Nice work! I confess I got stuck at the planet question though... thought I was choosing a funny name for my player lol.

mmm... it seems the game won't let me proceed past the planet question either. i put in a name, but pressing ENTER doesn't do anything...

Yeah, the planet name thing was confusing. It took me a second to realize it was some sort of CAPTCHA thing.

Ah! I finally got through! just needed to give the suggested answers about the planets and the password. I'm so stupid :p

I didn't like this game very much. It's actually my worst nightmare for RTS games! It takes the best things about turn based strategy and RTS, throws them out and them combines the worst things about the two genres. I'll explain:

1) In RTS's, you're usually allowed to command multiple units at a time. This is done to help you manage the fact that the game is running in real time. In this game, you have to click every unit individually and give them commands one by one. Really difficult in a real time setting!

2) This is related to #1. Because it's real time, you don't get the space to sit down and contemplate your next move. You're forced to hurry, hurry, hurry. So that advantage of turn based games is taken away - but the game assumes your fingers are fast enough to manage commanding each individual unit one by one.

I'm not anyone's dad, older brother or boss in this room/thread, but I would strongly discourage anyone from going down this route.

Thanks for that feedback, AVataRR. Sorry you didn't like the game but that kind of feedback is just what I need to make better games in the future.

It's a cool idea, and was definitely worth trying out.

I love the hex titles. So I played this teice the first time there was enemy etc... second time I'm just king of the mountain! all hail king bob! so was there ai? or was that a opponent that killed me the first time? yeah it sometimes was a click fest to make sure you got to move all your guys before the turn was up But I liked the idea over all.
