Alpha Ship is a mobile prequel to Alpha One. The game is part shooter and part jigsaw puzzle. It is the story of how the Alpha One ship was created. In the game your ultimate goal is to create a jump-drive so you can travel to the other base stations scattered in far away star systems (the main plot of Alpha One). In order to build your invention you need to find key materials and components from floating space rocks in various locations. Then you need to figure out how they can fit together to make your invention work.
