Gate 88 is described by PC Gamer UK as to "Asteroids what the Taj Mahal is to Lego." In this fast-paced, frenetic blend of real-time strategy and 2D space shooter, players dogfight in an upgradable command ship while developing base defenses, issuing squadron attacks, and researching new technologies. Though Gate 88's abstract vector-art is unabashedly old school, Gamehippo.com boasts, "the gameplay is anything but retro. It's new, fresh, and exciting."

Gate 88 is inspired by classics like Herzog Zwei, Star Control, Subspace, Homeworld, and Parsec 47.

Classic game all in itself. It's great news that there is a Mac OS X version as well! However, the forum doesn't seem up to date...I wonder how the developer is doing...

This game is like a free Starcraft combined with asteroids :) And that`s really good.
A little hard to learn all the many controls (playability 3).

This game is really well done. Queasy has combined a lot of familiar gameplay elements and come up with something original and intriguing. Gate 88 has an elegant mix of action and strategy that hasn't been seen since Armor Alley. Nice music, too.
