Graphics & Sound
Overall the graphics in this game are great. All of the small details like distant stars and glowing planets add nice touches to the intergalactic theme. A background drop of deep space transport players into the center of the galaxy. Battleships, weapons, mining, busy manufacturin facilities, and warehouses complete your colonies bringing a more authentic look. For the Rank List section players are allowed to add their own personal avatar. This image will help identify you in the top ranking players list. Your avatar appears next to your user name and earned points. Although, the sound is somewhat limited in this strategy game players will not miss it. The quiet makes it easier to multi-task. This comes in handy during the beginning stages of construction when concentration is required.
