Interplanetary is a turn-based strategic artillery game on a cosmic scale. Develop your home planet and use massive barrages to wage war on a galactic battlefield. It's an arms race with each planet developing increasingly powerful weapons. Gigantic railgun batteries are the backbone of any interplanetary arsenal, but the cunning use of missiles and precision lasers may just hold the key to victory. Strategic build patterns, upgrades and defense structures might keep your vital installations standing long enough to give you an edge, but it's only a matter of time until all but one will fall. Sometimes, your greatest foe is the planetary system itself! Don't let the unpredictable gravitational changes get the better of you—observe your surroundings, use them to your advantage, and blast your enemies back to the Stone Age! KEY FEATURES ● Challenge your friends in hotseat or online matches, or fight skirmishes against the AI. ● Build and manage your planet's infrastructure. ● Gather resources and decide the most efficient use for them. ● Research and develop increasingly futuristic technologies. ● Spy on your enemies to reveal the weak points of their infrastructure. ● Use your artillery constructions to aim across the planetary system, avoiding other celestial bodies and their gravity. ● Fire your railguns, missiles and beam weapons to annihilate the enemy and claim the planetary system for your civilization! Interplanetary: Enhanced Edition, is a revised version of the original Interplanetary. The no longer supported original is included in the Enhanced Edition for free, for the purposes of historical preservation and (hopefully) flattering comparison.The Enhanced Edition features include: Online AI Bots, Elliptic Orbits, Quick Targeting Mode, New Buildings, rebalancing and general fixes and improvements across the board.

Despite trying to harken back to a simpler and fun time in gaming, Interplanetary: Enhanced Edition adds unnecessary complication to a game that is broken to begin with. The style is unique and enjoyable, but the root of the game - firing shots to kill the others - is so broken and frustrating it is recommended to stay away. The simulation part is simply too complex, too prone to random luck, killing everything anyway, and shot placement is so horrendously bad the only thing keeping a player going is perhaps wanting to beat it once to never touch it again.

Overall, Interplanetary is an exceptional game. Great gameplay, lovely looking visuals, even better music and challenging AI. Interplanetary's USP of combining physics, gravity and orbits into artillery fire pays off extremely well, providing an experience that is compelling and rewarding.
