WHAT IS ASTRONEST?

 AstroNest is a war-simulation game based in outer space involving these gameplay elements:

Fleet management: research technology, upgrade your gear, equip the best weapons, choosing battle formations, and so forth.

Hero Skills: Each fleet requires a hero to lead it. Heroes have attributes that boost the attack, durability and size of the fleet, as well as abilities and skills that increase your chance of survival in battle.

Resource Management: You must develop a planetary system to produce resources. Use these resources to develop technologies, create, and repair fleets.

Battle Simulation: In AstroNest, you do not control specific actions in battle. Instead, you set up your fleet so they perform effectively against other fleets.

Player vs Player Combat: As an AstroNest commander, you will join one of two factions -- Terra or Neos. These two factions engage in galactic combat over precious resources.

 

YOUR MISSION...

...Is to rule the galaxy as the greatest fleet commander in the AstroNest universe. To accomplish this mission, you will need to research technology, colonize planets and work with your faction members to fight aliens and rival faction members.
