- large 2D scrolling play areas
- a variety of different planets to refuel and trade at
- six different precious (and not so precious) minerals to mine
- variety of different enemy ships each with differing strengths speeds and weapons
- a range of weapons from the humble laser up to guided missiles which lock on to enemy ships and fly around asteroids
- limited fuel (dock at any planet to refuel)
- minefields with proximity based charges
- stars (even binary systems) with gravity
- radar system to spot planets and enemy ships
- planetary shield systems to safeguard docked craft
- auto-repairing shield systems
- multiplayer mode for up to 8 players to fight a deathmatch amongst the asteroids

For game speed issue: Download ThirteenAG's Ultimate Asi Loader (x86) and put the .dll in the game folder. Rename the .dll to 'ddraw.dll'. Create a text file in the game folder and name it 'wndmode.ini' so the extension is .ini instead of .txt. Copy this in wndmode.ini (After saving the file Windows adds a '?' at the end of 'Border=0', delete it):
