Galactic Empires is a 3D space shooter. This free version has a single scenario: Escort a transport ship and protect it from waves of enemy ships. 

If there is sufficient interest I plan to add additional scenarios. 

If there is a lot of interest I'd like to add multiplayer support, exploration & colonization, economics and trade, etc.

Hey there we meet again

i have the video ready and your game is epic

i remember playing these types of games before but this one is also good, its super polished and gameplay, graphics are all good, even the AI in the game is good.

but when i started the game just started and had little time to start recording (so pls consider adding a start menu)

other than that can you pls add these features as well

1. a tutorial (i saw the press f2 but when i did it opened another browser and then when i went back to the game it showed me all the controls so pls add a separate option for tutorial or something like that)

2. add an objective (i know that the objective was there but it went by so fast so it became a free roam for me)

3. make a good list of weapons (i didnt know that pressing right mouse also works but when i did a rocket shot out which i had no idea what to do with, maybe add this in tutorial)

4. after making all these changes consider adding the multiplayer mode and all that you mentioned in the description because the game is just very good

i hope you will enjoy the video and if you do pls subscribe my channel and i hope to see more games from you

heres the video:

hope you like it

have fun


Thanks very much for taking the time to review my game and for your suggestions. I can see where it was confusing.

I don't know why the game just started for you. There is a start screen:

Since any keypress or mouse click will start the game I'm guessing when you started recording it also started the game. This will not be an issue for most players. 

I'll see about making a tutorial to make it less confusing. 

The HUD shows Particle Beam and Torpedoes and the help screen (F1) shows the controls for both. 

After the transport reaches the first waypoint a new waypoint is spawned farther away and you have to keep protecting the transport as it navigates to the next waypoint. I will add a message after Waypoint Reached saying "Next waypoint in 3000au".

You can't "win" the game you just try to survive as long as possible and get as high a score as possible. Your score is based on how many waypoints it reaches successfully as well as how many enemies you destroyed. You even get points for shooting asteroids :

Thanks again for your review. I've added a tutorial as requested. Check it out. 

hello i was wondering if you would be interested in making a  space game with me and my team
