Players battle it out in arena free space or in a bases. Typical games are capture the flag, team on team and league or wing matches. Players select a spaceship and weapons to craft a ship to meet their needs. Battling in a rich visual environment players compete in building their scores, stats, wins and kills. If you like fast action, intense and addictive fast action online space combat then Phoenix USC is the game for you.
I have been refining the animation effects for Phoenix USC as seen in these images. I have also been updating the map editor and adding in options for map parts with animation effects to make it is easy to add animation effects like this wormhole effect. The editor allows you to use sprite sheets or strips of animation and use those in game. Coupled with blending and transparency effects the result is pretty cool.
