Space opera RPG/strategy
The game is a combination of space based 2D fights with a story and background which adds a flavor of RPG to the whole affair. Thus, the game feels like some sort of space opera, where you're also tasked with battles. This rather strategic portion of the game is very interesting in that, while very simple, it still manages to convey a sense of conflict, where you want to use the right tactics at the right time, fire your weapons when the shields of your enemies are down and try to avoid damage as much as possible. The story however will make most of the Star Trek generation players smile. There's something involuntarily funny about the premise and the way it is presented, graphics and story per se, so, you won't really be able to settle in, be drawn in. However, it is similar in fashion to a lesser Star Trek, The Original Series, so if you're not looking for quality you might enjoy it. Other than that, the crude graphics might be another major point of contention with many players, but with old school DOS gamers that will be just a small issue.
