Of course, your new captain was very diplomatic, and upon encountering giant bugs that may very well be the reason the aliens abandoned the planet, he chose to attempt to communicate. The bugs communicated by biting his head clean off. So now, once again without a captain, the crew must attempt to complete the mission by exploring tunnels and obtaining relics, all while fighting off a swarm of bugs!
The Captain Is Dead: Dangerous Planet uses the mechanisms of The Captain is Dead in a whole new way. Through exploration and area defense, you’ll try to survive long enough to obtain the necessary relics — but should the bugs attack the shuttlecraft enough times, you won’t be able to escape! The Dangerous Planet tunnel system is modular, for easier and harder challenges.
