It’s an apt title. It’s the game you’ve played before, in space. There are asteroids to mine, pirate ships to fight, and lasers and missiles to fend them off with.
It’s like a condensed version of Sins of a Solar Empire, if Sins were strictly a tower defense game. (Although, with the new expansion, “Entrenchment” it could be argued that it is a glorified version of tower defense. But that’s another post.)
It’s fun, and a good way to spend some time at work, when one finds themself the only member of their department that made it in due to the weather.
