The game also features many innovative mechanics that you've never seen before. For example, the Cronus Battleship sports a Flux Shield generator that allows you to draw a defensive force shield around your ships in any shape you want. Another example are the Deflector modules that are used extensively through the game. These modules make a single section of a ship totally invulnerable to fire. This means that you will have to manoeuvre your ships to attack sections of the enemy ships not protected by Deflectors while keeping your own protected sections facing the enemy.

What works

The main game.

What does not

The options menu will try to restart its self when you change some of the options such as fullscreen. When the game returns it will crash, and dump errors in a GUI form.

The game info main menu item will sometimes show up and other times make you think the game froze. Esc key gets you back to the main menu.

The map editor has an offset on it. You can stretch the window to get the full view, but you will then notice you have an offset on your mouse.

Additional Comments

I just reinstalled the game after a year and was amazed that I can finally play it. I'm very grateful to the Wine Developers and Sean "th15" Chan(Game Creator) for a wonderful job. I would have given a Gold rating if changing items in the options menu didn't cause a crash.
