    -Starboy Protectorate Defense, a Starboy game where you must defend Protectorate Cities from ruination using surface to air missile silos. Be wary though you have limit ammo so make sure every shot counts!

    Controls: WASD to move the targeting reticle and Numpad1/Numpad2/Numpad3 to launch missiles from their respective silos. Alternately you can use arrowkeys and 1/2/3 keys.

    -Starboy AstroPet, a virtual pet you can take anywhere! Feed and care for it, and watch as it grows up before your eyes. There are 9 potential forms your pet can change in to. Pets have different needs and preferences, get to know your pet to keep it happy.

    Controls: Mouse only, click the buttons or the pet to interact.

    -Starboy Aether Wings, Pilot a star fighter against swarms of enemy ships and dangerous obstacles in yout mission to defend the galaxy!

    Controls: WASD to move, space to shoot!

    -Starboy Ronin Rumble, Test your wit and skill against Hylotl Samurai by typing out the words as they appear on screen. Don't make too many mistakes or they will surely catch up with you.

    Controls: Type out the word at the top of the screen.

    Controls: A/D Move left or right around the planet. W/S Switch Weapons. Space Bar to shoot. Arrow keys can be used in place of WASD.

    You can craft them from the Wiring Station under the Mechanics tab or spawn one in admin mode with /spawnitem starboymeteoroidsgame, starboymeteoroidsarcade, starboyprotectoratedefensegame, starboyprotectoratedefensearcade, starboyastropet, starboyaetherwingsgame, starboyaetherwingsarcade, starboyroninrumblegame, starboyroninrumblearcade, starboyruinationgame, starboyruinationarcade

    [Known Issue] Beaming to or from ship with the games ui open crashes starbound. This is an issue in vanilla as well, waiting to see if it is addressed.
