Hello new recruits!
Welcome to Dark Orbit Reloaded! I’ll take you through a guided tour of the game so you won’t feel lost. I know how new recruits usually feel so let me help you out!
First off, once you’ve chosen a character name, you’ll be asked to pick your allegiance. You can only choose one so pick the one you really like!
There are 3 choices: Mars Mining Operations, Earth Industries Corporation and Venus Resources Unlimited.
If you like to use force and aggression to get the job done, then Mars Mining Ops is the group for you.
On the other hand, if you prefer to use monetary might to gain the upper hand, then Earth Industries Corporation is the way to go.
Lastly, if you wield cunning and grace to defeat your enemies, or you’re a girl like me and is totally biased to the girl avatar, then Venus Resources Unlimited is the choice for you.
After you’ve chosen a side, you will be brought to the main page. You will find your profile, the shop, events and news, rankings and a lot more about Dark Orbit Reloaded.
More on this later on, for now, click “start” and let’s focus on the game!
On with the controls! To move your spacecraft, simply point and click your mouse pointer on the area you want to go. You can click on a location on the mini map and your ship will automatically go there. To attack a ship, click your enemy to target and press “1″. Oh and don’t spam “1″ when using missiles. Just one click is enough, double clicking it will turn off the attack.
By pressing “1″, “2″ or “3″ you will be able to use or consume the items you put in your action bar. With my action bar, “1″ is for missiles and “2″ is for rockets~ pew,pew!
Now on to the missions! New missions are marked with an “!”. Once you enter the game, fly to the right and you’ll see the skylab with a “!”
The starter missions are fairly simple. They will ask you to collect cargo boxes and kill several enemy ships. Enemies at this point are non-aggressive so they won’t attack you until you attack them first. You’ll have several of those missions to help you get a hang of the game.
Oh! And before I forget, you can adjust your settings or go into full screen mode by clicking the buttons at the upper right corner. Change the resolution, control the music volume, etc. Just hit the gear icon and fiddle with the settings.
Okay! So that’s it for now. Come back once you get a hang of the game and I’ll give you more tips!
C’mon pilot, you have a galaxy to rule! Play now!
