Description
A throwback to the PDP days. This hack changes Space War to be more like the 1962 game that inspired it!
 
What's New
Smaller ships. More thrust required for velocity/momentum. Smaller missiles. Limited travel of missiles. Slower velocity of missiles (which are subject to gravity). Sun gravity increased three times over the original game. Outer space is Black. New retro player colors.
