Blue cards are defensive cards where you can put up barricades, add hit points to your rocket, or add radar. Players can new cards to their deck and they can lock cards out of their deck so those cards appear more frequently in the enemy’s hand. Players can go in a single player mode against the computer or try their luck against a real opponent.

You can add different parts to your rocket to make it more powerful and add powerups such as a damage increase or rocket repair increase. The game does require game cash to unlock the better cards and items, which will turn away many players. The game could use more basic card options for beginners to buy in the game store. Players who buy cards with game cash will have a distinct advantage over those that don’t purchase anything in the game.
