Shattered Galaxy plays out within a massive universe with endless threats and opportunities. You will gain experience, wealth, land, rank, new weapons, upgrades and political power as you fight for your nation’s glory. The incredibly open game environment allows for multiple options and approaches during battles. From scouting and squad management to strategic points utilization and real-time reinforcements usage; players will need to adopt various parallel techniques and develop diversified abilities. Special care must be taken on the resource management perspective. As your energy drain and relevant needs will be significant during battles in order to be able to use your units, sufficient energy reserves and commanding certain recharging locations will play a crucial part on the battle’s outcome.
Based on the battlefield as well as your opponent you will need to carefully customize your units from inside out, choosing armor, weapons, equipment, engine, sensors and various other elements so that you can maximize their effectiveness. Units no longer needed, can be sold or replaced and even if there is an initial cap limitation to owning up to 48 units, more can be used as you gain experience and increase your hero’s rank. By leveling up you will also be provided with more weapons, upgrades and advanced equipment.

Even though it does not shine through its presentation; 2D graphics and sound look and feel primitive; it surely does a nice job on the strategy side, showcasing some great features.
