Description of Space Crusade

Space Crusade is a follow-up of sorts to Gremlin's underrated Hero Quest. Like its predecessor, Space Crusade is an excellent tactical turn-based wargame based on a Games Workshop boardgame, this time the more famous Warhammer 40,000 universe. A ship carrying high-ranking marines have been hijacked by aliens, and it's up to you as commander of 4 veteran marines to save the day. The game can be played from either 2D overhead (useful for planning movement) or 3D perspective for up-close-and-personal view of the aliens.

The game has many random elements from the board game that can get you killed by sheer (bad) luck no matter how careful your planning may be, but luck can be on your side if your defence die roll is high enough. There are also many random events that occur at the end of your turn that add to the fun, such as "Master Control" which gives you control over all the doors on the level, which you can use to trap or crush the aliens. The game gives you score at the end of each level, which makes an excellent incentive to replay to try to increase your score, either by accomplishing the mission in less number of moves, or fulfill secondary objectives. Two thumbs up!

Great game, especially for Warhammer fans. The cross between X-COM and the first Jagged Alliance. *FIRST* use the crack file, and *THEN* run the game's exe. This will alleviate the code issue people are having.

I run the SC.bat version and the game starts just fine but i cant move the cursor in-game. It registers when i click but i cant move it. Does anyone else have a similar problem?

I can't get past the manual word for security
No idea how to run sc.bat or to use the crack when I've got D-Fend Reloaded running
I was just clicking the game to run from in there.

Any suggestions?

Using windows vista if that's an issues
