FPS Year Summary - 1997

Quake 2 would be a significant cash cow for id Software, its much-vaunted single player storyline would once again place the player in the shoes of a lone space marine against impossible odds. Technically, the game would add improved graphics and the ability to render colored lighting, allowing for much more dramatic graphic effects. id's ability to license its 3D game engines to other companies was a great source of revenue and lead to other similar ventures for the Lithtech and Unreal engines among others. Jedi Knight, unlike the first Dark Forces game, included a multiplayer mode, and after level three the player has the use of a lightsaber, along with The Force. It utilized FMV (Full-Motion Video) cutscenes in between gameplay, complete with live actors on digital backgrounds. Blood was one of a few games like Redneck Rampage that continued Duke Nukem 3D's humor and also expanded its adult content to include more graphic horror bloodletting and adult language for the hillbillies in the Cuss Pack for Redneck Rampage. Especially Postal, where you play a pyschopath on a shooting rampage, got banned in a lot of places but it was looking for controversy as a way to get free publicity.

Outlaws was the first western FPS with cowboys using old six-shooter type guns and rifles. Even though it was done by LucasArts it wasn't a hit and the western genre has not been used very often as players tend to prefer modern or futuristic weapons that do more damage. MDK was a TPS (third-person shooter) that brought about the first sniper mode, although you had to stand still to use it. A lot of FPS games now use it, and for those who can master the weapon it can frustate other players who get killed by headshots without knowing where the shot is coming from. Goldeneye 007 proved that it was possible to create a fun FPS experience on a console. The first landmark, best-selling console first-person shooter was based on the James Bond film and released on the Nintendo 64. Highly acclaimed for its atmospheric single-player levels and well designed multiplayer maps, it featured the ability to aim at a precise spot on the screen, a sniper rifle, the ability to perform headshots, and the incorporation of stealth elements. It served to popularize the genre to a different audience than had experienced it before. It put you in to a 3D environment with (somewhat) realistic situations. Enemies could see and hear you, they could also hit alarms, security cameras could catch you on tape, allies could run with you, you could shoot locks off of doors, destroy parts of environments for fun and to solve missions, all while breaking through an intricate story. For PC players, you can use an emulator to play the Nintendo 64 rom or there have been several attempts by mod creators to bring the game to a more modern engine (e.g. Goldeneye Source for Half-Life 2).

Turok was another console shooter on Nintendo 64 that was a dinosaur shooter - a theme that comes up in FPS games once in awhile. The PC version was ported 9 months later and suffers from limitations not used to on pc's like only being able to save game progress at certain places and a fog at limits of viewable level which were necessary because the weaker console hardware could not render large levels all at once. PC players often complain of console ports because they do not use the full power of the computer's capability. Resident Evil was the beginning of one of the most popular game series ever. It took the survival horror genre first popularized with the Alone In The Dark series and mixed it with a zombie shooter. Unlike run-and-gun FPS games, you often have limited ammo and may have to avoid enemies at times rather than shoot everything in sight. It took over a year and a half before the Playstation hit was ported to the PC which was common for "exclusive" console games that were used to popularize and sell more of the hardware machines.

Alien Cabal QASoft [top]

Aliens are for a long time among us. Under the town is found a big alien complex in which a virus was developed with which the population of the town could be erased out. It's argued for a strong military counterblow, however, this plan is given up. One needs one man's arms, a man who can deal with every situation and has experience. The mission is simple. One must find the entrance to the alien complex and liquidate all aliens. And one may not be deceived by the alien tricks.

Amulets & Armor United Game Artists [top]

This is a mission-based role-playing game that was two years in development. The player chooses his character between 11 default characters: Warrior, Paladin, Rogue, Mercenary, Sailor, Magician, Priest, Citizen, Mage, Warlock, Archer. The game comes with a number of missions of varying difficulty levels that the player can take in unrestricted order or repeat them. They each have four to five chapters, in which the player basically explores a dungeon, kills a lot of enemies, grabs some new loot, and finds the exit. The game comes in full, textured 3D, and the engine does allow the player to go 'up and down', as in over a spot where you were before. Enemies and items in the game are 2D sprites. Combat is action-based. The game graphics are in 256 colour VGA 320x200 resolution, and probably uses the FPS engine used for Doom as it uses a wad structure for its maps. It remained generally unknown until it was released by abandonware webpages. The features of the game include varied character class selection, the magic system, the character advancement and inventory system, musical score (both CD quality and MIDI versions of the music were available on the disc), and detailed level construction. It has hundreds of items, dozens of different monsters, an innovative spell-casting system with hundreds of spells, and 4 player cooperative or death-match play. There are many unused monsters and objects left in the code, such as a wolf, a banshee and even a deer which can be killed for food! In 2013, the game was released as freeware that also adds a few new features designed to improve playability.

Android T. Habersack [top]

The hero is James Steel, member of the Interstellar Alliance Army (IAA). For years, the IAA has had to deal with a rebel organization called "Androids". They are an entire army of robots. In their mothership, the cruiser "Revenge", they have caused some disruption in some galaxies. But they have never been considered a real threat. Until now. One of our secret bases intercepted a message. It would seem that ANDROID has made a new kind of droid, called the AW-3000. The AW-3000 is the most advanced android ever. The AW standing for Advanced Weaponry, the AW-3000 has Titanium armor, 1 lazer cannon arm, and some other types of weapons we've never even heard of. The IAA wants you to go and snuff out the AW-3000. Armed with the latest in weapon technology, including the V-10. The V-10 are glasses you wear that give you your health status, inventory, weapon type, etc. As you finish getting your gear on board your ship, you begin to wonder if you will be coming back, ALIVE. Upon exiting hyperspace, your scanners quickly warn you of an enemy ship. A big enemy ship. Knowing you could never win against those odds, you quickly turn your ship around and hightail it home. But before you can get underway, your ship is caught in a tractor beam. Your ship is quickly boarded and you are taken captive. When the interrogator droid learns what your mission is, you are quickly transported to the mothership, "Revenge"! As they usher you down the seemingly endless prison corridors, you wonder if you will ever be coming out of there again. You have various weapons, including a Stun Gun, and a Rocket Launcher. Filled with secret passages, this game requires you to use your brain as well as your ability to walk around and blast all the androids in sight!! This shareware game was made with Pie 3D Game Creation System and the registered version has 35 levels.

Angst: Rahz's Revenge ManMachine Games / The Learning Company [top]

In this German game, one plays as Werner M|ller, a sysop with GIC's data bank in Futura City. You're awakened by an explosion and go shortly after into a mammoth battle. The style of the game is a mixture of architecture from the end of 19th century (around 1890) and a science fiction story. There's not much fun to be had in this...

Blood (Horror 3D) Monolith / GT Interactive [top]

Almost at the same time that Shadow Warrior appeared, Blood also came out, and likewise was built on the Duke 3D Build engine. You are Cabal, a former supreme commander of a cult called "The Cabal", worshippers of the forgotten god Tchernobog - who has betrayed and killed you. You rise from the grave garbed in a black trenchcoat and broad-brimmed hat with glowing red eyes, spouting the phrase "I live....again.", and seeking vengeance and answers. There are many references to horror movies & literature, such as in the level "Crystal lake" you can find several locations from the Friday The 13th. A room from the movie Seven, and references to H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe stories also exist. The environment is fully interactive, with moving floors and active vehicles. Destruction of landscapes is possible, and bullet holes being left by misplaced shots. The Build engine is 2.5D, so there are rooms above rooms and puzzles which are based on this. The mood is more serious here, though you to get to kick your dead enemy's heads around like they were soccer balls, and the gags are not so frequent and also more subtle. Fans of horror films will really enjoy this fun romp. There is blood here also plentifully. One can shoot enemies with the flare gun and set them on fire who then run burning around the area. There is a mix of firearms, including a sawed-off shotgun and a Tommy gun, explosive weapons like a napalm launcher, a sci-fi shock rifle named after inventor Nikola Tesla and several dark magic artifacts, including a Voodoo doll. They have a secondary attack mode which makes them more interesting. Blood, to me, is a little bit more fun than Shadow Warrior and for some reason all games on the Build engine seem to have fun qualities.

Chasm: The Rift Action Forms / GT Interactive [top]

This is an early game from the Ukranian developer which later made the Carnivores series. The player takes on the role of an unnamed Marine whose mission is to stop the so-called Time Strikers, mutant beings invading different time epochs, from taking over the earth. On this mission, he visits places ranging from military bases in the present to Pharaonic tombs in ancient Egypt. All of the levels involve dark corridors, often like that of catacombs and crypts. This has similar graphics to Quake 1, but is not as good. There's 16 large levels. It has inventive bad guys and weapons, and boss creatures that require thought to kill. With opponents, also single body parts can be shot. There are briefings before the missions. Rain and flying leaves provide for more atmosphere, but still the game is rather boring. The retail CD includes a level editor for the creation of custom maps. Chasm can also be edited using the Doom WAD editor XWE. An official addon adds three new levels along with new monsters and is available as a free download from the developer's website.

Codename Tenka / LifeForce Tenka Distinctive Software / Psygnosis [top]

The sinister World Government building looms heavy over the desolate streets of New York. Rumours spread like wildfire, warning of genetic experimentation within its heavily secured walls. As Tenka, member of the militant resistance group Twisted Freak, it's up to you to infiltrate the World Government buildings and uncover the secrets that lie within. Using a totally 3D real-time environment Tenka features all the atmospheric lighting effects that the format has to offer and stretches those capabilities to the limit. Dozens of polygon-generated enemies to take on, a huge armoury to choose from ranging from automatic weapons and lasers to mini rocket launchers and homing missiles. It's a decent FPS game from Psygnosis that was more successful on the Playstation than PC. You are Joseph B. Tenka from Extrevius 328, a corporate conglomerate manufacturing plant for deadly warriors, known only as Bionoids. Tenka has been listed for transformation into a Bionoid, which is a half man - half droid, and that prospect does not please you at all. So you don a warfare suit and go off on a one-man quest to destroy corporate plans. The story is explained by some rather nice FMV cut scenes throughout the game. The gameplay will be familiar to anyone who has played DOOM and countless clones. Set over 20 stages, each level in the game is mission-based, and your mission is given in a nice briefing accompanied by a graphical display of your objectives. The game includes the usual array of high-tech weapons and a variety of Bionoids and other creatures to kill. Level design is average, but the creepy atmosphere is evoked pretty well through sound cues and surprise attacks. All in all, it's an enjoyable and atmospheric shooter that starts out like a DOOM clone, but makes you feel like an episode from Aliens.

Avalon Hill, popular publisher of board games, tried its hand at an FPS game with this mediocre combo of Descent and Quake. You are an elite fighter pilot selected to test out the new hovercraft LAV-6 SABER. As you complete a training mission for your commanders, suddenly the enemy attacks and you're on your own. There are "over 200 lines of spoken dialogue" on the game cd. Unique to the game at the time was the ability to "hop" around levels with limited thruster power. You'll have to use your thrusters to solve level puzzles (finding ledges and hopping chasms) and outmaneuver enemies, many of which are armed with t heir own ballistic and energy weapons. The enemy A.I. is a bit lacklustre.

Des Blood [J] Illusion [top]

The year is 2156. Tokyo has turned into a crime capital, where violence flourishes. Gang wars, murders, rape, and rampaging human clones, the replicants - this is how future looks like. But things get even worse. A meteorite-like object from space crashes into the ocean. The scientists find a woman inside the object - a beautiful, seductive alien woman who calls herself Hotaru. Before long all hell breaks loose, since Hotaru possesses extraordinary powers, and uses them to damage the inhabitants of the Earth. You take the role of a police officer in Tokyo Police Department, and you are the one who must solve the mystery and save your home. Des Blood opens the line of sex games by Illusion. It is a first-person "full motion video" adventure, similar in interface and navigation to graphical Zork games, but without puzzles and with pre-rendered 3D characters instead of real actors. In hostile areas, the game transforms into a shooter. You don't have freedom of movement; you have to target enemies who appear on the screen and kill them from where you stand. The sex scenes are shown as pre-rendered animated movies. In some of them you'll be able to make choices, such as different positions during sex.

It was created by the winner of the Total Entertainment Network's contest to develop the best independently designed and produced map levels for the original Duke 3D. In 2013, a Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition by Devolver Digital that included Duke Caribbean: Life's a Beach, Duke it out in D.C., and Duke: Nuclear Winter used a new engine that runs natively under new operating systems with enhanced OpenGL graphics.

Duke: Nuclear Winter WizardWorks, Creative Carnage / GT Interactive [top]

This time this mission pack takes place with Duke in the yule tide season. One shoots on new opponents such as snowmen and well-known enemies are now in changed outfits (Pig-Cops with Christmas caps, Enforcer with reindeer antlers, etc.). The first levels are familiar, even if there are changes and you start in different points than before. Later you'll find yourself in new levels which leave an ambivalent impression. Some are absolutely amusing, while others are frustrating and boredom spreads. The representation of the new opponents succeeds partially. Altogether though this pack is rather weak. In 2013, a Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition by Devolver Digital that included Duke Caribbean: Life's a Beach, Duke it out in D.C., and Duke: Nuclear Winter used a new engine that runs natively under new operating systems with enhanced OpenGL graphics.

