Niche indie game - cheap as chips

It is far more complex than it looks and is actively supported by the developer.

I am TheFox, send me a fleet and I'll see if I can defeat you.

Which one did you get? Core game or collector's edition?

What is the multiplayer like?

I got the collectors. MPlayer is really just publicly submitted missions so there are literally an endless amount of them. You can browse for these missions in game and they have community granted ratings and win/loss ratio's so you can try to find one that has a nice balance of difficulty and entertainment.

You're still playing by yourself though - there is no one on the other end of the interweb waiting for you to finish your turn. You d/l the mission, play against it as often as you like then d/l another. Repeat.

You can do the same with just a mate (private challenge) if that's your preference as well - you can design a fleet and challenge your mate to beat it.

I did get this game. I like it.

I screwed up, I thought I had gotten the expansions, but I didn't so if I had to do it again I would get the CE version. Sorry if that screwed someone else up.

I like the challenge system in the way I can do it whenever I like and we don't have to be online at the same time. You can challenge and retailiate for weeks and weeks without getting in the poo with the Mrs.
