The world arena is now much bigger and ships now
have momentum. There have also been a large number
of minor feature enhancements and bugfixes.
Various gameplay changes were made. A much larger battle arena was implemented, ships now have momentum, capital ships can move, and it is harder for bombers to outrun fighters. A large number of improvements were made to aid tournaments. Various minor feature enhancements were made and a few minor problems and bugs were fixed.

GalaxyHack allows you to design a fleet of spaceships which can then be tested in AI script based battles against fleets designed by other players. Though battles take place in real time, the strategy comes beforehand, both in writing short AI scripts in an easy-to-use proprietary scripting language, and also in the set up and selection of your forces.
