit available, what else is there to do but build it as fast as possible? Later on, there's a choice of what units to build, but even then, it basically plays itself.
You need to add more strategy to it. For instance, you could at least give us the capabilities the AI clearly has, like setting fighters to guard a certain region, or stay near another ship. We can't even have our ships fire at a particular target.
It needs the ability to give basic commands, like wait/attack/retreat. Specifying a preferred target would also be very nice.
Without this, I don't know how survival mode is even possible.
This game is so close to being a 10 : /
