Gathering resources and building infrastructure will be essential to ensuring your fellow explorers can endure the desolate terrain and prosper into a growing populace amidst alien threats. Protect the expanding base by taking to the skies to combat against AI and player-created spacecrafts as part of an exhilarating multiplayer experience. A well-functioning and self-sufficient economy will allow you to survive and thrive in Lunar Battle, in addition to mastering the following key gameplay features:

  • Build a Base – Create a thriving planetary colony by building all of the essentials a space community needs – power, food, water, tech and more. Customize building layouts to create the ultimate personalized galactic refuge.
  • Explore the Planet and Harvest Resources – Unearth precious resources including space ores, ship parts and untapped energy sources. Use the materials to keep your population growing and the colony booming.
  • Take Flight and Fight – Participate in Player-versus-Environment (PVE) and asynchronous Player-versus-Player (PVP) dogfights as part of the thrilling arcade space shooter experience. Use materials crafted and salvaged on the surface to outfit and upgrade space fighters with a selection of powerful lasers, plasma cannons, shields and more to become the terror of the stars!
  • Destroy the Enemy – Equip workers with blasters to fight off hordes of deadly aliens and expand human territory.
  • Conquer Campaigns – Beat 50 levels of pulse-pounding space action. Try to score three stars on each level to receive rewards and earn craftable salvage for completing missions.
