Centauri Sector is a tactical, space combat game that combines several gameplay elements effectively to create an addicting game. You assume the role of a fleet commander, starting out with a basic corvette class ship, tasked with defending the Tabula Rasa system from constant space pirate attacks. The main campaign plays in turns, as players move their ship or fleet once per turn before engaging in the tactical battles.

After each successful mission, players gain prestige (money/credits) and experience, to level up and unlock skills like speed boosts, shield upgrades and more. The level ups also allow fleet slots to add ships to a squad. Not only can different ship types be added, but each ship has different weapon and module slots depending on the class. Players can also purchase and add modules that increase shield capacity, buffer a weapon’s overheating rate, and speed up engines.


  • Pilot your flag ship in an awesome top down 2D combat.
  • While in combat manage your shields, power, weapons capacitor and more.
  • Engage in advanced tactical combat by forming your own fleet and issuing commands to destroy the pirates.
  • Gain new active and passive skills and bonuses by climbing through the ranks.
  • Equip your ships with a wide variety of modules and guns.
  • Engage in a dynamic war powered by a turn based dynamic campaign that doesn't always plays the same.
  • Participate in ground defense missions.

Centauri Sector reviews and comments

Very difficult to sort. I once packed it to the turn-based Strategy games. It can only be taken, because I have to make certain tactical Decisions where I first use my Battle group. And with the tower defense share served a Subgenre of Strategy. But actually, this is already a Shoot ' em up. I can buy better Ships (4 Ships to Choose from) and upgrade. To do this, Pack two Escort Ships. Then we fly from Fight to Fight and classically shoot down the Pirate ships. But beautiful genre mix, unfortunately due to the thin Feature List and narrowly limited Card only an entertaining and not a long Pleasure. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=49CWqNjmzFg

Gameplay Centauri Sector is a Rogue-like TopDown Space Shooter With Sharing strategy games. Normally you are on the World Map, here you can move Lap Based while Enemies and friendly Spaceships also move along in lap based. On the Map there are now various possibilities: 1. Shopping on a Planet: Here you can improve your Ship, buy other Ships, hire up to 2 Escort ships and equip your Ship with the Goods 2. Attack enemies: The red enemies can attack. Attacked and destroyed are the 3rd ships to defend: Sometimes Defense Events appear on the Map, here you have to defend the Attacked ships and destroy the Enemy. 4. Planet Defense: Sometimes Planetary Defense Events appear on the Map, here you have to defend a Planet. Unlike the normal Missions, you end up here on the Planet and have to protect a Base in a simplified mix of Command & Conquer and Tower Defense. Positive-No Crashes, runs fluidly-Game principle is well explained and is easy to Use-different mission types-Even short Games with later play possible-control went very easily and intelligibly by hand-Game HUD very clear Neutral-Game Graphics could be better. -Ground Combat Game principle could be built more strategically-After about 2h you can have almost all the successes-Could sometimes tolerate a little more variety-Playing card very small negative-It occurred that in a Fight the Graphics of the Spaceships were not visible-Sometimes Events appear To be able to make it through the Ship's Reach before time ran out-Game very easy in the Ground, but if you lose you start with a Ship without Bonuses, then it can be that you go down quickly if the Attacking Armies of the Opponents already Quite advanced. -For 9.99€ but Quite high in the Price Conclusion A Small strategic Space shooter With Ground Combat Insoles that is a lot of fun and also demands something strategically without getting too heavy, but unfortunately after some Time it becomes a bit Monotonous and is something Outside of a Sales High in Price. Still, I can recommend it to Fans of this Game genre and think that many people can have fun.
