Starshatter: The Gathering Storm updated!

A tune-up and some tweaking to keep this space combat simulator working like a well-oiled star cruiser

For Immediate Release

Staten Island, NY, December 20th, 2006 - Matrix Games ( www.matrixgames.com) and Destroyer Studios are proud to announce that their space combat simulation and real time strategy blend, Starshatter: The Gathering Storm, has been updated. The update brings a variety of fixes and some additional realism and balance tweaking. Most notably, excessive fighter fuel usage is now more reasonable and thrusters use fuel more realistically. The update also addressed and improved the AI related to recovery and queuing of inbound fighters.

Starshatter: The Gathering Storm challenges both the mind and the reflexes of space combat sim fans. The Starshatter series presents gamers with a unique amalgamation of heart-pounding space combat action to test the wits and reflexes without sacrificing an engaging real time strategy element that will challenge the mind.

Gamers can find themselves in a variety of roles that can start out as a grunt on the frontlines of an intergalactic war, flying a small fighter tasked with dog fighting, escorting frigates, and destroying enemy installations. Given enough time, talent, and success, the player's good work as a grunt will land them a promotion which may eventually lead to commanding an entire fleet at the helm of a massive behemoth starship!
