The trouble with space is it%26rsquo;s all three-dimensional. You think you%26rsquo;re doing pretty well in a scrap, and then it turns out there%26rsquo;s an enemy Battlecruiser and 42 legions of their finest fighters descending on you from above.
ThreadSpace: Hyperbol does away with such unpleasantness by limiting play to a two-dimensional plane. Yes, you%26rsquo;re a spaceship, but you slide about like some sort of rocket-powered game of intergalactic curling. This all works tremendously well mind you, and to the game%26rsquo;s distinct advantage.
