Simplicity is sometimes one of the best things in life. When it comes to gaming, it can be extremely relaxing to find a game that doesn’t see you having to learn many mechanics to play it. So it was nice for me to find a game on the “simplistic” side of things this week.

I give you - “SpaceOne.”

“SpaceOne” is an online multiplayer game that sees you piloting a fleet of triangle-shaped ships and trying to best your opponents in space combat. It is essentially a space battle arena. It has the feeling of a space arcade throwback as well with its retro aesthetic and color palette.

You start off with three ships. For each player you eliminate, you gain more ships. You can also increase your fleet size by shooting at glowing objects that spawn in the galaxy map. The bigger your fleet, the more powerful you become. However, bigger also means you move slower. Small fleets zip around, dodging attacks and surprising enemies. Large fleets destroy everything in their path, as long as they can take a few hits. If a ship in your fleet gets hit, it dies and floats away, but only that ship dies. You only lose when all ships are eliminated. You win when all other players in the galaxy are eliminated.

It only takes a few seconds to jump in, grow a fleet and see how long you can last. My personal high score is 161 points. Can you best it?

“SpaceOne” is free to play on
