Endless Sky a great multiplatform space combat game

Endless Sky 1

Endless Sky is a 2D space combat game similar to the classic from the Escape Velocity series, in this game we must explore other star systems and earn money negotiating, carrying passengers or completing missions.

The profits generated can be used to buy a better combat ship or to upgrade weapons and engines.

As well it is possible to take sides in a civil war, Fight pirates or head to other systems and hope to find friendly aliens whose culture is more civilized.

After years of working in a factory, you've finally saved enough money to apply for a pilot's license and make a down payment on your first starship.

The backwater planet you grew up on sells only three ship models: a ferry, a cargo barge, and a light interceptor.

Depending on which one you choose, you'll start to make money transporting passengers, looking for good business deals, or perhaps blasting asteroids or taking jobs escorting freighter convoys.
