Do well and a bigger, badder, more explosive weapon will deploy out of the ceiling and clean those Moldies right up. Be quick, however, the Moldies don’t dawdle…Mr. Ernesto is there to help, so expect upgrades, new weapons and of course plenty of cappuccino.

Test your wits in single player campaign, go head-to-head with up to 5 opponents in multiplayer or experiment with new strategies in AI skirmish mode. Most of all, you’ll need a bright mind, cunning, and sound tactics.

When the war begins, leave the little things behind and dive into austere soundscapes as you immerse yourself in starfleet command. From now on, what matters is your grasp of tactics and strategy, not how fast you can click. Spacecom is about creativity in planning, not complexity of game mechanics.
