Fascinating, isn’t it? And this is just the alpha! Keep reading to know more about this Web3 masterpiece!
A brief intro to Phantom Galaxies: four ideas for your journey in this hot space sim
In brief, Phantom Galaxies combines elements of a space exploration game with advanced RPG quests. This title is highly recommended to the players who can’t live without the Gundam games, the fans of the Transformers movie series and the Pacific Rim franchise.
In the beginning, you join a ranger squad as a pilot of a mechanized starfighter. Your primary mission is to maintain peace in the distant “non-colonization areas” of the galaxy. These remote areas are plagued by numerous enemies, like pirate guilds and evil Sha’Har aliens. Though the aliens have a technological advantage, human pilots try to counter them with their exceptional craftsmanship.
We could talk about the game’s exciting lore for a long time. But we don’t want to spoil the fun for you, and we’ll just share the four amazing ideas for your virtual space journey below.
Explore the galaxy on your starfighter
Start with choosing your Mecha Starfighter. Remember that each one comes with its own set of traits, like speed, armor, and weapons.
Each robot allows you to explore the galaxy. Simply press the G button to transform into a spaceship. You can use a system of space portals to travel between the sectors. However, sometimes you will have to fly a lot to reach one of them. So, keep speed in mind when selecting your robot.
Engage in epic space battles
As you may guess, the space offers a lot more than just sightseeing. Your craft is equipped with an array of dangerous weapons, such as turrets and missiles. It’s a dangerous force. Pursue your enemies and use all your firepower to eliminate them! And don’t forget to press A or S twice to dodge the enemy shots!
Win robot fights on the ground
Though you may use a mecha mode in space, it best suits ground operations. Use your rockets to glide on the surface and smash your enemies with your machine gun or laser blade.
Communicate with other characters and get involved in side quests
Apart from the main storyline, there are various locations and different characters in the game. Do not hesitate to explore the ranger base and talk to your crewmates to receive more tasks for your journey.
