You can play different roles for your team: defend your station, go mining, escort large but slow mining ships, attack other team's missions or assault their stations.
Deathmatch: pick one of two ships for the round, kill your targets, be the first to earn 12 points to win the round ; you will be ranked in the Pro Deathmatch Championship
An awesome new mode will be unveiled on release day
The Starblast ship tree features 7 tiers and 31 unique spaceships with different laser patterns and abilities.
You can acquire and use different types of secondary weapons and powers allowing to build different offensive and defensive strategies.
You have access to a range of custom materials for your spaceship (Titanium, Carbon, Alloy, Gold), different laser styles (Doubled, Lightning, Digital), custom ingame badge (Pirate, Invader, Reddit, Youtuber, Paw, Star). More materials, lasers, badges will come.
CUSTOM GAMES (SANDBOX MODE)
STARBLAST allows you to create custom games with specific options: change the size of the map, the asteroids patterns, crystal value, asteroid strength, ships speed, starting ship, number of teams, size of the space stations etc. More customization options to come!
You can share your custom game and thus use this system to create private parties or public events.
SOME MORE DETAILS
We use procedural generation to create different star systems and asteroids fields. You will almost never play twice in the same arena, with the same asteroids configuration.
See you soon ingame, Commander!
Starblast just needs to fix the ‘catch up issue’ and find a way to increase the population of players (or find like-minded people to play it together). Doesn’t hurt to try it anyway, as it is for free on a browser, if you find it awesome, you can support the developers as well by buying the ECP version.