Forbes Corporate Warrior Brooklyn Multimedia / Byron Preiss Multimedia [top]

This dull FPS game tie-in to Forbes magazine is set in a business environment and uses weapons with interesting names such as Price Bombs, Marketing Missiles, Head Hunters, and Takeover Torpedos. However in reality they are very similar as are the boring levels. A videophone at the bottom of the screen relays advice from your "business advisors" especially when you are not doing well, and there are many real-time events that spice up the action a bit - including a stock market crash, recessions, inflation, and natural disasters.

HACX Banjo Software [top]

HACX was a commercial total conversion for Doom 2 and was originally priced at $15. It has new opponents, sounds, graphics and weapons. The levels are large and well-done and one comes away from it impressed with the whole professional character of the whole endeavour. Eventually, the game was released as freeware for all to download and is highly recommended. A 1.2 update of the original Hacx was released on October 9, 2010. The changes included making it as a stand-alone IWAD recognized by Chocolate Doom, EDGE, Eternity, GZDoom and ZDoom, but still compatible with other source ports.

Henry Explorers / Crypt Killer Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo Co., Ltd. / Konami Co., Ltd. [top]

This is a horror-themed lightgun shooter that came out on PC only in Japan as Henry Explorers but is known in English as Crypt Killer where it came out on Playstation and Saturn consoles. As a tireless adventurer, you are looking for the "Eyes of Guidance", ancient crystals of mysterious power. To find them, you have to shoot your way through hordes of monsters. The game has six stages which can be taken on in any order. Each stage consists of four acts. The levels range from dark forests to deep caves, ancient crypts and underwater labyrinths. You move through the 3D levels on a predetermined path and shoot at skeletons, zombies, spiders, demons and other foul beasts. Your standard weapon is a shotgun, but you can gain additional weapons like gatling guns and grenade throwers. Some enemies throw projectiles like knives or bones at you, so be sure to aim at those as well. If the screen becomes too crowded, clear it with a smartbomb. At the end of some acts, you can choose from one of two paths through the next act, giving you different ways of completing a stage. At the end of each stage, a boss enemy awaits.

Hexen II: The Beginning Of The End RavenSoftware / Activision [top]

This uses a version of the Quake 1 engine. It's not as irritating as the original Hexen. You play a different hero's character and there are roleplaying aspects. Hexen 2 was one of the first (if not THE first) game in which originally 3D graphics map support was inserted. It features single player and multi player game modes, as well as four character classes to choose from, each with different abilities. These include the offensive Paladin, the defensive Crusader, the spellcasting Necromancer, and the stealthy Assassin. Improvements from Hexen and Quake include destructible environments, mounted weapons, and unique level up abilities. Like its predecessor, Hexen II also uses a hub system. These hubs are a number of interconnected levels; changes made in one level may have effects in another. Some of the early levels succeed really brilliantly and are fascinating with a lot of different textures which provide for diversity. Later the level-design has some low spots and after some hours playing time the degree of difficulty also clearly increases sometimes. Altogether Hexen 2 though is a successful game worth playing.

Hexmaker For Hexen II Virtus Corporation / Macmillan Digital Publishing / Ubisoft [top]

Hexmaker is a level editor designed specifically for Raven Software's Hexen II. The product pre-dates its Quake II cousin (Deathmatch Maker 2), but still offers an array of powerful editing tools and a library full of pre-made objects to use in your Hexen II maps. The interface and basic functionality is the same as in Deathmatch Maker 2, with drag-and-click editing and two design windows that provide 2-D wireframe and 3-D rendered views of your map. The textures and the artwork in Hexen II are more elaborate than those in Quake II, which makes it even more fun to create new levels using Raven's excellent art. Another benefit of Hexmaker is that the package includes 10 complete new Hexen II levels. Hexmaker runs on Windows 95 and requires a registered copy of Hexen II.

Last Rites Ocean [top]

Last Rites takes as its plot the basic zombies-taking-over-the-world scenario. Except that the apocalyptic event takes place in the future, thereby ensuring a supply of hi-tech weaponry with which to clobber the walking dead. Because that's exactly what you'll be doing. You play one of the survivors of the zombie plague, commander of a Special Forces unit given the task of ensuring humanity's survival. Helpfully, this task has been divided up into about thirteen missions, with different goals to be accomplished. Succeed, and humanity may yet survive. Fail, and you'll end up as a la carte zombie food. The sprites are all poorly animated and blocky, and the background graphics are poor. Let's take a couple of examples the city is made up of hundreds of repeated (and identical) building fronts, complete with windows and doors. Can you enter a single one of them? Nope. And at one point you enter a shopping centre ('mall' to Americans), a la Dawn of the Dead. Except it looks nothing like a shopping centre.. there are grey walls all around, no shopping related items or decorations to speak of.. it looks more like a car park.

From the Russian makers of the game Z.A.R. comes this mediocre game in the style of Descent. Humans are involved in an intergalactic conflict with aggressive aliens. You command a ship that makes it through a space battle and enters the enemy mothership at the start of the game. The first stage of the game is pre-rendered, but still interactive in "Rebel Assault"-style. Then you must fly or walk through the maze-like corridors destroying enemies and energy sources you encounter with the main reactor being your final goal. Tetratel offers a custom packaged version for their EyeFX 3D glasses. The game also supports speech recognition.

You take the role of some guy who must travel into the distant past, the year 1999, to confront Zaker and prevent the planet's doom. Also, you fight the Predator, boss of Satan World. And then in one day, the resistance who are resisting Skynet contacting Ji Yuan and want to he join. Player controls the protagonist Ji Yuan, who was a fighter of Skynet and after his parents (who are the chief scientist in Skynet) both got killed and he wants to find the truth out of what happened. But Skynet just stopped his investigations for no reasons, and made him suspect that he had done something related to the death of his parents. You kill enemies, get the keycards, blow shit up and go to the exit to next mission level. It has some cutscene texts and dialogues when the level starts and ends, it also has some NPCs/tip points in the level who tell you about something like the mission details or where you go/find some supplies.

Outlaws LucasArts [top]

This western shooter uses the Dark Forces engine. Marshall James Anderson had been a great gunfighter. He had worn the badge of the law and put men to death or to jail. But now he's retired; he got himself a wife, a daughter, and some land. The Gentleman, Bob Graham, has other plans for James Anderson's plot of land however. It sits right along some prime real estate for where the railroad is going to go, and whomever could own that land might be able to get rich setting up a town. So Bob, he's hired himself up some of the roughest and toughest ruffians west of the Mississippi to try and "persuade" Anderson and the other land-owners to sell or abandon their lands. James Anderson returns home from town one day to find his homestead aflame, his wife killed and his young'in abducted by the badguys. Not willing to trust in the fates, Anderson dusts off his six-shooter, digs up his buried shotgun and dons his old tin star. He's about to follow the trail of these men across deserts and valleys... until he finds his daughter. There are atmospheric cutscenes between levels, reloading your gun is important and the unusual western ambience provides for a fun game. The opponents are silly (as they were also in Dark Forces). For such a big company like LucasArts, it's disappointing that such an outdated engine was used, even if it supported now rather high resolutions. There is a Direct3D patch that lets the game use slightly higher resolution and improved textures, as well as improved overall performance.

His single player missions are set in a Missouri wharf town, Spanish villa, and icy caves of the Rocky Mountains, where he has to capture leaders of the gangs. One of the missions is infiltrating behind enemy lines during the Civil War. Multiplayers levels are set in towns with great number of places to hide.

Quake II ID Software / Activision [top]

In this sequel, there are far improved graphics compared to the extremely popular first game. This is more oriented towards a single player experience (netplay disappointed at first but this was improved through numerous Mods - Weapon Factory, Team Fortress, Action Quake 2 and more). The Strogg alien race threatens the Earth, but Earth has launched a counter-offensive, Operation Alien Overlord. Overlord takes the battle to the Strogg homeworld with the ultimate objective of securing their capitol city and killing their ruler. As a FPS, Quake II contains a variety of weapons including the fall back Blaster, the Railgun, and the secret BFG10K. The player is given mission-based objectives that correspond to the storyline. For example, the player carries out a wide range of activities, including stealing a tank commander's head to open a door, or calling down an air-strike on a bunker. CGI cutscenes are used to illustrate the player's progress through the various main objectives. The game features much larger levels than Quake, with many more wide-open areas. There is also a hub system that allows the player to travel back and forth between levels. Indeed, this is sometimes necessary to complete certain objectives. There are fair degrees of difficulty, and it's never too irritating. With the excellent soundtrack in the CD disk drive it added to a lot of fun for me. Because the prevailing orange-yellow of the graphics, it reminded me of Dune (and I like the film and love the books). Quake 2, even if it hadn't been a massive hit, got ID software huge profits just through multiple licensing of the game engine.

Quake MissionPack 1: Scourge Of Armagon (The Rift) Hiptonic (Ritual) / Activision [top]

This is the first official Quake mission pack. The textures have barely changed. There are new weapons (Proxi-mine thrower, laser gun, Thor's hammer) and some new opponents. The levels became bigger and some are also really pretty to look at, the Cathedral level is one of my favorites. The small Gremlins are the most interesting new kind of opponent. They steal from the player their weapon (a Gremlin with a bazooka or a Nailgun looks impressive indeed) and uses them promptly against the player. Also from their corpses are created new Gremlins. Sometimes one hears behind himself rustling and bumping, a sure sign that the small enemies in the work are soon to arrive. For single players the mode is much better than in the original Quake. This mission CD provides for some good playing fun without frustration. Because it also brings new multiplayer levels, it is also very good just for the extra modes.

Quake MissionPack 2: Dissolution Of Eternity Rogue / Activision [top]

This is the second and last official mission pack for Quake. This time there is more action. Only some weapons of the original were modified. New ones include: "lava nail" gun, "Multi-Grenade" launcher and the "plasma gun". The level design is not so creative as in "Scourge Of Armagon" but is nevertheless quite good. Both episodes have an essentially darker atmosphere. It goes, among other places, by Egyptian pyramids and their new opponents like statues which lie in wait and awake in contact with the living. The new multiplayer-modes "Capture the Flag" (to which there is here only one level) were available before already in similar form in the Internet.

Quake Total Conversion: Malice Epochalypse, Quantum Axcess [top]

This total conversion has completely new graphics and numerous cutscenes (with in-game graphics). One gets the impression of a totally new game. Barely some things will remind you of Quake. The style makes Malice a lot of fun, however, some places are also frustrating due to design mistakes. In the future, only the biggest companies have survived. In your town there are two of these firms. Both have each built their own army and spies to go after their rival. There are no police anymore. You work for B.O.S.S. which is one of these firms. Killing others to reach your purpose is of no consequence. Their missions are to infiltrat, kill, steal... because everything is done for money and B.O.S.S. pays well. The new opponents are professionally done and mostly are other people. Hostile organizations, however, also have Mechs and monsters. Reloading now becomes essential with almost all weapons. Indeed there are 3 different degrees of difficulty, but they must be changed from the console and the setting lasts only one for the length of one level. That's why Malice is to be recommended for rather experienced Quake players mostly because on account of the "normal" degree of difficulty only experienced players will be able to get through without having to resort to using Cheats. Some nice extras were also integrated, as for example the Hoverboard - a flying probe with which one can explore unknown terrain, a parachute and ... a mini submarine! Unfortunately, all these things disappear at the end of every level which is again what damages the fun really very much (and also needlessly).

Quake Total Conversion: Shrak Quantum Axcess [top]

This is a Quake conversion with partially new graphics, new weapons and tools like a lightstick, grappling hook and similar ones. There are new opponents, like the flying eye that expels energy flashes (and this still acts after bring shot down and remains dangerous therefore). However, some opponents look rather weak. At beginning there are levels with numerous traps which irritates. A key is obtained, a switch is operated and new opponents from behind quickly appear.... However, later on Shrak becomes better and more playable. There is also a new multiplayer procedure.

Quake Total Conversion: X-Men - The Ravages Of Apocalypse Zero Gravity / WizardWorks [top]

Something reminds the player in this total conversion of the ambience of Malice. A villain has succeeded in cloning the X-Men, so that they defeat the majority of their opponents. One starts in the center of the X-Men which is empty. One can enter the command area, libraries and something more. As typical with Quake, one finds doors or entrances to the different degrees of difficulty. When one hops through the tele-port, the real game begins. The opponents are better animated than in Shrak, but worse than with Malice and also do not look completely so good. Animation of your own weapons, especially with the new ones is well done though. Your character will have totally new ones, morphed into a new appearance. The shooting effects are similarly orginal. A shotgun, MG, super-mg and more including a flamethrower are also included. If you holds on to an opponent you can see the glowing skeleton underneath which looks quite cool. And whoever does not want to see it, can just shoot everything out of the way... I have played only the 1 level demo, for approx. 20 minutes which wasn't much. The full version promises 18 further levels. This started out as a Quake fan-mod and when Marvel itself got wind of this project, instead of nixing it they decided to give the mod team a way to make a full commercial Quake expansion pack. This was made freeware on Sep 22/2005.

