Pixel Starships Tips and Tricks
Keep your crew alive with these helpful hints.
Pixel Starships is an adorable little space sim that's been picking up steam the past week or so, and for good reason. It's very much like a cuter version of FTL, with plenty of fun mechanics to offer players that you may very well need a little help with, especially since there's a whole lot to pay attention to in-game. Hopefully these tips and tricks can help get you on the path to victory so you can keep your crew from dying, or at least a little less often. A few space deaths are probably okay from time to time. That's an occupational hazard, after all.
Fortify and build your ship up
You're nothing without a great ship to keep you afloat, so make sure you're spending time and resources to upgrade your ship. You can add resources to storage by finishing missions, gathering Minerals and Gas, and making sure you play as often as possible. When you can upgrade your resources, make sure you do so in order to be fortified against the enemies that come your way, so be prepared.
Manage your crew wisely
Your crew is essential to your survival, and you need to make sure you're keeping them happy (and alive.) Make sure you put your crewmen in essential rooms too, as just in case your rooms get damaged, they'll be able to repair them again for you. Make sure you've got a crew member in your reactor as well. It's imperative that you keep yours in good running condition. And don't be afraid to fire unwanted crewmembers if you suddenly find yourself with a surplus of them in the future.
Make the most out of all those extras
Sometimes you'll happen upon Starbux floating out in space on the main screen, so make sure you snap them up. Be aware that there are always achievement rewards for you to gather as well, by tapping on the trophy icon you can see at the top right corner of the screen. Make sure you collect every single bit of what's free out there because you never know when you're going to be able to use some of the resources at your disposal!
Renovate with care
Make sure you're building rooms and facilities with the good of your crew in mind. It may happen that you run out of room sometimes, too. You can actually take our your lifts in order to maximize the room you've got in your ship, but be careful that you're not jeopardizing your staff when they try to move around the ship.
