SpaceCombat is an open source PC game. It's a single player space simulation. Similar (commercial) games were TIE Fighter and Freespace. When you liked these games, you will love SpaceCombat.
It's recommended to play the game with a joystick.
When you run the game the first time, it will check the internet (souceforge.net) for the complete package (about 500MB). So, take a break, drink some coffee, speak to your mate...
Once this download is finished, you can play the game. Later on, it will check once a week for updates. (You may prevent this by modifying the file "data/options.xml".)
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