Quake: Future vs Fantasy FreeForm Interactive [top]

This started out as one of the most popular Quake gameplay mods. It has both a single player and multi-player game (deathmatch and co-op). It's a role-playing game (RPG) that gives everyone a chance to experience a style of character that best suited them. You are allowed to select your character type, or class, from a cast of generic characters that range from magical fantasy: mages, fighters, etc. and sci-fi future: laser androids, cyborgs, etc. The original Quake character is a selectable class, left unaltered, and is classified as future. There are also 2 hidden classes, the Doom Mariner and Time Traveller. Also in Purge mode there is a Diety class. Each class has an entirely different set of weapons and abilities, thus FvF has 80 different weapons overall. For example, the Ninja is quick, silent, and has several techniques for escaping including teleportation. Players can use him to assassinate particular key opponents or scouting and is well suited for the type of player who enjoys these kinds of activities. However, overall, a Ninja’s weapons are not the most powerful but in the hands of a seasoned gamer can be formidable indeed. On the other hand, a Cyborg Camper is big and clunky but has powerful ranged weapons that are great for destroying larger groups of people (we know how they like to just stand there and twiddle their thumbs). It has very little finesse but for people who are “finesseless”, it is a perfect character. Aside from the standard Deathmatch, there was Purge (a two-team battle game with CTF-like elements) and Quest (a coop variation where the classes must work together to take on the tougher-than-usual monsters). With version 4.0 of the mod it became a commercial shareware download for $10. Currently, there's v2.0917 server running that has some improvements made with v4.0 source.

Quiver ADvertainment Software / ESD Games [top]

It won't make you quake but it will make you quiver. Players will encounter many aliens in the 3 level playable demo from ESD Games. The objective is to recover orbs which the aliens have stolen. Medical kits and other power ups are scattered throughout the game to aid the player. Weapon types include spikers, alien rippers, shredders, fajita makers, and more. Several difficulty levels are also available. The full version offers 27 levels, but for real I've never seen the real registered version even not for sale. The shareware version was very popular.

Rebel Moon Rising Fenris Wolf / GT Interactive [top]

Rebel Moon Rising places you as a Lunar Resistance soldier trying to prevent Earth from thwarting your attempts at rebellion, and the game's twenty-one single player missions takes place in a variety of alien landscapes (sometimes literally so as the game progresses). The lighting is excellent, and the game uses 16-bit color (which gives it the only noticeable advantage over non-MMX titles), and framerates are quite good at 640x480, though barely tolerable at 800x600 on a 200MHz MMX Pentium. Strictly speaking, aside from the assorted bits of eye candy, there's nothing technically impressive about the game, though it is quite good looking overall. Heavy hardware requirements aside, Rebel Moon Rising is behind the time technically speaking, but fans of the Marathon games will be right at home in this one and when taken from that perspective it's not a bad choice for something a little different in the first person shooter field. It has recognition of speech commands, and variable gravity on the maps in both multiplayer mode and singleplayer which is revolutionary for the time.

Redneck Rampage Xatrix / Interplay [top]

After extraterrestrials have stolen your favorite grown breeding pig, you take the role of the hillbilly brothers Leonard and Bubba and search for it through the town of Hickston. The game goes through farms and suburbs and constantly around you are insects, pigs and chickens, while one argues with the extraterrestrial - or which way to go. The degree of difficulty is high in parts and the opponents are tenacious and have impressive fire power. Numerous gags were inserted but aren't as funny as in Duke Nukem 3D. The same graphics engine is used. Levels range from trailer parks to chicken processing plants, and the arsenal of odd weapons include a gun that shoots circular saws, a TNT crossbow, and even a machine gun bra. There are no first-aid boxes to restore health, instead to restore your horizontal damage bar you need pork rinds or a bottle of "cheap-ass whisky " - but if one drinks too much of it, the game gets more difficult, because the view decreases and the movements (control) becomes more sluggish. The more food the character eats, the more flatulent he becomes, making it difficult to sneak up on enemies as the character would move forward and make a distinct fart sound frequently after eating. The Psychobilly music from the game is also playable in a standard music CD Player.
Under the titles Redneck Rampage - "Possum Bayoo" and "The Early Years" appeared a kind of OEM version in which only the first episode was contained.

Redneck Rampage: Cusspack Xatrix / Interplay [top]

Redneck Rampage Cusspack is (for adults only) a sound Addon made by Xatrix. It was available for download at Interplay's online store, but users had to pay $1 with a credit card to ensure that the buyer of the add-on was of adult age. Instead of the familiar sayings like "I'm gonna get ya" after the installation of the Cusspack, a little more crude things such as "I'm gonna fuck ya" are heard.

In this mission pack for Redneck Rampage, there are 12 new levels straight through the USA, past all places of interest which the land has to offer. You'll visit places like Big Bertha's Truck Haven and Shooting Range, Big Billy's World Famous Gut Busting Brewery, World's Smelliest Flea Market, the Slaughterhouse and Meat Packing Plant, and Billy Bob's Mini Golf and Fun Park. Other "vacation" spots feature Campy Crystal Lake, Mystery Dinosaur Cave and Pet Coffin Factory, the Hoover Dam, a House of Ill Repute, the Oddity Museum and Alien Crash Site, and an RV Show and Bigfoot Convention. But beware! The aliens are out for revenge and have cloned various people along Leonard and Bubba's stops to put an end to the dippity duo. Players will travel through a bus station, visit the Grand O'Opry, the Bronx Zoo, and more as they discover four secret levels filled with tourists and hostile forces.

Shadow Warrior (Ninja Master) / Shadow Warrior Classic 3DRealms / GT Interactive [top]

Another Duke 3D Build engine game which is a rather difficult 3D-shooter. There are diverse missions, and incredibly a lot of splashing blood and body parts, as well as some puzzles. One plays as Lo Wang, a master ninja assassin, whose master is murdered and whom you might avenge. There are many cool sayings and numerous gags let you know that Duke Nukem 3D not only provided the engine but counted as a model too. Your foes are drawn in the Manga style such as mostly quite naked but well armed women. The Build engine's improvements included introduction of true room-over-room situations, the use of voxels instead of sprites for weapons and usable inventory items, transparent water, climbable ladders, and assorted vehicles to drive (some armed with weapons). The arsenal of weaponry includes Japanese-themed weapons such as Shurikens and a Katana. It also includes guns such as Uzis and the Eraser-inspired railgun. In addition, the head and heart of certain enemies can be used. It does not approach the greatness for me of Duke, however it is still a lot of fun. Disappointingly the game was not a commercial success and official planned mission packs ended up being cancelled. However, years later, the work that was done on these extra levels was released as freeware. On May/2013, the main game was released for free on Steam. On July/2013, Shadow Warrior Classic Redux was released including both expansion packs with improved, OpenGL graphics and visuals, remastered audio and modern PC compatibility.

Smuta is the sequel of the russian game Dungeons Of Kremlin with similar Doom-style graphics. It's on the same engine, but a little different on the gameplay and graphics from its predecessor. You need to run the underground firing at the undead and others with weapons such as the poleax, and usual guns. There are many diverse adversaries: archers with hammers, boyars spitting some crap, and others. The passage is very complex.

Star Trek: Generations Spectrum Holobyte / Microprose [top]

Generations was the 7th Star Trek film, and saw Captain Kirk rescued from the wormhole he was trapped in and joining the Next Generation crew. Their mission was to stop Dr. Tolian Soran from destroying a succession of planets, so as to return him to a paradise-like dimension called the Nexus. All of this is brought to life in this game, with a succession of 12 away missions on various planets linked by strategic space combat, and Stellar Cartography planning to track Soran's next move. Away missions are in first-person 3D and feature action and puzzle solving. Each is played out by a different member of the crew, all of whom have their voices digitised. Some sub-plot elements and related video sequences from the stars (Patrick Stewart, William Shatner and Malcolm McDowell) are not in the film and have been added to the game.

Star Wars: Jedi Knight - Dark Forces II LucasArts [top]

Essentially a first-person shooter made to compete with the likes of Quake 2, JK tries to separate itself from the pack early on by capitalizing on the Star Wars theme. Utilizing FMV (Full-Motion Video) cut scenes in between gameplay, complete with live actors on digital backgrounds, JK includes something most Doom clones forget, an actual plot! Stages coincide with the plot accordingly and revolve heavily around the objectives which is refreshing from the usual find the keys and exit theme. Players journey through the stages in the role of Kyle Katarn (think Han Solo wanna-be with sprinkles of Luke Skywalker), who must learn the ways of the force and frag all enemies along the way. Unlike the first game, this one includes a multiplayer mode, and after level three the player has the use of a lightsaber, along with The Force. The lightsaber blocks weapons fire, is an effective weapon and provides light in dark areas. There are three types of Force powers: Light Force powers provide non violent advantages such as being able to restore health or persuade enemies to ignore the player, Dark Force powers are violent and give the ability to throw objects or choke enemies, Neutral powers enhance athletic abilities such as being able to jump higher or run faster. There are twelve powers in total, four of each type. Between levels, the player can choose which Force powers to enhance. There are a variety of hostile and non-hostile non-player characters (NPCs) within each level that the player can interact with. Other enemies include monsters and vehicles. Throw in all the elements like 3D accelerated graphics, Star Wars setting, John Williams composed soundtrack, and refreshing plot-oriented missions and you get a sure-fire winner, right? Close, but JK fumbles a little along the journey to being a true master. It's not that the game's execution is poor, but it isn't really that revolutionary either. Take for example, the stage designs. While the sci-fi look is there and the environments seem natural at first, but after prolonged play, stages drag on way too long and it's clear that the level designers start to draw out the stages with too many obstacles and puzzles for the sake of play-life. It's a shame because the game is most effective when you can lose yourself in the fantasy environments that are convincingly realistic. Once you start getting frustrated by the lengthy design, it breaks that suspension of disbelief and you're all too aware of the contrived stage.

Tremor for Quake Head Games [top]

The company that compiled this collection of over 1,000 fan-made levels, the now-defunct Head Games, was strongly criticized for including the levels without the makers' permission. It's an add-on disk with never before seen maps and over 400 modified map and bsp files. No id textures are used when the bsp's are run, new textures were included. There are deathmatch and single player maps included in the game. It has a DOS game level launcher and a Windows 95 game launcher and ping time tester. The WIN95 menu also has a ping time tester to check out the servers before you play a deathmatch. You can stack any level that has an exit.

Turok: The Dinosaur Hunter Iguana Entertainment, Sculptured Software / Acclaim [top]

The Campaigner might take over the universe and in addition uses numerous biogenetically manipulated dinos, drones and of course also human assistants. Turok, a mighty Indian warrior, wants to prevent this. It's loosely based on the comic book. So you take the role of this figure on a search for the individual parts of a weapon - the Chronoscepters - which with its help one hopes to destroy the Campaigner. One can enter each level over and over again, but a key is needed to be able to open a new level. Turok can climb up precipitous walls, while he uses his knife as a climbing help. One can also swim and must jump a lot. Besides the knife, one can use a bow with which one can also use explosive arrows (which are used up quickly though and often run out). Also a pistol and a shotgun are among your weaponry. The opponents are animated all extremely well and make it quite fun (presuming one does not have the German version). The scenery is enjoyable and varied, harmless animals sometimes also graze nearby which leave crosses if one fires at them which can be used to increase health for Turok. The graphics are quick and successfully capture the tropical atmosphere, even if one will never find himself in a thick jungle. Unfortunately, in Turok there is no quick save game ability. As with the N64 model, one can save only at certain places which spoils the game fun for me substantially. This is doubly damaging, because also the different endlevel bosses are astonishing and the whole ambience is pleasing. For patient players Turok may be something enjoyable, but on account of the save function I have never played through the entire game.

Third Person Shooters

3D Hero / Sanguo Zhi: Shuhan Yingxiongchuan [Tw] Engine Technology / Soft-World International [top]

This is the second game from the undisputed leader of the Taiwan 3D games of the 90s (who also made Mars 3D and Tao) and this game is dedicated to the Three Kingdoms poetic era. The game is made as in the genre of RPG, but if you look closely, the classical concept of a Build engine-shooter was impossible to hide. These were periods (3rd century A.D.) of wars and civil strife in China, when the ideals of generosity, disinterested friendship and loyalty were in high demand in society. You can choose one of six characters one of which is a girl. They are all army warriors of Liu Bei. Each of the characters has its own set of individual parameters: health (生命力), endurance (防御力), magic (法力), and attack force (攻击力), wearing a weapon (武器), and dexterity (敏捷). Of wearable weapons everyone prefers something different: a sword, a spear or bow. An interesting feature of the game is that it transitions between the levels set right on the map of China, where each level corresponds to an actually existing ancient city. There are 14 levels in all. Depending on the results of your playing, the game can end in different versions: in the north of the kingdom of Wei (ruler - cruel Cao Cao) or the south-east - in the realm of W. Two levels (5 and 6) are located on the banks of the Yangtze, which by the way, suggests to us the crucial Battle of Red Cliff. Weapons are presented as various bunches of fire and other mysterious substances. Then there is the all-round light, and borrowed from the Shadow Warrior 'and the wall of napalm and stun discharges. Keys may be at the level of three and the maps are spacious.

