"There are 3 maps per"level" one space, and two planet.
You each start on one planet, and then there is a special command to send your planes up in to space( second map comes in here). You then need to use a "hyperspace" counter so that you can't go back and forth immediately, and there are such things you need to swerve or destroy, such as mines and such.
You then need to descend on to your opponent's planet, where you can unload your troop forces, and use fighters and troops to rain terror upon your foe."
It's similar, but not entirely. That's why I said I had the core idea first.
