Imperator Sidereus is a 3D space combat simulator where players battle to eliminate the massive base of the opposing team! The base serves as both the player spawn point, and the repair/rearm center for the team. If the teamís base is destroyed by the opposing team, then they lose the match. Players must defend it at all cost while strategically coordinating offensive attacks against the opposing teamís base.