Advanced Netwars Caldera [top]

Whereas the original NetWars was developed by Novell to be bundled with their Personal NetWare program to show off NetWare's IPX capabilities, this update with more advanced graphics and new features was released with OpenDOS. It added support for SoundBlaster sound, Joystick control, up to six players in multi-player mode, missiles and computer-controlled ships in multi-player mode, and it featured a new multi-player shoot-out mode, an improved single-player mode, an external view mode, as well as a shape editor to design own space-ships. The main idea of Advanced NetWars is much like the original: you are placed in the cockpit of a space fighter and sent out into the vast reaches of space to shoot down your enemies or be killed yourself. You are given plasma guns, missiles, and turbo boosters to help you on your mission. Your 3D radar is also very important to you, as it shows where other fighters are relative to your position, but also how far "above" or "below" you they are.

This is a pretty good combo of various game types all in one game as you play a man who crashes on an alien planet. First there's a rail shooter section as you jump on a speed bike to help out an alien being chased by robots. There are multiple paths and FMV's to discover. Then there's a 3d action adventure section in 3rd person as you break into the robots camp in order to help the alien's cause so they can fix your spaceship. Then you go on a small hovercraft through tunnels avoiding obstacles and shooting enemies. All in all, there's a variety of fun to be had from this game.

Battlesport 3DO Company, The / Acclaim Entertainment, Inc. [top]

Battlesport simulates the sport of the future. Choose your vehicle and enter the arena to face your computer opponents to see who scores the most goals before the clock runs out. Scoring isn't easy. The ball constantly bounces over the arena, retrieved by a player constantly bombarded by opponents. A variety of weapons are available to shoot your competitor, and anyone that takes a hit while carrying the ball loses possession, sending the ball bouncing across the arena. Taking too many shots results in a temporary inability to take part in the action while your opponent happily scores goals. Winning matches increases standing in the rankings and the acquisition of cash to purchase a better vehicle and enhanced offensive or defensive items.

BattleTech: Solaris, MultiPlayer Kesmai Studios / Aries Online Games [top]

This version of the multiplayer BattleTech computer game was available on AOL, and on Kesmai's (later named GameStorm) game service between 1996 and 2001. At its height on the AOL server, thousands of players competed simultaneously in arenas of two to eight participants, battling in team games or free-for-alls. After AOL initiated its hourly pay-for-play system, the majority of players moved to the GameStorm service, which operated for a number of years until its purchase by Electronic Arts. uring its run, the game's player-driven community grouped themselves into armies representing the various Successor States, or independent stables, or mercenary units. Though the in-game software did not support official groups, the player-driven units became close-knit communities, even after the games cancellation in 2001. The game can be considered a follow-up to Multiplayer BattleTech: EGA; it was in in turn succeeded by Multiplayer BattleTech 3025. One of the great features of Solaris (Solaris is the planet where battles take place) is that it's lean and mean: Log on to a Solaris provider and choose a handle, and you can be in the thick of combat a few minutes later. Just decide on whether you want to practice or fight sanctioned matches (which determine your ranking), then head to the appropriate arena, pick out a mech, and get ready for some major league destruction.

Bedlam 2: Absolute Bedlam Mirage Technologies (Multimedia) Ltd. / GT Interactive Software Corp. [top]

It is half a year after the happenings in Bedlam where Major Kern defeated evil biomechs. Now they are back under the name Biomex and have important facilities under their control. Of course this has the consequence that the player uses Major Kern's combat robot to kill them all. Bedlam 2: Absolute Bedlam is an isometric shooter where the player basically explores big levels and shoots everything on his way. The controls are not too complicated: left mouse click to move and right click to fire. When enemies are killed they leave extras behind like ammo, shield energy or money. The money is used to buy upgrades for the combat robot between the 30 missions.

You can pull on the reins to slow down. The six tracks are filled with shortcuts and power-up items, such as missiles and bombs to blast away your opponents.

Carmageddon Stainless Software Ltd. / SCi Games Ltd., Interplay Entertainment Corp. [top]

Motorized carnage inspired by the 1975 cult classic movie Death Race 2000. Ever wanted to hit pedestrians during a race? Now's your chance. Carmageddon is an ultra-violent racing game which caused much controversy during the '90s but was also very popular due to its fun factor. It was also one of the first batch of games to make use of 3D accelerated graphics (using OpenGL and 3dfx Voodoo cards). Pit your wits and wheels against 25 other demented maniacs over 36 racing circuits in 5 totally different environments, in your quest to become King of Carnage and Prince of the Pile-up! Pedestrians equal points in Carmageddon, which is more than just your average driving game. Not even farmyard animals are safe as you slam on your hand brake and spin into a cow-mincing frenzy. Destroy other contestants' vehicles on the track and win credits, depending on the extent of the damage inflicted. Exchange your credits for automatic damage repair, or for better and more deadly features. Alternatively, you can "hard shoulder" your opponent, leave your twisted smoldering wreck at the curb, and steal the other driver's vehicle--now that's part exchange with a difference! The game was only given a release in the UK after a palette change, converting the humans into 'zombies' with green blood (There were also 'zombie' cows, etc). Later, a patch was released, restoring the original palette. The game was notable for its realistic and ground-breaking physics and for its in-game movie making features. It was also one of the earliest examples of sandbox 3D driving games, and may have influenced other later games including Driver and the Grand Theft Auto series.

Carmageddon Splat Pack Stainless Software Ltd. / SCi Games Ltd. [top]

The Splat Pack is the official add-on for Carmageddon. It adds 20 new tracks, 15 new cars, new network levels and 3Dfx support, 9 new environments included a Medieval-themed tourist attraction, a prison next to a nuclear reactor, and a traditional racetrack. The final level is set in Hell, and at the very bottom Satan himself can be found. The player car also underwent small optical changes. It adds new characters with their own vehicles, but also gives new vehicles to some existing drivers (an example being Stig O'Sore). The player can choose one of two characters to play as in the game, but opponents vehicles can be 'stolen' and added to the players garage if certain criteria are met. All vehicles are unlocked for use at the end of the game. It requires the original Carmageddon CD to install, as it re-uses assets from that game: However it does not require Carmageddon to be installed, as it is created as a separate game (cars and tracks can not be exchanged between the two games without use of third-party mods such as tools). Splat Pack uses a DOS-Based installer.

D.O.G. Fight For Your Life Greenwood / THQ [top]

D.O.G. is just a simple 3rd person shooter with vehicles/turrets to use. The game doesn't have a story, you just select a mission that you can afford (you get money from completing missions), kill everyone/everything in it and continue to the next mission. The engine uses voxels, so you can blast the ground with few different weapons, like flamethrower, chaingun, grenade launcher and rocker launcher. Picking up powerups for yourself and your vehicle ease your way on the devastation.

DeathDrome Zipper Interactive / Viacom New Media [top]

Here's the setup: the year is 2057, and the world's prisons are teeming with vicious, condemned criminals. The Committee of Recreational Termination (CORT) has devised a lethal form of entertainment called DeathDrome, where lucky cons like you are given the chance to win freedom if you can survive three rounds of gladiatorial combat in each of the eight deadly domains. Pilot your vehicle, jump over things, pick up weapons, avoid mines, and kill before you get killed. The weapons are nicely chosen, including an oilslick-type force field that zaps the guys behind you, an arsenal of missiles, a “smart bomb” that kills everything within range, and, of course, a conventional laser cannon. DeathDrome was later picked up by SegaSoft's HEAT Network as a "free" online game, allowing players to experience this great mutiplayer game again.

Fighting Force Core Design / Eidos Interactive [top]

This is a decent PC port of a Playstation game of the same name, like a 3D version of the classic Double Dragon series. Given that it was designed by the same team that brought us Tomb Raider, Fighting Force should be a much better game. Instead, you get only an average "fighting beat-em-up" that offers banal gameplay and a flawed control system. The game boasts "a fully interactive city." This means that you can wield everyday objects such as trash cans and car tires as weapons. The game gives you four character choices, each with its own strengths. The typical array of punches, kicks, and grabs are here, as well as a character-specific special attack that clears out all the enemies around them at the cost of a little bit of their life bar.

Fortified Jurgen Egeling Computer / Assistant Publishing [top]

Your fortifications are the last strongholds for you planet. Aliens used to come only at night, but now as the war has progressed, they have increased their efforts to try and bring the human race to neo-genocide. Their intentions have been learned by the very few survivors: To abduct humans and use them for the manufactoring of their warcraft. Workers usually only survive a couple of months due to the inhalation of metalic dust and bacteria of their desert planet. Your final mission is to try to stop this full born attack of this modern barbaric species. Your surviving population uses the shrapnel from the destroyed ships to develop new weapons. You must keep your population to a maximum! Try to destroy the mother ships before they deploy their "metal children from hell". Destroy the stealers as fast as you can, to save your remaining population from a terrible fate. The combat ships try to destroy your guns with firepower. Avoid their shots and try to destroy them as fast as you can. When their combats ships first enter the atmosphere, they must adjust their flying stabalizers to maintain control of their aircraft. At this time they are most vulnerable. Shoot them when they group together, the explosion of one ship could take them all out. If the aliens manage to abduct the entire population from the planet they will destroy the planet to wipe all evidence of their treachery. The aliens come in waves of both increasing power and numbers. So keep your population and gun supply up. Don't waste shots! Get the bonuses when you can, and never let your guard down! Fight like this is your last battle - it may well be! There are 144 levels in Fortified, spread across the 4 scenarios. There are also 36 bonus levels within those scenes which are truly gut-splittingly funny. You start with a stationary cannon in a medieval castle, and you have to shoot down alien ships while gathering power-ups. It's basically a 2D game with fake 3D perspective for enemies and gun placement on screen, like Wolfenstein and DOOM, and 2D landscape like Moorhuhn.

G-Police Psygnosis [top]

In the years following the late 22nd century's great war for the solar system's resources, the governments of Earth are overthrown, and the entire planet is demilitarized by the megacorporations. It soon becomes apparent that some sort of independent law enforcement agency will be needed to keep the corporate moguls' greed and lust for power in check. Hence, the Government Police are created, and you, as Jeff Slater, war veteran and crack hovership pilot, are their newest recruit. This complex story, along with some bad blood between Slater and his new Commanding Officer, and a "searching for clues about his sister's mysterious death" subplot are enjoyable. The 35 missions are well executed enough to keep the action moving along. The enemies come in all shapes and sizes - aircraft, ground targets, people - and the cops-and-robbers feel of the missions adds an intriguing twist. You're never at a loss for weapons, either. As the level difficulty progresses from frustrating to downright ludicrous, your hovership can be outfitted with more and more powerful weapons. With support for nearly every hardware 3D accelerator on the market when the game was released, G-Police boasts fantastic particle-vapor and transparency effects, along with beautiful textures and sophisticated polygon modeling. The game's visuals are so stunning that it is arguably the most graphically beautiful 3D title on the market at the time.

Have a N.I.C.E. Day! / Axelerator Synetic GmbH / Magic Bytes [top]

This is a combat racing game with 3 different car leagues. The more races you win, the more money you earn. You can buy new weapons and extras. The graphic engine is simple; the whole terrain is "flat". The player begins his racing career at the very bottom in a Chevrolet Impala, and he must complete a series of races. It is not crucial to always being first - there is a point system, where the Formula 1 is similar. For each race won, the player gets money and a few pieces of the puzzle. With the money he can tune his car and buy some more or less useful gadgets. The pieces of the puzzle, the player can sit down and replace. If he completes the puzzle, he gets a cash bonus. Once the player from a racing series has emerged as the winner, he is promoted to the next class. The Chevrolet Impala is soon followed by the Ford Mustang , which is eventually replaced by a rocket-propelled car. In addition to the career mode, there is also the opportunity to dispute with another driver in a duel. If your own car is damaged, the player can use a repair kit that repairs the car by 20 percent. The routes are mostly of historical background, past pyramids of Egypt or those of the Aztecs. Each route is peppered with loops and ramps. Ramps should not be taken too fast, otherwise you could fly off the next curve through the guardrail. The curves are marked with different colors, for example, a red curve can be taken quickly, a blue one is slower and yellow forces you almost to a total standstill. The tuning shop has, in addition to the "normal" upgrade options (engine, suspension, etc.), some unusual parts to choose from. Apart from useful items such as guardrail guide and pool cleaner, there are nice accessories for the interior. These include a toilet roll for the rear shelf, a shift knob in the shape of a skull, as well as plush dice for the mirror. A handsaw and a victory cigar can be purchased to help, but not at the races. The weapons available are: Gatling Gun (Classic Machine Gun), Limpet mines (from the rear of the vehicle to be thrown onto the hood of the enemy, where they detonate), Oil thrower (make opponent slide), Nail Launcher (sets a carpet of nails on the roadway and impedes other drivers), Missiles (fly straight and detonate the target), EMP missiles (paralyzes the opponent's car), tire diameter (rips the enemy tires).

Incubation: The Wilderness Missions Blue Byte Studio GmbH [top]

This expansion pack covers the struggle of the team as they revisit the planet and go for a stroll in the country to check out the new scenery and blast familiar and new Scay'Ger alike into gruesome giblets. Wilderness also comes with a colorful comic book to open the story of the game. The game itself plays like the original except with more of everything. More guns, more Scay'Ger, more maps, more (and different) terrain, and more missions that are harder, with harder puzzles. It's that last aspect that may be the only real catch for the add-on. The missions start out much tougher than Incubation and get significantly harder as they go along. True, most missions can be navigated using problem solving skills and logic, however, others are less obvious. Features: 30 missions will take you through 3 new unforgiving worlds; 4 new selection of deadly weapons; 5 new varieties of bloodthirsty Scay'Ger; Create your own fiendishly clever worlds with the professional style level editor; 5 specially designed singleplayer levels; Challenge other squads in 25 specially designed multi-player levels or team up with friends against the Scay'Ger in the new cooperative mode; Up to 4 players can lead their own squads in a battle to the death on a LAN, over the Internet, on the same single PC or via play-by-mail (PBM) in the 9 specially designed multiplayer levels.

