About the Game

Double Star is an epic space adventure that provides a nostalgic experience, taking you back to the simpler days of turn-based, single player, space war games. As a player, you are in command of a powerful starship. You issue orders and interact with your crew on missions to save the galaxy from an alien invasion.

Double Star is a reimagined version of the old, text-based trek games, which were popular in the 1980's and 1990's. It combines classic space war gameplay with elements of a contemporary, storyline-driven game.

Three phases of game play are provided: (1) training at the academy; (2) saving our planet from the alien invasion; (3) searching the galaxy for the alien home world. Twenty levels of play, with mysteries, challenges, and rewards along the way.

Price: Free
