Unknown Sector Walkthrough

Unknown Sector is one of the most engrossing and addictive action shooting games online; challenging you to navigate your way through ninety-five different levels, each one different and a little more difficult than the last. With a wealth of weapons and upgrades you can add to your ship, this game won't leave you feeling bored or tired of the playing despite its length. This is something that many action shooting games with a comparable number of levels simply can't claim but this one manages to keep things fresh and exciting. The graphics are entertaining enough to hold your attention but not so detailed that the game doesn't run smoothly or that you get distracted from the game play. There are three levels of difficulty to choose from so anyone, regardless of skill or experience level will be able to find a challenge that suits them. In addition to all of this, the game offers an automatic save option that will save each time you complete a sector. While that isn't terribly uncommon in action shooting games, this one also offers you the chance to save the game at any time during play by clicking the 'save' button at the bottom right of the screen.

To begin in Unknown Sector, you have to choose the sector you want to enter from the star map. To choose a sector, simply click on it and then click the enter button at the bottom left of the screen. You'll also see the basic information about what you can expect from that sector at the bottom left. If you have more than one sector unlocked, use this information to choose your sector. You'll see the type of enemies you can expect to encounter and get a basic idea of how many enemies you're going to see as well as the difficulty rating of the level. For a beginner, it's a good idea to choose a sector with a low difficulty rating. This gives you the chance to get used to the controls of the game and how the game is played. While there will be a limited number of options in the beginning, you'll unlock more as you progress in the game.

Your basic ship in Unknown Sector is more than enough to get you through the first few sectors in the game. As you progress though, as is often the case with action shooting games, you will need to build on that basic ship and improve. The great thing about this game is that you are not only able to buy new guns, armor, missiles and engines for your ship, but you're also able to buy entirely new ships. This is something that's quite uncommon in the world of action shooting games and is a big part of what makes the game so appealing. In addition to being able to purchase all of those items, you're also able to customize the color of your ship which gives the game a more personalized feel which makes it far more inviting to play when compared to a game that only offers you standard upgrades.

In Unknown Sector there are three different types of parts you can buy for your ship in the Market - centers, wings and internals - and each part comes in three different sizes - small (S), medium (M) and large (L). It's important to remember, however, that your ship may not have a slot you can use to equip it with a part that you buy so before you make your purchase, check what slots you have available by visiting the Hangar. The Hangar is also where you will go to equip your ship once you've made your purchase. Checking the Hangar first will help prevent you from wasting money and will help you make the best decisions to improve the strength of your ship when you're looking at parts you can purchase. There are twenty different types of ships you can purchase (also from the Market) so it's also important to make sure the part you are interested in buying can be used on your ship. Instead of looking at the parts you can buy, consider looking at your ship and your ship's performance first. Decide what aspects of your ships performance could use strengthening and look for parts that will meet that need. You'll get the most out of your money that way and build the strongest ship possible.

Overall, Unknown Sector is one of the most fully features and entirely engrossing action shooting games online simply because of the options offered and the length of the game. All too many action shooting games end just as you're starting to really enjoy them. This game, on the other hand, gives you exactly what you're looking for. The new weapons and ships keep the game fresh and interesting so you never feel bored despite the length of the game. Experienced players are especially going to like that aspect of the game while beginners will love the chance to really get a feel for the game before things start getting difficult. This is an excellent action shooting game anyone who considers themselves a fan of the genre needs to play at least once. Just remember, when a game is this much fun, playing once is rarely enough. This is a game that will keep you coming back for more.