Interstate '76 Activision [top]

This driving/shooting game is set in the American southwest, in an alternate 1976 where the fuel shortage is out of control. Vigilantes cruise the tarmac, trying to protect the last gas stations from destruction by power hungry oil companies. The player assumes the role of Groove Champion who becomes a vigilante to avenge his sister's death. Under the tutelage of Taurus, he must single-handedly thwart Antonio Malochio, the dastardly villain behind the terrorist attacks. This fun game has souped-up muscle cars laden with firepower and a great soundtrack thick with slap-bass and wah-peddled guitars recalling the theme from Starsky and Hutch and the danger music from Charlie's Angels. The environments and vehicles, even on the lowest detail settings, are strikingly realistic. And the dialogue is, for the most part, great though the hero's comments during combat sound strangely out of place and get a bit repetitive. The driving simulation is also superb with suspension models, and the way your car handles off-road and under the strain of varying damage types. Ramming an enemy car and then jamming into reverse and blasting away while he struggles for control is truly exhilarating, and using the handbrake to spin 180 and take out some chump behind you is awesome. The game can be played in a straightforward, 17 mission campaign (labeled "The Trip") with wildly varying difficulty, or a series of individual scenarios. The missions themselves are great and really diverse: some follow a straightforward, "kill 'em all" directive; some require you to race opponents (usually followed by killing everyone you were racing against); and others simply require you to drive, under heavy opposition, from point A to point B with your vehicle in some semblance of shape. The maps are enormous, and you can drive for what seems like miles off the main course and still see buildings and other cars driving on the roads. You can only use one car except for the last level in The Trip campaign. There are dozens of vehicles in individual missions or in multiplayer skirmishes. There is actually a "Interstate '76 Gold Edition", which is the game with GLIDE and Rendition 3D support.

But blowing them to bits doesn't mean you're through; you've also got to take over their disabled robots and use their powers to wreak even more destruction. MACHINE HUNTER is an overhead Shooter, so you are able to use the buttons to shoot in any direction, which results in the game being a frantic shoot-‘em-up. 16 arenas with multiple layers, 10 classes of droids, 360 degrees of 3D rendered graphics, accumulate powers and abilities as game progresses, two-player playing modes.

Mageslayer Raven Software / GT Interactive [top]

From the makers of Hexen and Heretic comes this very fun dungeon hack type of game like the classic arcade game Gauntlet but more modern in a fully 3d world but similarly with an overhead view. You can choose from 1 of 4 characters (the hammer-wielding Earthlord, the hell-spawned Arch-Demon, the fireball-slingin' Warlock, and the busty Inquisitor). Each character has a close-up melee attack and a long-range projectile - and mastery of both is crucial in the game. On each level, it throws dozens of nasty monsters at you, triggering very furious (and bloody) fights that are very intense, and very addictive. Strategic elements are also present in the form of monster spawners, which you must kill to stop the endless hordes of the monsters. You can also use magical attacks, which are limited to the amount of mana on hand. Mana and other bonus items are scattered around the level, so dodging firefight while picking up goodies becomes a necessary tactic. Many goodies are hidden behind secret doors, especially the rarer kinds such as invisibility potions and proximity bombs. The game also includes puzzle elements in the form of switches and buttons you will need to find and activate. There are some jumping puzzles that require precise timing and coordination. Quick timing is also a must to dodge rotating gears and other dangerous equipment. Although the gameplay is derivative of Gauntlet, the graphics, as you can expect from a Raven game, is anything but outdated. You view the action from the top-down perspective similar to Take No Prisoners, but the world is in full 3D, with a constantly shifting perspective. Since the game is in true 3D, you will be able to drop down holes, ascend staircases, and ride elevators through all 28 multi-layered levels.

This time around, after the aliens have been dispatched, you find yourself part of an antiterrorist group. You (and a partner) must go through three levels loaded with bad guys just waiting to play catch with your bullets. The bad guys also fire back so you have to have a quick trigger finger, or else risk eating a bullet yourself. Throughout the levels you will be find power-ups that give you much-needed health or increase your weapon's power. This game is also filled with mini-games, so Shooter fans will be in gun-fighting heaven with MAXIMUM FORCE.

MDK (Murder Death Kill) Shiny / Interplay [top]

This game introduced the sniper mode. Actually, it's not an FPS because one sees Kurt Hectic, the game's hero, from the third person (from the back). However, in contrast to competitors like Tomb Raider, the designers made it so that the character's figure never covers the field of vision and thus doesn't lead to frustration. However historically valuable MDK is on account of the sniper mode which was used here for the first time (only while standing still, for the exact zoom function to work) and the 3D shooter scene was forever changed. The game tells the story of its protagonist, Kurt Hectic and his attempts to rescue Earth from an alien invasion of gigantic strip mining city-vehicles named 'Minecrawlers', which are not only removing all of earth's natural resources but are also flattening any people and cities that get in their way. The game combined fast action with fully 3D rendered, state-of-the-art (for the time) graphics and a warped sense of humour. In addition to the standard run-and-gun/sniper modes, there are a few mini-games in MDK. All levels start out with the atmospheric re-entry with Kurt skydiving from the Jim Dandy to the Minecrawler below. The Minecrawler fires a radar (a green cone) which if touched triggers the launch of anti-air missiles, which must be dodged. Dr. Hawkins also sends down weapons at this point which (if collected) are added to Kurt's level inventory. While some levels have a bombing run, boarding a glider and dropping iron bombs on enemies. This clears the enemies far easier than would be on foot and often garners extra weapons. There are also a few special game modes in different levels. One level has snowboarding sequences where Kurt must navigate obstacles while destroying enemies along the way. In another level, Kurt must disguise himself as a sentry robot to deceive guards.

Meat Puppet Playmates / Kronos Digital Entertainment [top]

In Meat Puppet, you play the role of Lotus Abstraction in a darkly futuristic post-apocalyptic world. Lotus responded to a personal ad claiming "help wanted for nocturnal missions". These "missions" turn out to be a far cry from what Lotus expected! As Lotus, your main quest besides performing the occasional kill is to discover the identity of your employer, who has deigned not to reveal himself, and free yourself from his mafia-style employment agreement. The isometric view has full screen scrolling, crazy-smart AI, and over a hundred opponents on screen at any moment. There are over 300 individual rooms spread over 6 cities to explore and fight through. Similar to Crusader, Meat Puppet is a fully interactive environment. Each level contains over 150 objects that can be used, manipulated or destroyed to suit your purpose. This means there are over 600 separate types of object in the game. Nothing is more fun than blowing up things, and Meat Puppet intends to indulge those tendancies.

Men In Black: The Game Gigawatt Studios / South Peak Int. [top]

In this badly reviewed game, based on the popular movie, you start out as the Will Smith character investigating a robbery as a detective and finding out first-hand about the alien presence on Earth. You then go to MiB headquarters and can play as the Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones or Linda Fiorentino characters. There are three new missions (unrelated to the film) with two sub-missions taking place in an Arctic weather station, the Amazon, and the estate of a computer expert who made a fortune at a young age manufacturing PCs (ahem...Bill Gates parody alert). Within each level, you'll have to find key cards, deactivate security systems, pick up idols, read messages and clues, solve puzzles, and battle aliens in the form of Manitobas, large bugs, spore frogs, and grays and even those appearing as humans. The deliberate movement and controls of the characters hamper the gameplay and the fighting and shooting don't come off very well but if you liked the movie, you might get some enjoyment out of it.

Nitro Racers The 3DO Company [top]

Practically an unknown race, which appeared in extremely limited edition. The concept of the game is amazing: race on very large machines in a cyberpunk future, with a view from above (that is, in about radio-controlled cars games). There are two game modes: arcade and simulation and there are three levels of difficulty: easy, medium and hard. But the main feature of the game, by which it got its name: nitro bonuses. These pieces can be collected during each race, they give at some time a huge acceleration, and can either be someone to catch up with and surpass or come off badly. Also worth noting, a wide variety of routes: to be not only the gloomy town, but also the jungle, snow, and desert...

No Respect Appeal / Ocean Software [top]

No Respect is a fun 3D action game where you play a mercenary who flies a futuristic hovercraft-style vehicle in a fight against other mercenaries. Your goal is to conquer 20 arenas in the game by simply killing all your other enemies. The 3D engine in No Respect is a very early version of the much more polished one that Appeal later used in Outcast. It produces very smooth animations with excellent details. Unfortunately, the gameplay is somewhat limited and bordering on repetitive, and the arenas are not as interesting as the ones in, say, Death Drome or Twisted Metal. That is not to say No Respect is a bad game, though. If you enjoyed Hover or Fury 3, you will probably also like this action game that's disguised as a sport game. Well worth a look especially as a beginning of the path Appeal embarked before creating the classic Outcast.

Panzer Dragoon SEGA Enterprises Ltd. / Expert Software, Inc. [top]

Panzer Dragoon is set in a distant oppressive future. The Dark Dragon needs to be destroyed, and you, Keil Fluge, are aboard a dragon and armed with a powerful weapon to do so. In this shooter, you ride an armored dragon on a predefined path with 360º of freedom (you can rotate and zoom in and out). This path takes you through an aquatic setting, through a tunnel and over a forest, and into combat with giant worms, wasps and flies. Each level ends with a boss. In a idea influenced by the film Blade Runner, cutscenes use a fusion language combining elements of German, Latin and Japanese. It's a fun 3D shoot 'em up game from SEGA (a PC port from the hit SEGA Saturn version), featuring multiple gameplay styles. Similar to Dragon Strike from Westwood/SSI years ago, it's 3D dragon-dogfights at its best. Your dragon can not only breath fire, but also has a homing laser (!) which is activated by holding down the fire button and will lock on up to eight targets automatically. There are three difficulty levels: easy, normal, and hard. The easy level only lets you play the first four levels, but your dragon can die many times (after which you can restart in the last level you just completed). The normal and hard levels give you limited arcade-style "credits" for continuing a game. Depending on how well you shoot, you will gain credits at the end of each level if you pass a required percentage threshold. The gameplay is similar to a typical "rail shooter," i.e. you battle enemies while your dragon flies on a predetermined path. Each level ends with a "boss" creature, whose hit points show up as a bar to let you know how close it is to dying (or not). If you like arcade-style games, Panzer Dragoon is fun enough and just unique enough to keep your interested, but compared to other classic SEGA titles it does not quite match in terms of quality and addictiveness. After a while the game becomes a bit repetitive due to lack of variety in enemy types and terrain.

Parkan: The Imperial Chronicles Nikita / 1C [top]

In this Russian-made space shooter & FPS combo, a spaceship called PARKAN (an old native name for boomerang) goes on a rescue mission to search for a lost research vessel. After an accident the ship is stranded in a remote corner of the Universe where on planets burned out by a devastating war still remain several robotic clans who continue fuel mining and construction of weapons production and starships repair factories. The aim of the game is for the pilot of PARKAN to carry out his mission and survive in conditions of complete uncertainty when he is given a carte blanche in his actions. You can use many different survival techniques, starting from peddling and peaceful trading to colonization of planets and open piracy. One of the distinguishing features of the game is its unique genre - a role strategy played from the first person. A vast majority of objects in "PARKAN" are 3D objects and you can enter some of them (planets and starships). Work on the game began in February 1994 and was released in September 1997 and for 6 months running was the top-selling CD-ROM in Russia.

Pax Corpus Cryo Interactive / Electronic Arts [top]

Plunge into the strange world of Oz Nama alongside Kahlee, a dangerously seductive mercenary. Explore a real time 3D environment with a variety of indoor and open sky areas. Fight your way through 40 levels packed with shooting sequences, puzzles, exploration and platforms. Load your Blaster, warm up your joints and set off for an adventure to solve the mystery of the Pax Corpus. If you resist the charms and trickery of Kylana Soro you may be able to help Kahlee to free Oz Nama from this dreadful creation. This was originally to be based on the cult animated series Aeon Flux (with even some video previews in the later episodes of the series) but Viacom New Media was shut down in the middle of development and Cryo then didn't have the license anymore with the game almost complete. So they modified the game. It lacks the original animation that was originally going to be included, has all character names changed, and modifies some of the graphic details and settings, but anyone familiar with the series will recognize the distinct character design and premises from the series.

Postal Running With Scissors / Ripcord Games [top]

In Postal, one takes over the role of a psychopath ("Postal Dude") who represents the view that his peaceful mountain village urgently needs action. Thus he puts on his black leather coat, and his sunglasses and loads a shotgun. Let the carnage begin. His prey are neighbors (who shoot back!), policemen, highschool bands and even Santa Claus. The game runs in an isometric perspective. Indeed the figures are 3-dimensional, but not very detailed and movement is somewhat pixilated. The scenery is nicely drawn, and creates a certain comic atmosphere. The game has been banned for its sadistic violence in a lot of countries, although actually there is no "mutilation" shown, though victims do crawl around wounded while bleeding on the ground and asking for mercy. (Review by Enrique-Portuondo Ochoa)
The game was unsuccessfully sued by the United States Postal Service for misappropriating the term "postal". In 2007, much-maligned director Uwe Boll made a movie adaptation which more closely followed the plot of Postal 2. It actually was faithful to some of that game's plot points unlike his previous adaptations of games like House Of The Dead and Alone In The Dark. Though it's his best-reviewed movie, that's not saying much.

