Description

Crusaders Of Space is a single person, shareware, space shooter of the fixed screen variety.

The game takes place after a surprise attack by dastardly space aliens. The long war which followed has left Earth's defences in tatters and it falls to a single pilot to battle their way inside the alien command centre and destroy the controlling intelligence, the 'Main Brain'. This will render the aliens totally disorganised and is therefore the only way Earth can be saved.

The game consists of two missions each of which contains ten levels that can be played on three difficulty settings. As the player progresses the opposing enemy ships become progressively more numerous and harder to defeat. The player has only one life with which to play this game and achieve a high score. However as they progress they can collect weapon power ups and shields and when they take damage instead of dying instantly their ship loses one of its power ups.

There is in-game music, a high score table, and the game can be played via the mouse, keyboard, or gamepad.
