The menu is the top level of control. It can only be accessed in full from the main screen. However, a number of menu options have keyboard shortcuts. The menu deals primarily with game state. When the menu is activated, the game, if it was running, is automatically paused.

Depending on the game's status, some menu options may not be available and are greyed out.
