Friday is here once again and it’s time to play a fun flash game on company time. Today we take a look at the space shooter Omega Crisis.
At the start of the game you’re given the basic story of the game, defending the space outpost, and instructions on how to play.
Controls are easy, just target the enemy and use the left mouse button to fire.
After each level you’re shown the results and how many Tech Points you’ve earned.
The more Tech Points you earn, you have a better chance of upgrading your weapons and base defense before the next level.
You can also go into Manage Mode by hitting the Space bar, and select gunners and other types of weapons to help defend the outpost.
Choose your mission from the timeline after successfully completing a mission.
You can also use A,W,D,S to move around the map and see exactly where the enemy ships are coming from. This makes it easier to destroy them before they get too close to your base.
This game is a lot of fun and is similar to different “Desktop Defense” type games. If you’re looking for a fun way to waste the afternoon, and not look at TPS reports, Omega Crisis can get you though until the whistle blows.