Your job is to rescue the people from 10 different types of aliens, while launching a counter-attacks against the invaders. The game is essentially a 3D shooter, with smooth graphics and decent gameplay options, including a radar, dozens of weapons, and interesting ground structures and ship designs. Unfortunately, the gameplay gets repetitive and tedious quite fast. Despite the change in terrain and enemy types, QAD is essentially a shoot-everyone-in-sight game, and repetitive without anything to keep the game fresh and fun.

Re-Loaded Gremlin Interactive / Interplay [top]

So, you think you've seen some gory games. Think again. This follow-up to the console-only game LOADED was ported to the PC but is little known compared to some success on consoles. This sequel sports some major improvements in the graphics and sound departments, as well as 100% more blood. It all starts on a prison planet where the most sadistic, maniacal killers of all types are being held. After escaping from the prison, the six anti-heroes from Loaded -- Loaded, Mamma, Bounca, Butch, Cap'n'hands, Sister Magpie, and The Consumer -- vow to wreck revenge on the evil C.H.E.B. They do this, naturally, by destroying almost everything that moves in the six levels that stand between them and C.H.E.B.'s world domination scheme. This sequel uses outdoor levels in the top-down perspective (like Take No Prisoners) but has been tweaked a little giving it more of a 3-D feel. However, it can be tough knowing which parts of the level the player's character can walk on, and which parts are of a different elevation can or can't be reached. The graphics, while now rendered instead of sprite-based, are still very pixelated, save the occasionally nice-looking blood splotch on the ground after ventilating an enemy. It also adds specific tasks that must be accomplished in order to complete a mission like collecting three grubs to give to a hippie before he'll fix the bridge, thus allowing the hero to pass. Though not as bloody as Blood or Postal, Re-Loaded is full of massive explosions and flying body parts that come with the shooting and blowing things up.

Resident Evil / Biohazard Capcom / Virgin [top]

The original Playstation game that sparked the popularity of the series was an amazing achievement gameplay wise. It breathed new air into the survival horror genre started by the Alone In The Dark games and sold millions of copies in its first few months. It was ported to the PC a year and a half later. Set in a secret mansion laboratory, the tense feeling of the game was heightened by the mansions claustrophobically tight and narrow corridors which left little margin of error when attempting to evade zombies. The limited ammount of ammo in the game meant that you often avoided encounters with zombies and rationed your ammo carefully saving it for the larger creatures and the ink ribbons which were used to save the game on typwriters were in short supply and you had to be careful how often you saved. The unpredictability of what was going to happen next and the fear of being able to hear the heavy footsteps and breathing of mutant hunters just around the corner, not knowing when it would jump out added to the game's charm. Also graphically speaking the game was dazzling with lavish pre-rendered backdrops that added a certain touch of realism to the house. The large bosses such as the snake, giant plant and the Tyrant were graphical masterpieces and the lesser creatures such as the giant spiders, dogs, zombies and hunters were highly detailed and stunning. A movie was made years later out of this game which was not bad but could not capture the feeling that the game gives in encountering things on your own obviously, which makes the game much scarier.

Resident Evil 1.5 / Biohazard 2 Prototype (cancelled) Capcom [top]

Then along Leon Kennedy's path he encountered a woman named... Elza Walker? Wait! What story is this? Here is a case of practice makes perfect. What is referred to as Resident Evil 1.5 was supposed to be the first sequel to Resident Evil. Leon would've been in this game but instead of Claire having a character role, it would've been a girl named Elza. After almost completing the game it was entirely scrapped and revised from scratch. In the better opinion of producer Shinji Mikami, restarting Resident Evil 2 was a necessary step to take for the creation of a worthy sequel. In subtle comparisons to the two Resident Evil sequel concepts, RE 1.5 has modern looking buildings and overweight cops as opposed to RE 2 having old-fashion looking buildings and thin cops. An item in RE 1.5 that unfortunately isn't in RE 2 is a bullet proof vest that changes a character's appearance, increases personal storage capacity, adds to the character's endurance against attacks, and even stains of blood during prolonged moments of being attacked. Though what finally became Resident Evil 2 can easily be said is a fantastic game, one sometimes can't help to be curious about what might've been. Developed simultaneously for both the Saturn and PlayStation, Capcom's Survival Horror sequel was not coming along as planned. Production Studio 2 then restarted the project, but sadly it was too late for a Saturn version. As a footnote, it is believed that the Saturn prototype was approximately 15% complete, as opposed to the PlayStation's 75-80%. In the latter's case, only the last few sections were supposedly needed before testing would have begun. Also, the very first Japanese television commercial for this game showed not only a Saturn logo but plenty of footage from the original PS code. The Japanese Resident Evil Director's Cut Edition comes packed with a bonus disc, in which there are four gameplay videos of Resident Evil 1.5

S.C.A.R.A.B. John Ratcliff / Electronic Arts [top]

This game is from the designer of CyberStrike 2 and who became lead programmer on PlanetSide. Scarab is an action strategy game with a combat environment that revolves around the dual struggle for territorial control or death to your opponents. You represent the Gods of the Underworld, disembodied spirits which bring to life the different combat robots. While your spirit has vast powers the mechanical bodies you inhabit are designed solely for raw combat. Scarab is set in Egypt where players joust amid seven fully textured settings that include structures such as pyramids, tombs, or marketplaces. Those arenas include an array of elements that help create more interesting gameplay. Some of those elements include: multi-tiered buildings, elevators, moving platforms, tunnels, and underground labyrinths. When you play the game you get 3 incarnations. At each incarnation you have your choice of which robot you wish to control, Anubis, Horus, or Sekhmet. You can equip each robot with select weapons. For instance, the nimble robot "Horus" who sports a bird-like head, flies around with a jet pack, and is adept with trap or mine related weapons. Players can progress through five weapon levels for a total of 40 different weapons including: mortars, lasers, mines and a variety of missile systems. Scarab offers 140 missions where players can test strategies from assaults and artillery strikes to ambushes and defensive perimeters. After your third life is lost your spirit is released to haunt the world that you can only vaugely perceive. There are 2 ways to win the game, control the battlefield through power producing towers, or to kill all of the opposing robots 3 times each. For the v1.1 patch (Mplayer release) a new game option is now available called "deathmatch." In deathmatch mode you cannot win the game by power, but instead the winner is determined by the last robot left alive.

Sand Warriors: Battle For The Sun Throne Gremlin Interactive / Interplay [top]

SandWarriors tries to be something of a Wing Commander in the Egyptian desert of the future. The game centers around two warring factions, each worshipping a different Egyptian deity, that spend their days fighting each other for power. Aside from funny hats, desert locales and stylized Egyptian flight suits, the game doesn't really do much with its premise. Your mission commander seems more like he's from Arkansas than the Nile Basin, and the character you play sounds more like a kid from L.A than a warrior of this new Egypt. The 24 missions included with the game are extremely difficult, as combat with multiple air and ground forces is the norm. While the game doesn't use 3D acceleration, it's still quite good looking, with well-implemented rolling terrain. One odd feature is hotkeys for specific aerial maneuvers, which are usually used when you need a special sort of evasion. There are also various low-resolution cinematic sequences throughout, and voice communications during the mission. SandWarriors isn't a particularly terrible game by any means - it's just lacking any outstanding or even interesting qualities to make it stand out on the software shelves.

Streets of Sim City Maxis / Electronics Arts [top]

This is a racing and vehicular combat computer game. The novelty of this game stemmed mostly from the fact that the player could race cars around cities that had been created in SimCity 2000. The game is in full 3D, which was a departure from Maxis's normal fare. It is one of the few games in the Maxis series that Will Wright did not work on. Like SimCopter, there are two modes: Career and Free mode. In Free mode, you drive around the city battling rival vehicles with four levels of difficulty. Included is a "Sunday Drive" option that simply lets you drive around the city at your own, leisurely pace. Career mode features 4 different TV-shows that you take part in, with plots ranging from a Courier service, to a Grandmother trying to stop Aliens from taking over the Earth, to a racecar drive trying to raise money for his terminally-ill child. Yes, you read that correctly. Despite features such as being able to load cities from SimCity 2000 and an excellent soundtrack (the radio system carried 4 stations: Country, Jazz, Techno and Rock), the game was known more for its bugs, including unexpected crashes, issues with vehicles stuck in buildings, people walking backwards and being able to drive through trees.

So, in this case you fight 20 different enemies and there are over 40 different weapons, powerups, items (emergency flares, gas masks, IR goggles, hover belts, etc,) and vehicles for you to play around with. As you go along you pick up passcodes, data disks, maps, and notes which are stored on your Personal Data Device (PDD) and the correct one is automatically used when you try to use a door, vehicle or elevator.

Terracide Simis / Eidos Interactive [top]

This is a Descent clone. The people who were sent out once by the earth to settle in other planets return in weapon-loaded spaceships and want to subjugate the earth, because they now have acquired extraterrestrial technology (mother Earth still being the nicest place in the galaxy). In fire power one cannot match them so a small hovercraft is sent which can penetrate into the ships and destroy them thusly. In the first straight mission, one is still led to the ship's entrance and the internal ones are rather linear and dull. In the following one, you must find at first under the hostile bombardment the entrance in the ship and from there it goes on. A huge number of weapons provide for some diversity, which is a good thing because the missions themselves offer nothing that special.

Thunder Offshore NoriaWorks Entertainment [top]

This is a game that mixes futuristic motor boat racing simulation with a Wipeout-esque touch regarding the ways in which you could disfavour your rivals. It's futuristic, as it takes place in the third millennium, a time where motor boats can dive not just in water, but also in lava, acid and all kinds of dangerous substances. You can test your abilities in no less than 15 circuits, in which you will need to face precipices, make incredible jumps and even immerse in water as if you were inside a submarine. There are at least 10 available weapons (from lasers to torpedoes) to satisfy your most anti-fair play inclinations, but beware, your rivals could use them against you, too. Also, if you're in the mood of playing against humans, there's also a multiplayer mode, which works either by IPX, local network or regular internet connection.

Tomb Raider 2: The Dagger Of Xian Core Design / Eidos [top]

In Dagger Of Xian, one is in search of the titled item around which a dark legend is based. It is believed that if the dagger is rammed into the body (more exactly the heart) of a person, this person gets the form and the strength of a fire-breathing though flightless dragon. This adventure with Lara Croft begins in the Great Wall of China and is continued later in Venice and Tibet. Once more, Tomb Raider offers nice backgrounds for the exciting adventures of Lara Croft. This time Lara can climb up walls, perform 1800 rolls, swim underwater and light torches to eluminate dark spaces. Lara can also drive different vehicles and use new weapons. This time 3d graphic maps are also supported.

Trucks Microfolie [top]

Trucks is an interesting driving game that plays like a cross between Interstate '76, Quarantine, and Terminal Velocity, except not nearly as innovative or fun as any of these games.This futuristic game is set on the planet Cooroocoocoo (I am not making this up), where you are an aspiring businessman/driver who has to buy one of 8 trucks available and takes on various missions. Once you finish buying your truck, fitting it with parts and crew, and accepting your first mission, you will leave from a service station driving your truck from a first-person view. The gameplay is more arcade-inspired than realistic because you can pick up various power-ups, although the truck handles more or less like a real truck. Naturally, the more missions you accomplish, the more money you will have available to buy better parts for the truck and hire more competent crew. The graphics are reminiscent of Terminal Velocity, although it looks better in SVGA, with smooth scrolling and good truck details. There are over 80 missions you can take, although they are not so different from each other. Multiplayer races and fights are supported via LAN and TCP/IP. All in all, Trucks is a slightly-better-than-mediocre driving game that boasts neither ingenuity nor addictiveness, but will not seriously disappoint or bore you to tears, either.

Twisted Metal 2 / Twisted Metal World Tour SingleTrac Entertainment Technologies, Inc. / Sony Interactive Studios America [top]

Twisted Metal 2 was the only game in the console series to come on the PC outside Japan and features destructive car combat, playable either as a complete tournament or a single match. It's a demolition derby which permits the usage of ballistic projectiles. Players choose a vehicle and an arena—or a series of arenas in the story mode—to engage in battle with opposing drivers. A variety of weapons are obtainable by pick-ups scattered throughout the stage. The objective of the game is to be the last remaining player. The story follows up from the first game and is set a year later, having a man named Calypso host a vehicular combat tournament called Twisted Metal, which grants its winner a prize: Calypso will grant them one wish. The action takes place in 8 different locations around the world, on differing surfaces, many featuring destructible buildings and landmarks. Combat takes place between a wide array of vehicles ranging from a man strapped between two wheels to an ice cream truck. Each car has its own special move, and the game obeys a logical yet totally unrealistic physics model that allows you to turn on a dime and go flying 100 feet in the air. They have their own strengths and weaknesses, using an eclectic arrangement of weaponry include bombs and missiles, and resulting in its own end sequence, complete with an ironic line in humour. There are also a few multiplayer modes to choose from, including a two-player co-operative mode that allows you and a friend to go against computer-controlled teams.

