Prepare for a battle of a life-time.

It is free-to-play and features online high-scores and game statistics. Play to become a hero as you fight your way into the high-scores.
The galaxy is under attack! You are a human pilot that has gained access to a secret prototype alien fighter! You are up against a whole fleet of evil alien invaders and have to visit different planets, solar-systems and asteroid fields, to ultimately fight and defeat the aliens, free the galaxy, save planet earth and the entire human race. Sounds easy?! Rest assured it won't be!!
Alien Crusader contains 25+ beautiful levels. Travel through interstellar spacescapes, fight your way through asteroid fields, defeat the secret alien bases and shoot down the alien motherships, to finally reach the aliens planetary ground base. Through the game you collect Spacecoins that you can use to buy weapon and technology upgrades between missions. As you improve your skill, new items are unlocked so you can upgrade your weapons and spaceship technology in the Shop. Weapons include the Vulcan Laser, the Pulse Cannon, Heat-seeking Rockets and Plasma Smart Bombs. Other upgrades are Dual Cannon, Dual Rocket, Spacecoin Magnet, the Antaris Spaceship and more.
Playing Alien Crusader is completely free for Standard membership. You can reach all stages and practice up to stage 10, although with limited continues. At any time you wish, you can upgrade to a Premium membership in the Shop. Upgrading to Premium is a permanent, one-time action that rewards you 100.000 Spacecoins and unlocks Infinite Continues and the Two-Player Co-Op Mode, so you can play with a friend.
