All the reasons you should play this game!
The player is able to equip their spaceship with a primary and a secondary weapon. Most of the secondary weapons are equipped with a locking device. This locking system uses a homing missile projectile. The targeting process is as follows:
In order to evade a homing missile, some special manoeuvres can be made. But the player has another option: Flares, sometimes known as “chaff”. Flares are an option to redirect an incoming homing projectile to another target. The new target will be the flare. If a homing projectile enters a certain range of a flare, the missile prioritizes the flare above the original target.
