Starblast.io or Starblast is a multiplayer shooting game created and developed by Neuronality that can be played on the original site or via a standalone which is available to be downloaded by any ECP owners and any players that have purchased the Starblast on steam. You can also get the game on iTunes and Google play as of April 2018, there are no ECPs in those platforms currently.

The main premise behind the base game involves navigating a player controlled ship being piloted through an asteroid filled map. The asteroids can be broken either by being shot or rammed by the player which will in turn yield gems. These gems can either be used to upgrade the players ship or, when the gem cargo is filled, upgrade to one of two higher tier ships. There are currently 7 tiers of ships in Starblast throughout which 32 different ships can be found. The newest ships are FuryStar (Tier 5), Bastion (Tier 7) and Vanguard (Tier 4). Originally there was about 19 ships, in 2016, when the game came out.
There are currently four game modes available to be played via the main menu,these being Survival, Team mode, Deathmatch,and Invasion. On special occasions there is a mode called Battle Royale, where you get to try selected, custom made ships, made by the Starblast.io community. Matches of these four game modes will be automatically started and joined when a player selects their respective option from the main menu. Alternately, players that either own the standalone or an ECP will be able to create custom matches which act the same as automatically generated matches other than the fact that certain parameters can be altered and the resulting server can only be joined via a direct link. Creating a custom match is currently also the only way to access the fifth gamemode, Battle Royale. Note now always accessible with the addition of modding space.
There is a entire space on the main menu on the steam platform and on the home screen that is called modding space and there you can play community made game modes with more being added every so often.