Universal Force: Eardis Second Edition [K] Soft Action / CD Utopia [top]

Officially the sequel to Eardis, but Universal Force actually follows an entirely different concept. Soft Action had a shot at the third dimension for the first time, and the result was a first person flight action game similar to Terminal Velocity or Fury 3. The missions are all very simple, the task is always to destroy certain structures while avoiding / wiping out the enemy air defense. Controls are simple enough, steering, thrust, brake, laser, missile, missile change, much more isn't neccessary. There is also a radar map available, but for no apparent reason it is mirrored, which is very confusing. Every few mission awaits a flight on auto pilot, which means a FMV sequence in where the player just has to concentrate on the shooting alone, here the game uses a mouse aim. These sections are kinda boring, though, as the enemies just fly over the screen without attempting any offensive moves, and when too many of them escape, the mission has to be repeated. After every mission the player gets back to the base, where one can equip the ship with various boosters, guns and missiles, load or save the game and watch the briefing. The 3D graphics are kinda meh, mostly for the extremely short view range. The terrain often blends in even later than objects, so far away tanks and buildings look like they're floating in the air when seen from afar. Nonetheless, the game was rather hardware hungry compared to its visual quality, but there is also a scanlined mode available, which greatly improves the performance. The FMV portions of course are less hardware-dependent and look better than the rest of the game, but they're still somewhat sterile and boring. Once again, the music makes the best part of the game, it even was decorated for best music in a Korean game in 1997. Only the fact that it's all CD audio makes it a bit undynamic, and the obligatory gap at the end of a track is a bit annoying.

Virtua Squad 2 / Virtua Cop 2 AM2 / Sega Entertainment [top]

This is a good port of the Sega arcade hit game which is a rail shooter in first person view. Similar to House Of The Dead, there is a new feature - the ability to choose between two different paths per level. You'll get bonus points for hitting targets quickly and also for hitting them three times before they hit the ground. Civilians pop up from time to time, yelling "Don't shoot!" and "Somebody help me!" and generally getting in the way. A targeting reticle homes in on the villain who poses the most immediate threat, and offers you a visual cue as to how long it will take the guy to get a bead on you. As the reticle changes from green to yellow to red, you know that he's about to shoot. The enemies react differently depending on where you hit them. Shoot them in the groin and they will fall forward, clutching themselves in agony. Shoot them in the head, and you will see it snap and the body fall backward in realistic motion. There are also many more interactive backgrounds than in the first game: you can crash windows, lighting fixtures, or even make cars jackknife across the road by shooting their tires. Although the graphics are a bit out-of-date especially compared with 3D-accelrated marvels today, the details of polygons and their animations here are certainly second to none. The levels though are a bit short and the game relatively easy.

Virus: The Game Telstar Electronic Studios / Kidum Multimedia [top]

Your computer is under virus attack. Your job: seek out the infection, crush the virus lurking in your files and folders, and destroy it before it destroys you. Your own pictures, videos and sounds become part of the game. If it reaches your Windows directory, your files will be destroyed, your mouse will stop working, and your screen will go black. Just remember: it's only a game! Virus is a strategy game, well hidden in a Descent- style engine. The first level in the game is like this: You are placed in an attack craft, and you have to roam around in a lessened version of your directory structure. The task is to destroy the viruses residing in your files. The second level introduces you to the strategic part of the game; you'll need to build up a base and construct attack crafts and Kilobyte collectors. Kilobyte collectors are unarmed units designed to harvest KB which can be converted into energy by your KB Transformer. Energy is what you need to build things. However, new viruses will constantly attack your base, making it very hard to construct a base, even on the basic levels. And that's really what the essence of this game is: To collect kilobytes to build up your base, and then kill the virus. You can tell your units to patrol between two locations, auto-pilot them to new locations, and other various commands. You can take control over your units, and move them around manually, and this is the method of preference.

Weekend Warrior {MAC} Pangea Software, Inc. / Bungie Software Products Corporation [top]

This is a unique Mac game. Sort of a bizarre hybrid of Smash TV and American Gladiators, it's set within a gameshow where you assume the identity of an ordinary, everyday character and enter a challenging 3D arena. Choose from eight characters, including Postal Paul, The Cowboy, The Astronaut and Super-Fan. Cash and prizes can be yours by escaping traps, completing missions and pummeling other contestants into submission. This game was developed by Brian Greenstone of Pangea Software fame but released under the Bungie brand. Like most of Pangea's action games, it is a third person game set within a colourful environment. Since this game was developed during the early days of graphic card enhanced 3D, the fully 3D characters are a bit blocky. Each character has their own special attacks and can be played in a range of different "arenas". Each arena has its own specific task, often time constrained, and a host of baddies such as rats emerging from the floor, to delay and sap the strength of the contestants. It was later released as freware.

Winds Of Zolaria Gaijin Entertainment / A.B.T.S. Intelligence Group [top]

This is a shoot 'em up similar to Starfox made for those who possessed 3D cards at the time. You have to divert the emissions of the Princess Zolaria, who's been gorging on sprouts for seven years. It has two multi-player levels and four ships are available for split-screen action, and there's a single-player section for those without mates. The Descent-style space/corridor shooter from the Florida-based developer was created as an engine test and distributed it for free over the Internet. The team then used what it learned from Winds of Zolaria and created Evil Core: The Fallen Cities. Venture between the gullies and annihilate your enemies. It is recommended for a 3Dfx video card or FireGL series.

Wipeout XL / Wipeout 2097 Psygnosis Limited [top]

A breakneck speed racing game set in the year 2097 featuring anti-gravity hovercrafts. The vehicles can "pick up" weapons and power-ups by flying over the weapon grids marked on the track. This sequel moved the Wipeout brand forward, introducing new tracks, new craft, and new weapons such as the Quake Disruptor (which sent a ripple down the track) that became instant fan favourites. To cater for the increase in Wipeout players, an easier learning curve was introduced whilst keeping the difficulty at top end for the experienced gamers. Artists contributing to the in-game soundtrack included The Prodigy, The Future Sound of London, Chemical Brothers and Underworld. An entire nightclub tour was also initiated in conjunction with Red Bull Energy Drink, which was featured prominently throughout the game, before the drink actually gained popularity in the American market. Each craft had a shield energy quota, and when this quota reached zero—either from damage sustained from weapon attacks, or impact from other craft or the edges of the circuit—the craft would blow up. The craft would also blow up if a certain time limit was not reached, though this only applied to human players. Definitely one of the best futuristic racing games ever made, Wipeout XL not only once again cements Psygnosis' reputation as the powerhouse of action genre, but also introduces many novelties to the genre. The game takes place 97 years after the events of the original Wipeout, when improvements on Anti-Gravity Ballistic Racing technology have enabled sleeker and more maneuverable hovercrafts. The game is much more difficult and realistic than Wipeout. Whereas you can easily blow up your opponents in the original game with a well-placed missile or two, this time around all vehicles sustain damage first before they spectacularly explode. The selection of weapons has been expanded, and ranges from proximity mines to track-shredding earthquake bombs. If your energy is running low, just fly through one of the pit stops and you?ll be back in one piece. You can even turn the weapons off altogether if you prefer more pure racing. The game shipped without a multiplayer feature, but a patch was released with support for IPX, TCP/IP, serial and modem connection.

Simulations

AHx-1 Pixel Multimedia / GT Interactive Software Corp. [top]

AHx-1 is a simulation of the fictional helicopter AHx-1 Viper. The player controls a member of an elite unit who uses this helicopter to beat three campaigns. Each campaign features eleven missions and are set in Columbia where drug lords swamp the world with heroin, Russia where evil General Nemarov wants to renew the Cold war and Libya where Colonel Ghaddafi has to be beaten. Every mission begins with a thorough briefing that includes primary and secondary objectives and a lot of not necessarily needed background information. After the briefing the player stocks up his weapons for the mission which include typical gear like a 30mm--gun, "Hellfire" rockets which can kill everything in one shot and "TV Missiles" which flight path is controlled by the player. Similar to the Comanche series the gameplay is action-oriented. The missions have varied goals, e.g. the destroying of units from the own side as a cover-up or the annihilation of certain targets in contaminated areas. Besides the typical cockpit view there is a special aiming mode. While using this mode the player gives the flight control to the co-pilot who holds the height and speed but doesn't react to obstacles in the way.

Alien Attack Epsilon Soft / Ediciones Mago [top]

This is a rare Spanish cosmic shooter in first-person view. According to some reports, originally distributed as a free supplement to a magazine about video games, and its very creation was the result of the developer's participation in a kind of contest - although later there was also a commercial version. The whole essence of the gameplay is a "flight" in outer space (if flashing white dots - and other objects - on a black screen may be called that) and shooting asteroids and enemies, who are represented by several types of aircraft, and not only (for example, there are "living plasmoids). There's no additional "lives" too - there is only a certain "margin of safety", abbreviated due to hits from enemy weapons, collisions with asteroids and explosions - if the object is destroyed next to you too close. The methods to fill "health" are there, and a top scores board. Graphics, as such, are minimized - even on the "flight" there are several recurring on the screen (and in fact static) relatively large celestial bodies; the effects of the explosion can be restrained but can be called "quite good". But, of course, for commercial games, and even came out in the mid-1990s, a similar picture of quality is hardly possible to consider as acceptable; but the music in the intro turned out just great.

Armored Fist 2: M1A2 Abrams NovaLogic, Inc. [top]

Based on the same engine as Comanche 3, Novalogic once again delivered a tank simulator using their proven VoxelSpace technology. Armored Fist 2 models the US Army's M1A2 Abrams main battle tank just like its predecessor, which also used the previous Comanche voxel engine to generate realistic terrain and models without 3D accelerator video cards. Similar to most Novalogic simulations, this product is targeted more at an action-oriented audience not seeking too much realism. Armored Fist 2 has over 50 pre-scripted missions set on campaigns in Europe, Asian, Africa, and the Middle East. The tank can be controlled through various views such as the gunner's station, driver's port, commander's seat, or exterior views. You also have a few other tanks in your platoon usually, and sometimes even helicopter gunships for close air support. The CD also features live training footage from the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center at 29 Palms, California.

Sometimes described as Asteroids on steroids, Astro3D is a 3D space shooter in which your job is to clear a field of debris from a massive three-dimensional space. Far more challenging than just shooting rocks, the debris field is full of alien ships and mines, and you are constantly in combat fighting for your life.

Power-ups left behind can replenish your weapons and shields. Originally published by the developer, there was a second release listing the new publisher in the documents only, followed by a recompiled version that listed the publisher in-game and has a Win16 installer. Otherwise all versions are identical. There are 12 levels in this game, with only the first 3 playable in the shareware version.

Darklight Conflict Rage Games Ltd. / Electronic Arts, Inc. [top]

This is a space combat game like Wing Commander. In this game, you play the part of a contemporary human fighter pilot abducted by the alien Repton species during your aerial battle, and biologically modified to become a starfighter pilot for them in their war against the Ovon race. In the game itself, you usually pilot one of three different starfighters, each with different strengths and weaknesses, along with occasionally piloting a captured enemy ship, or controlling a gun turret on your Mothership (The "War Drum"). The missions are quite varied, ranging from simple combat missions to missions where you need to defend your mothership, destroy an enemy Ovon mothership, clear an asteroid field, or retrieve an object with a tractor beam. Your ship moves between mission areas via "hyperspace portals", passing through a hyper-space environment, resembling that seen in 2001: A Space Odyssey. Often during hyperspace transit, varying streams of energy are encountered - yellow energy replenishing the energy which fuels the ship, while blue energy drains it, reducing the ship's effectiveness. After you complete the four campaigns and destroy the Ovon home-world for the Reptons, they reward you by sending their best pilots to kill you in an honorable way (after all, they don't need a human in their society and war history). It also has multiplayer modes like Race and Tag for IPX network users.

