Innovative Gameplay

In Aequitas Orbis your spaceship is in a realistic 2D gravitational space, where planets and moon pulls you towards them.
You can, of course, achieve stable orbits like satellites do around Earth, or you can jump from one planet to another like space agencies’ probes does.

In this environment, the player is challenged with different tasks, based on the game mode:

  • In single player the goal is to destroy all the asteroids floating around the space before they collide with a planet
  • In cooperative mode the goal is the same, but you’ll be able to play with friends and you’ll have to survive endless wave of asteroids
  • In deathmatch mode you’ll have to destroy other players to reach a certain score and win. This mode is playable in teams (eg. 2vs2, 3vs3, etc)
  • In capture the flag mode each team will have a planet assigned, and a flag spawning around it, to goal is to steal the enemy flag and bring it back to your own
  • In conquest mode, some planets will be conquerable, take a stable low orbit around it, and you’ll start capturing it. Once a planet it’s capture it’ll start generating points for your team. But be careful, planets can be captured back the same way!

Maneuvering in space is hard and requires some time to get used to it, but anyone can master it! A hint? Try to think about where you want to be 5 seconds from now instead of trying to go there now.
