From the same developer as Bomber Crew and is a similar style of game. Rather than World War II though, players are tasked with defending Earth against a mysterious new alien menace by carefully recruiting crew members, designing their own spaceship and venturing across the cosmos.
What's so much fun about the game is selecting and training your crew, then working out how best to use them in each mission. The new space setting allows much more player freedom and campaign unpredictability than the World War setting, with much greater mission variety and deeper strategic gameplay.
You have to deal with alien boardings, getting sucked out into space, running out of oxygen, system failures, ship fires and whatever else the campaign can throw at you.

PS Plus Extra
Space Crew: Legendary Edition expands the original game and can be purchased seperatley. If you brought the game originally you get a free update with these features:
- New campaign where you take on a droid army led by rogue androids previously allied with the United Defence Force.
- Away Team missions where you leave your ship and venture on foot for the first time with three of your crew onto outposts and large vessels.
- Legendary Crew members to build and personalise your ultimate crew. They are discovered and rescued in missions and offer new abilities and superior stats, to bolster your efforts against the enemy threat.
A lot of small subtitles for dialogue. There is a Large UI option although this isn't enabled on Switch.
You can slow down and speed up time in the game to reduce pressure, although this is a combat game where pressure is designed to be part of the challenge.
