Über dieses Spiel

Wer braucht schon eine Hintergrundgeschichte? Wer braucht schon Rohstoff-Management? Diplomatie ist so von gestern. Gratuitous Space Battles schneidet alte Sci-Fi Strategie-Zöpfe ab und bietet komplett willkürliche Schlachten zwischen riesigen, verfeindeten Raumschiffflotten.
Gratuitous Space Battles kombiniert die visuellen Reize eines RTS mit den süchtig machenden Spielmechaniken von Tower-Defense Spielen. In GSB steuert der Spieler nicht individuelle Schiffe in der Schlacht. Die Schiffe folgen einer vordefinierten Befehlskette und folgen Formationen, die Sie ihnen vor der Schlacht befehlen.
GSB lässt Sie als übermächtiger Weltraum-Admiral das Design Ihrer individuellen Schiffe und die Gesamtkomposition Ihrer Flotte, sowie die generelle Befehlsabfolge für die Schlacht beeinflussen. Dies ist keine Echtzeit-Arcade-Schlacht, sondern ein Spiel voller vorsichtiger Planung und umsichtiger Strategie. Riesige Weltraumschlachten können durch clevere Aufstellung und die richtige Balance von Angriff und Verteidigung gewonnen werden.
GSB bietet zudem einen innovatives Mehrspielersystem. Sie können Ihre ultimative Flotte hochladen und als Feind anderen Spielern entgegentreten und verfolgen, wie viele andere Spieler an Ihrer Aufstellung gescheitert sind. So werden Sie niemals lange nach einem ebenbürtigen Gegner suchen müssen!
  • 4 verschiedene, freischaltbare Spielerrassen
  • Über 40 verschiedene Schiffshüllen
  • Über 120 Schiffsmodule
  • Wahlweise Spiel gegen die KI , endloser Survival-Modus oder Spiel gegen Flotten anderer Spieler mit dem Online-Herausforderungssytem
  • Spielen Sie mit unterschiedlichen Regeln, da jede Schlacht unterschiedlichste räumliche Anomalien beherbergen kann.

Never thought that creating ships to blow alien ships up for no apparent reason or logic whatsoever could be so fun! :D

What you basically do is to design ships which, when deployed in battle, will help defeat the enemy fleet. Every victory you win will give you a credit like reward called Honour. You use this 'Honour' to buy new shiny gadgets or weapons that blaze nice looking beams of death onto your enemy.

There is no actual story line. The game is basically composed of about 14 setups (counting the tutorial battle aswell as an additional 9 setups when including all the DLC's, which brings the number up to 23) which all offer a different challenge along with a certain species to go against. This means that just because your ship designs and the fleet you deployed were successful against a certain race in such a scenario, doesn't mean that you will be as successful in another scenario with a different species. Not to mention certain scenarios having something called 'Spartial Anomalies' which can affect how well/poor your ships perform in terms of their weapons and defences.

There is also a multiplayer mode which tbh isnt what you actually think, it isnt a match-up with another player, see who wins and say "HAHA YOU SUCK!" kind of game. No, how it works, is that you mainly pick your map and make your own scenario, deploy your ships that you designed and upload them. The scenario is then uploaded to a vast list of scenarios for the community to try out. Some may even consider retaliating your challenge. However i would just recommend trying out created scenarios to try out since there is a vast list of uploads that there is only a small chance of someone actually trying it out your own.

With every game however, it has its drawbacks...

Not counting the DLC, you may find it fustrating when you find yourself losing and on the recieving end of super intense beams of destruction blowing your stuff to smithereens, again and again. After the battle you are shown stats which are near impossible to understand, so you may end up in a repeating scenario of losing, losing, losing, then after more losing looking at the stats in attempt to study what is wrong, make new ship designs, still lose, go back to the drawing board, still lose and then wondering why the hell you cannot win when you study the stats for almost an hour. Also without the DLC you may end up finding yourself bored with just 4 races at your disposal, one of which you cannot fight on the single player mission scenarios.

As a result you may find yourself thinking that you wasted your money on a game you cannot understand and find out how little content you had. I would advice buying this game when there is some sort of sale or deal going on with this game. Buy with the DLC expansions too to give the game a little more spice to your experience with the game. That and a lot of patience with the losing and looking up for tips on certain situations and you may end up actually coming back to this every now and then.

Despite these flaws, GSB is quite a fun little game to kill an hour or so...just don't expect to fall in love with all the info you are bombarded with at the end of the battle. Again i would advise getting the DLC's as they include an extra 6 races to try and mess around with and a Galactic Campaign, though i would avoid not getting to engrossed in that too much due to the Galactic Campaign having some flaws, but the rest should keep you occupied with this game for even longer.

It may have moments where you say ♥♥♥♥ THIS GAME, ♥♥♥♥ ITS MECHANICS, I WANT MY MONEY BACK!, but stick to it and hopefully in the end you will be glad you bought this game along with the DLC's.

Even though the game may end up annoying you with stats and at times fleets that make you think this is all impossible to understand, it can be really fun to play once you get used to it, maybe you could one day decide to play out of rage and take out your anger on a bunch of aliens who have no reason to be blown up whatsoever, except for your entertainment of zero-g fireworks and act as some sort of stress relief!

5/10: Hands-off strategy game that takes patience to learn

+ Great visuals
+ Extremely broad variety of modules and possible strategies
+ Satisfying once you get the hang of it

- After you design your ships and place them on the battlefield, all you do is watch the battle play out (you can't control anything)
- If you are looking for a quick "pick-up-and-play" game, this is not it. It took me about 2 hours to understand how things worked
- Unlocking everything takes very little effort
- Pace of the game is quite slow, even when sped up to the maximum of x4 speed

Fun game, just be aware that not all the DLC are available for all platforms. I rebought this on Steam to play on my mac and I can only play half the content! Not exactly sure why this is, but I can't see the developers making all the DLC available when they are very much invested in the next installment.

Good, but with kicker as mentioned.

Don't know how I feel about this game. I enjoy the building aspect but it seems like most of the modules are underperforming or completely niche when compared to the best of the best modules. The ship designs are all pretty much the same regardless of what race you are playing and the functionality of the modules acts identical with a tiny tweak here and there, but nothing game changing. The battles themselves can be fun to watch, but thats exactly it... you're just sitting there, watching and waiting for the fight to end. This can be pretty painful in matches where fights are long and drawn out. Overall, I am enjoying the game, but I honestly don't think I could reccomend it. The game runs in a 32 bit client and I am having all kinds of crashing errors and bugs when running the system on my 64bit operating system. With that kind of dating in the desing, anyone who is interested might just be better off waiting for the sequel (which is in development).

Its a very fun game I enjoy testing out some of my concept ideas. Although I would really like to see some weapon improvements in the game beyond what they already have.
