Welcome to an unique RTS (Real Time Strategy) based in the space. The objective is simple, dominate the universe by conquering as many planets as you can.
You can play from almost any device with a browser (Windows, Android, Mac, iPhone, Linux) without the need to install or register.
If you are lost or you don't see any planets:
Grey planets are not owned by any player. Colored planets are owned by a player.
The first thing you need to do is to spawn on a grey planet. To do that you just click on the planet. After a bit the planet will change color and that's your player color. Congrats!
To expand your colony you need to attack your nearby planets. To see if you can attack a planet, click on it and it will show the available range.
Let's do the first attack. Drag from your planet to the destination planet.
When you send a ship you are sending units from your planet.
To see how many units you have in your planet look at the image below:
Here you can see there is a lighter green and a darker green. The lighter green shows how many units you have in your planet. In this case looks like we have just a bit more than half.
Every planet generates new units over time, so if your planet has no units wait a bit and you will have more units soon.
What you can do with your resources:
To see how many resources check the top right of your screen:
Resources are given away over time based on the number of resource planets you have.
See a resource planet below, they have some craters.
The other normal planets don't produce any resources.
Now that you are attacking let's make it automatic. This game revolves around creating a highly efficient network of interconected planets that provide units to each other. You could do it manually, but is easier to just create a ship stream.
A ship stream will send ships automatically over time to a destination planet.
Here you can see a ship stream.
How to create a ship stream:
Now you will see a board with a moving arrow and ships will start to be sent automatically.
To delete a stream just click on it.
If no planet is created you will see an error explaining why you can't.
Upgrades allow your planet to become stronger. Note that if somebody takes over your planet will keep your upgrades.
How to upgrade:
If you want to generate units faster, which I recommend, select the planet and click on "Upgrades". Now click on the "Upgrade" button next to the "Build units per cycle". You will notice that your current number of units per cycle increased. Note that this action will cost you some resources.
Increases the range of your planet and you can attack further away planets.
Increases the defenses of your planet and your units will be stronger to combat enemy attacks.
Increases the attack of your planet and your units will be stronger when you attack another planet.
Every planet has a maximum number of units, if you want more you can upgrade this. Can be useful to prepare a strong attack.
Increases the size of your planet so you can be more scary to other planets.
Decreases the radius of your planet so you can deceive other players. You can have a small planet but can have a big capacity and send a strong attack that the enemy will not expect.
Click here to start a new game
Here are some good starting points in the map:
When you first start a new game you will own no planets. Just zoom in and select a planet.
Note that you should make sure you have plenty of grey planets (empty planets) around so you can easily conquer them. Also make sure you have Resource Planets nearby (planets with craters) around you to earn more resources.
If there are colored planets they are owned by other planets and might attack you. You don't want to start near other planets.
