Maybe spell it backwards and add a couple exclamation points:

 

"Emag Ecaps!!"

 

Or do it like one of those computer passwords you think you will remember, but can't:

 

"56@$3 9@M3"

 

Or just call it "Space Game", so when people try to AA search or Google it, they will get 100's of unrelated posts ahead of it.

 

I votes for "sure, why not"

That's what I meant with "generic" name. :)

 

If you want to stick to the name, maybe you could use a prefix and/or suffix to make the name more unique.

In and of itself the title is a deterrent for me. For me to accept it it would have to have some sort of idea or concept to justify such a silly title.

I don't think that generic-ness is necessarily the problem. I think you could have an equally generic title that was preferable to me if it was less silly and more formal. .. Starship is a good name in my opinion and perfectly appropriate for what that game is, but pretty generic.

Hey dude, just roaming some of your stuff. "Space game" has always worked for me. I've never questioned the name once. First time I heard it, I assumed that was it's title, and not the genre. So it works. :)
But if you're looking for random names to consider for the heck of it, i'll let my brain do some thinkin about it, for the heck of it. I like naming stuff lol

I had also considered Space: 2600, but perhaps I'll save that name in case I try to do a faithful recreation on another system.

Imagine for a moment that you want to search the web for websites mentioning your game. 

 

Hint: Current hits for "Space Game" "Atari 2600" ~50,000 ;)

"Space Game"...so it's a game about trying to store a video game collection?
