Is there a basic "How to Play" anywhere?

There are a number of things I’m just not figuring out. Is there a set of game-play instructions, aimed at players of previous versions or otherwise?

For example: I’ve been collecting food, but I don’t see what use it is. Used to be that it was cashed in for missiles, in previous CI versions, but obviously that isn’t happening now.

I’ve bought a couple of weapons, such as the Hypergun, including having upgraded it a couple of times. But I’m not seeing any effect of having done so. Do I need to activate it, or mount it, or something like that?

Stuff like that.

Food can be exchanged into keys by going to the space burger.

You need to mount it.


Sorry, there’ no manual yet :frowning: .

On the left side of your galaxy screen, choose the 2nd icon (that looks like a pilot helmet) and then “Fleet” and “Loadout”.

On this screen you can mount purchased equipment onto your flagship. If you don’t mount them, they won’t have any effect.


First time a player goes to a Space Burger place:

Space Burger: You’re here to sell us food?

Player: Yes!

SB: Thank goodness! Our supply lines have been cut!

SB: We’ll be happy to buy as much as you want to sell!

SB: If it’s completely fresh, of course.

P: Of course.

SB: And you haven’t handled it at all?

P: Definitely not.

SB: Great! You’ve got a deal!

P: So how did you get your supplies before?

SB: Oh, we had a number of agents.

SB: Who brought it in completely fresh.

SB: And definitely did not handle it at all.

P: … Great. Urp
