The multi-player portion of the game has four game modes and focuses on pitting the players against each other:

THE CONQUER GALAXIES SYSTEM

Space Overlords has a built in level editor in which players can create levels to play and share with other players. Those user created levels will be showed on the COMMUNITY tab on the main UI of the game. Each player will have his/her created planets associated with their account. Other players can try to beat those planets in MULTIPLAYER MODE. Each victory on the Multiplayer mode awards points that count towards a global game leader board.

THE COMBO SYSTEM

The combos in Space Overlords are long and awesome! For each building, inhabitant or ship destroyed there will be combo points awarded (+50) for each 100 hits e.g.: 300 hits = 300 + 150 points. The MAX COMBO indicator will tell the player the maximum amount of consecutive hits he/she has achieved on the current game.
