galaxy gate energy
this game is great fun if you have the time and patience. otherwise by item mall, everything you can buy from in game credits can be purchased indirectly thru buying an in game currency called uridium. several people also get bots and hacks which is technically not allowed, but happens anyway. support will also deny the existance of these faults. support takes some time dealing with and you may have to contact them about a problem multiple times, or ask another player and just deal with it. lag is also a killer for this game. i have a web browser dedicated to this game only to minimize stored data. it barely makes up for my slower processing speed and low end high speed internet connection. but this game is very easy to play. the space ship is fairly easy to upgrade to full elite(having the best of all lasers, generators, engines, drones, extras, ship).
gameplay is fairly easy to figure out. you control your ship with your mouse. number buttons are customizable to select lasers, rockets, mines, extras(jump chip, cloak, smart bomb, instasheild, ect). there are 3 companies you can select from. mmo, eic, vru. whatever company you are, the others are considered enemies. there are several maps which are connected by gates/portals to take you to other maps. which are unlocked by leveling up. you level up by killing aliens and doing quests. and later on by pvp battles. bonus boxes are provided on most maps and can contain credits, uridium, ammo, jackpot dollars, or galaxy gate spins. there are several quests that help you level up faster and new quests are unlocked as you level up. for those players that do not earn enough uridium to buy certain ammo/extras/ships/weapons/ect. trade allows you to place bids on items. but be careful. credits are not refunded if you do not bid high enough.
i guess the best part of the game are the hunts/pvp battles. if you use ts(teamspeak) and you join a clan. you can go on hunts and go terrorize the newer players the same as has probably happened to you when you start. you can use teamspeak to coordinate attacks and communicate faster if you are under attack. so in summary this game is pretty fun if you have the time to be a dedicated player or know someone that has played for a while to help start you up.
