I bought this game off of Steam just a few days ago, and I’ve been loving it. The learning curve is a bit steep and there’s a lot of intricacies to all the stats and numbers I haven’t figured out yet, but while exploring, I discovered something.
I was curious about the power of each of the weapons in the game, so I got out my calculator and divided the damage dealt by the fire rate of each weapon to determine which is the strongest, and the Cruiser Laser was twice-and-a-half times stronger than anything else. I promptly loaded up a cruiser with only Cruiser lasers and deployed eight cruisers in a few missions. They perform beautifully, but I feel like I’ve broken the game. Why are they so powerful? Is this a game balance issue, or am I missing something?
