Space alert is a team survival game. Players take on the role of a crew of space explorers sent out through hyperspace to survey a dangerous sector of the galaxy. The game is played alongside one of many 10-minute Soundtracks (on included CDs, downloadable MP3 files, or by scenario cards). during these 10 minutes, The crew must defend the ship from hostile attacks while it scans the enemy sector. If they succeed, The ship brings back valuable data. If they fail… it is time to train a new crew. Players do not compete against each other. Instead, they work together against the challenges presented By The game. The difficulty of the game can be chosen by the players themselves. Completing the most difficult missions requires close teamwork.
