The Violet Sector is a FREE multi-player turn based game. Join a legion and battle against other players from all around the world for domination of the galaxy! Strategise and team up with friendly pilots to dominate sectors and hyper to new areas to beat the enemy.

It's simple to pick up and play at any time throughout the game time, and unlike many other similar games you're playing towards a goal - to destroy all enemies! We don't need to reset the game just to allow new players to catch up. The game will only start again when one side dominates!

You can play the game from any computer with internet access or your mobile phone.
