Starscape, mixes arcade game play with an involving plot.
Moonpod s Starscape mixes old school arcade game play values with characterisation and involving plot to deepen the whole experience.

By mining the asteroids within the grid dimension, valuable resources can be harvested to fuel the Aegis s molecular furnace to build devastating weaponry.
