Get ready to solve exciting space missions
In the game, Space School Simulator: The Academy, the player plays the character of a student at a university. The player learns about advanced piloting at the academy. In the academy, the player is given a task to solve twenty simulated missions on different planets of the universe. When the player accomplishes all his missions successfully, he gets graduated from the academy.
The missions which the player is asked to accomplish are self-contained missions. The credits or causalities of the previous mission are not transferred to the later missions. This implies that all the missions are independent of each other. The choices made in one mission do not have any effect on the other. Thus, management becomes easier.
The players can modify their ships and give them names of their choice. However, the ships are given specific names by default and these names can be related to distinct circumstances of the game.
Controlling the vehicles
The player controls the vehicles from the perspective of a first person and with the help of several controls given in the game. ALL the ships are equipped with weapons and skim on the surface of the various planets. Most of the missions involve the destruction of enemy robots. Moreover, the player needs to refuel their ships wherever possible so that the ship does not run out of fuel.
