Q:What is Space Bastards ?

Space Bastard is a top view arcade game for 2 to 4 players. Each player controls a spaceship and must grab the diamonds attached to the other ships. The objective is to gain as many points as possible by the end of the game. Each player has a spaceship with diamonds attached to its tail. The players fight in a closed area.

The goal is to keep the most diamonds possible behind your ship so you can receive more points. Players can also collect points by running into randomly spawned diamonds on the map or by breaking the other players' tails and collect the scattered diamonds.
