Gameplay[edit | edit source]

It is basically a space version of Combat with the gameplay of Asteroids. You and your opponent control a spaceship in which your goal is to score more hit points on your opponent's ship without letting him do the same to yours within a time limit. Options for this game include wraparound and enclosed playfields, plus gravitational effects from the Sun in the middle of the screen (black hole, negative gravity, and no gravity).
