The game is a bit fun and addicting. Build your vessel, place your guns, and watch it go battle with other vessels. It's a game of trial and error. You will often have to modify, or even scrap and start anew, your vessel until you find just the right structure and combination of guns to defeat your opponent. This is best done by targeting your enemy's weak points and covering your own. The physics in the game brings some additional challenge: trying to keep your vessel balancd on the terrain and during destruction in battle, as well as crippling your opponent at certain weak points.
I would give this game an 8-9 if it were an iOS game... but this is a PC port. The idea of building the vessel is fun, but it is really time consuming when there are no hot keys. The game is played with only the left mouse click and I think tab shifts view. click(menu), click(add), click(move), click(rotate), click(delete). And sometimes the pop up menu hovers over the other piece which is kind of annoying. Keep in mind, I haven't been to the late stages so I haven't been able to build any thing complex yet. I hope they will address this in future updates otherwise, I will have to say it's not worth the 9.99USD that I paid. I'm still really addicted to it, but dam there's so much clicking, it's painful.… Expand
