If you're already in the game and want to get straight into building stuff jump to the Beginner's Guide.
If you've ever played Ogame, StarCraft, Barons of the Galaxy, Bastion Siege, Xterium, AD2460 or Astro Empires, SpaceHunt is pretty similar, except that SpaceHunt is simpler to learn, faster and more enjoyable from the start.
SpaceHunt is a text-based / browser-based, money-management and space-war themed massively multiplayer online game with incremental and idle features, this means that you don't need to be playing all the time, for example, sending a fleet to another planet can take one hour, so you can play while doing something else.
You are the 👨✈️ Commander of your own planet where you can have 🏭 Buildings and ✈️ Units (spaceships). From each 🏭 Building you can run jobs: gather resources, research skills, build Units, teleport, and much more.
Units enable you to: 🛰 Explore the Universe to find other planets, 🚀 Raids to steal resources (and defend from raids), 📦 transfer goods to others and 💰 trade too.
The Universe is full of other players like you, some are peaceful and some want to steal your precious resources. Apart from players, there are 👿 Bosses, which are super powerful, but you shouldn't worry for now, they won't attack you.
