The game itself was actually pretty fun but the controls were horrible, mainly because it's unintuitive for an RTS. It's not entirely your fault because it's made in flash.
However, some things that really bugged me were that I'd tell my ships to move when I wanted to deselect them. I couldn't right click to tell my ships to perform actions and that's pretty standard in an RTS.
The gameplay was very slow, which I didn't like. Everything moved at such a snails pace.
