Solar Crusade, the follow-up to Chaos Control, is a cartoon-movie based science-fiction rail shooter game like Rebel Assault. The player takes on the role of a fighter for the Orbital Defense Force (ODF). At the beginning the ODF thinks that they have defeated their enemies – the Kesh-Rhan, but that was a mistake.
In five chapters, the player has to shoot everything they see on the screen. Some of the enemies leave ammunition or energy-pills on the battle field. In some cases, the player can choose the direction they fly in and may even stumble upon a secret level.
