I think this is supposed to be a bit like the old boardgame, Battleship, but in all the time I played it I couldn’t get it to find another spaceship or whatever I was supposed to be searching for.
I can only apologise to all those lost in space due to my crapness. Sorry. Sorry, sorry, sorry. Maybe you can get up to some hijinks, like in Red Dwarf or the Lost in Space TV show or something? Or maybe you can just float along in space, never being rescued by anyone. Despairing until you die of starvation or suffocation or just plain boredom.
