A downloadable game

Made in 72 hours for Ludum Dare #19 "Discovery"


You are the red player, enemy is blue. Both of you control a portion of the galaxy, but only one army must remain ! Expand to unexplored, neutral and sometimes dangerous and unknown territories, exploit enemy weaknesses and beware of your own worlds !

This sort of RTS where 2 army clash in a fight to death. You can select the planets that you control to send half of the planet army to an other planet, to expand or to make a deadly raid on the enemy at the moment he expand.

Expanding cost units (Space Ships). The amount it cost is displayed on the center of the gray planets. When it reaches 0 it create a Mother Ship that will produces more units to your amry !

Space ships stats (life, shield, weapon power) depends of the planet. This information is displayed on the top-left corner of the screen when you select a planet. (In Discovery mode, you cannot see it until you've visit the planet - see explanations below)
