Play OverviewPlay Overview

Space Crew (2020) is a strategy game where you use a team of characters to control a spaceship and explore the galaxy. Unlike other space flight games, you don't directly control your craft but get your crew to look after different aspects of the mission. It's like helming your own Starship Enterprise or Millennium Falcon.

From the same developer as Bomber Crew and is a similar style of game. Rather than World War II though, players are tasked with defending Earth against a mysterious new alien menace by carefully recruiting crew members, designing their own spaceship and venturing across the cosmos.

What's so much fun about the game is selecting and training your crew, and then working out how best to use them in each mission. The new space setting allows much more player freedom and campaign unpredictability than the World War setting, with much greater mission variety and deeper strategic gameplay.

You have to deal with alien boardings, getting sucked out into space, running out of oxygen, system failures, ship fires and whatever else the campaign can throw at you.