Deer Hunter Sunstorm Interactive, Inc. / WizardWorks Software [top]

The first in a long-lasting series of hunting simulators, Deer Hunter puts the player in the role of a man (or woman) hunting the forest for deer. Players can choose between 3 different areas in the US: Arkansas, Colorado, and Indiana. Once arrived at the location, the game is a static first-person shooter experience. Players can turn left and right, but have no other choice of movement. In order to find and attract deer, the player can use one of several items; including the Deer Call, Antlers and Binoculars. Once a deer is spotted, it is up to the player to shoot it and take it down. Three different weapons are available which are: the Rifle with scope (easiest difficulty), the Shotgun (medium difficulty), and the Bow (hardest difficulty). After successfully killing a deer, its head will be transferred to the game's Trophy Room with statistics for size, area found, weapon used, etc. The game was conceived by a Wal-Mart buyer, and was contracted to Sunstorm by WizardWorks. The game was expected to be a throw-away, bargain-bin type title. Surprisingly enough, the original concept of the game was simply an arcade-style shooting gallery in which the hunter couldn't even move around in a map view. However, by pushing for more realism and an added map view, the programmers managed to convince the company owner to allow a more simulation-oriented title, but were given no more time to do so, as the game needed to be released by the start of the deer hunting season. The entire game was developed by three relatively inexperienced programmers. One was a college intern, for another it was his first project, and the lead only had one other game to his credit. A single part-time artist created all the art, assisted by a programmer, who also did all the voice-overs as well. The entire game was finished in about 11 weeks and for around $75,000. It was a big bestselling title. See also: #Deer Hunter: Extended Season

Extreme Assault Blue Byte Software GmbH [top]

Aliens have secretly set up operation on Earth, it's up to you to stop their evil plans. With a futuristic Sioux AH-23 Attack Helicopter and a "Next Generation" T1 assault tank you're sure up for a fight. Blast your way through fancy 3D graphics (perhaps the most fancy to have been seen in a DOS game) from mission to mission. A game for those who crave non-stop action. And it features a magnificent soundtrack composed by Fabian Del Priore. It's a one- to four- player air/land combat game that puts you in a one-machine battle. The aliens have taken your towns and factories, they've kidnapped your people, and they've burrowed a staggeringly vast underground network into your tender green planet. Why, the rotten little SOBs even had the gall to swipe and overhaul one of your own naval destroyers for use against you. Your Sioux AH-23 attack helicopter maneuvers with Jetsons-era ease. And while a joystick of some kind feels especially good here (force-feedback models are also supported), you can do just fine with up, down, forward, backward, left, right, and with the fire key. The out-and-out battles in open skies are tense enough, but Extreme Assault really starts to get freaky when you're exploring a dark alien subterranean fortress, skulking around each new corner with no idea whether you're going to find mines or a four-story Anime-style robot. In towns and factories on the ground, chopper-to-chopper (or whatever) combat takes a pugilistic, bob-and-weave turn as you use the local buildings to your advantage, sideslipping to launch missiles or barrages of cannon-fire. The third-person follow-cam view of your Sioux is pretty all right, but the low-interference virtual-cockpit view is better. And the totally unobstructed vista of the sans-cockpit mode is better still, and safer - there are just too many things out there to risk even a minor blind spot.

F/A-18 Korea Graphic Simulations Corporation / Empire Interactive Entertainment [top]

F/A-18 Korea is the successor of F/A-18 Hornet 3.0 and simulates the F/A-18C/D Hornet dual-purpose fighter and strike aircraft. The new campaign with 28 missions takes place in Korea. Typical goals are the bombing of silos or atomic reactors. The game lies its focus on the realistic simulation of the aircraft and so the player has to work with a complex set of key combinations to control it. To make it easier to get used to the controls there are several training missions which discuss the functions in great detail. Besides the scenario the only real difference to F/A-18 Hornet 3.0 is the new support of 3Dfx graphic cards. A speciality in comparison to other flight simulations is that the player can't just start the airship when he receives the clearance for take off - he has to wait until it is his turn and the airstrip is free.

F22 Air Dominance Fighter Digital Image Design Ltd. / Ocean Europe Limited [top]

In F-22 Air Dominance Fighter, the successor to DID's EF2000, players get the chance to fly the advanced fighter from the US Air Force in a war. You have control over up to 4 F-22 ADFs. or an AWACS. With the F-22 you fly miscellaneous missions such as air-to-ground or air-to-air or protect the AWACS around the war zone. If the AWACS are down you are sightless, making the mission harder to complete. From the AWACS you have control over all aircraft and you can send out commands to protect an aircraft or attack the enemy. Unlike the later Total Air War, there is no dynamic campaign. All missions in the game are defined - start from point A, fly over B, Attack by C, going home over D and land by A, for example. Before you go to the warzone, you have a chance to learn to fly the F-22. Over 30 instruction missions involve taking off, landing, miscellaneous weapons trainings, AWACS training, dealing with miscellaneous hydraulic and electrical failure, and many more.

Fighter Ace / Air Attack VR-1 Russia/BST Soft / VR-1 Canada/Gemsoft, Microsoft Corporation [top]

Originally called Air Attack, Microsoft bought the rights in the United States and Canada and renamed it Fighter Ace for release on the Microsoft Internet Gaming Zone. Fighter Ace allows players to experience what World War II aerial combat was really like, by taking on over 100 live opponents at once in a massive dogfight for air supremacy. It delivers cutting-edge 3D graphics, with real-time, texture-mapped terrain and high-resolution, detailed aircraft accurately modeled after the actual fighters. Players can choose to fly 16 World War II-era aircraft from the United States, Great Britain, Germany and Russia. And the landscape, which is detailed down to the individual pixels, gives players an uncanny sensation of actual flight. According to experienced pilots, all that is missing from the experience are the inner-ear messages telling you that the plane is banked, or level, or changing altitude. What really distinguishes Fighter Ace is that multiple players can play online at once, linked via the Internet. The players communicate by virtual radio transmissions; that is, typed messages to teammates and opposing players. After a free one-day trial, players could experience unlimited hours of game play for $1.95 per day or $9.95 per month. Players attain rank from sergeant to general by accumulating kills and points. They can choose to play in an arena where they are pitted against the virtual world and every player is their enemy, or they choose to play on a team: German, American, Russian, or British. Or players can check out the Deathmatch arena. That's the game's version of the ultimate reality: blackouts, redouts, limited ammunition, and cockpit-limited views, among other challenges. The game involved the use of talk software known as, "Roger Wilco." This software allowed players to communicate with team mates during game play via a headset. With the closure of Fighter Ace in 2010, Ketsujin studios re-opened an original AirAttack game server but experienced downtimes until it completely shut down in 2012. Community members have done ongoing maintenance and redevelopment starting in March 2013 on the website and on the game servers to restore full operability.

In 1997, the Spanish magazine MicroManía convened a Programming Games Contest with a hearty first prize of 500,000 pesetas. This game was sent to the contest, and won second prize: an IBM Aptiva PC (Pentium 133 mHz) ... and ... strangely , the first prize was not awarded. This is a space shooter in 3D, where you have to perform the tasks assigned to you: Eliminate enemy ships, escort friendly ships to their destination, etc ... 3D graphics, stereo sound effects, and all in a 97-Spanish amateur .game .. you read that right. It's a fast game with beautiful graphics, and is devilishly funny, and truly addictive. During the game we can obtain different views of the ship (from the inside or from the outside) different ranges using radars, etc ... All this, as we fly towards fulfilling the mission. In case there were too few tasks included in the game, there is also a complete integrated editor that lets you create your own. Moreover, there is a system for recording and retrieval of items that allow you to leave it for later.

G-Nome 7th Level [top]

In the future, an uneasy peace exists between humans and three alien races. The Scorps are developing a highly powerful weapon, and it's your job to sneak behind enemy lines to figure out what's happening. In this Mech shooter, the single-player game is well structured, taking you through four sets of missions in graphically distinct locales. Once you head out on missions with teammates, you have a nice degree of control over their actions - you can order them to attack or occupy enemy craft and buildings, come to your defense, and even jump inside your vehicle for a ride. Because there are four races in the game, you get a good variety of HAWCs (Heavy Armor Weapons Chassis) and weapons, including tanks and a camera-mounted missile you guide with the joystick. Best of all, you can leave your own vehicle and jump into the enemy's abandoned mechs and laser turrets, take him out with his own weapons, then hop back in your own HAWC and use his IFF (Identify Friend or Foe) code to avoid detection. The title has a full complement of multiplayer options. The graphics, while certainly more colorful and detailed than what you'll find in MechWarrior 2, comes at a price: big pixels and warping terrain. Ground terrain is amazingly pixelated. It can also be frustrating to control and commands can be sluggish.

Gravity Well Software Engineering, Inc. [top]

This is a strategic war game of planetary conquest with arcade elements. It can be played in 'Solitaire' mode where the player competes against three computer opponents, or in multi-player mode against other opponents. The objective is to claim all available planets in the sector for the empire. The player takes control of one of four races and must explore the available universe for new planets. Once these have been located the player must land to claim them and then defend them so that freighters can come and build either colonies, if the planet is habitable, or outposts and tech bases if it is not. Where a planet has been colonized the existing structures must be destroyed before another player can claim it. The single player game is customizable. The player can select their opponents from sixteen races whose characteristics range from timid to suicidal, the number of ships and types of starting weapons can be changed with more weapons and base upgrades being awarded during the game. The ships are fast and will fly in one direction until they are rotated and thrust is applied to change course. Landing on a planet or star base therefore requires the player to head directly for their target and at the right moment rotate their ship and apply thrust to reduce speed and counter gravitational attraction.

Heavy Gear Target Games / Activision [top]

After losing the Battletech license for Mechwarrior games, Activision continued with this game based on Dream Pod 9's rival anime-inspired giant robot pen-and-paper RPG. Gears are much smaller than Mechs, standing a mere four meters in height on the average. They're supposed to be fast and agile, limited only by the flexibility and speed of their human pilots but feel as slow as the MechWarrior giant robots. The terrain is much more detailed than in MechWarrior 2, with rolling hills and plenty of boulders, cacti, and other such obstacles that can be used as cover in the heat of battle. The game engine enables special effects including flowing clouds, lighting, and transparent shadows. The unobtrusive green heads-up display, which readily displays your status and weapons loadout while outlining your target in color-coded wire frame to show how much damage he's sustained, and where. Still the weapon effects, explosions and enemy animations all are a bit dull. The sound and music are nice though. It offers two well-designed solo play modes, the first being a linear story composed of nearly three dozen missions. The story unfolds through beautifully rendered cutscenes in between missions and over radio communication during the missions themselves. The less structured but equally enjoyable tour-of-duty game also allows you to handpick your missions as you rise through the ranks on either side of a civil war. The AI is not too good but the many enemies compensate by their number.

iM1A2 Abrams Charybdis Enterprises / Interactive Magic Ltd. [top]

This represents the first truly serious tank simulation since MicroProse released M1 Tank Platoon way back in 1989. Created by the same design team that produced that classic, this pseudo-sequel manages to add several 90's enhancements to that tried and true formula. You are in direct command of four American M1 battle tanks. As the platoon leader, you can either direct the action from the relative safety of the map view, or you can hop in and take direct control of any tank within your platoon. Once inside a tank, you can act as driver, commander, or gunner at any time, while the computer automatically controls the other positions. Be warned, however, that since each member of the crew has his own realistic crew station, successfully commanding your vehicle in combat requires that you master four very different battle stations (and be able to switch among them on the fly). While true simulation aficionados will undoubtedly delight in this complexity, those looking for a quick dose of adrenaline may find the learning curve a bit steep. Then you also use an overhead map from which you can issue orders to not only your own tank platoon, but also multiple support units - various forms of artillery, mechanized infantry, air defense units, and attack aircraft. Although you cannot assume direct control of these units, you can assign waypoints and issue basic orders such as "advance," "retreat," and "attack target." The A.I. uses aggressive tactics but armchair warriors wishing to engage in a little subterfuge can battle it out head-to-head over IPX network, modem, and (coming soon) Internet play via Mplayer and iMagic Online.

This arcade game is based loosely on the 1996 blockbuster movie "Independence Day." Interspersed with cutscenes lifted from the film, the game consists of flying a jet through various missions in order to take down the gargantuan, city-destroying spaceships. This entails flying around the 3D level and taking out targets such as: communication uplinks, shield generators, the occasional alien fighter craft, and ultimately bringing down the major alien ship via a strike on its main cannon. Powerups are plentiful, such as medical packs that heal your jetcraft, bonus weapons, bonus planes, and an item that freezes enemy planes for a brief time. Mission settings include the Grand Canyon, Washington D.C., and New York City. There are other missions that are provided on a need-to-know basis (as stated in the manual). The game also features 2-player head-to-head action via a network or null modem link.

This new version runs in WIN9X, and adds a Vietnam Airwar campaign with the related planes such as the F-8 Crusader, F-4 Phantom, A-7 Corsair, and improved multiplayer capabilities. It kicks off the campaign with President Richard Milhaus Nixon announcing Operation Linebacker. And then it's over to you, strapped into the F4J (with guns) and ready to rock'n'roll! If you want a tad more authenticity you can fly the F-4B which had no guns. Be warned though the AIM-7 Sparrows and AIM-9B Sidewinders are dumbed down from their usual sim efficiency. This is to give you a taste of their actual performance (hits and misses ) in combat at the time (a fairly dismal record).. Drop the flaps, burner on and HAUL the beast over the top. Plus it has the detailed technical information only available from Jane's Information Group. Now you can fly 14 different naval combat aircraft, spanning 30 years of conflict. Fly F-4 Phantoms over the jungles of Vietnam, or F/A-18 Hornets off the coast of the Kurile Islands. Engage in vicious guns only dogfights, or precision ground strikes using fire-and-forget smart weapons. Even battle human opponents with full modem and network support. All of this, with over 100 missions, across three separate campaigns.

JetFighter III Mission Studios [top]

The Jetfighter series returns once again, albeit this time it is released by Mission Studios, a spin-off from Velocity, the original developers of this franchise. While once again the battle is against a drug lord, it takes place over South America instead of the U.S. West Coast as in its prequels. The campaign is structure similar to Strike Commander/Wing Commander, where the scripted missions are linked by a intricate story. The player is a pilot aboard an aircraft carrier, and can move around various places about the ship between each mission. Jetfighter III features terrain generated from satellite data, with geographically correct cities, roads, and airports. Flyable jets include the F/A-18 and the naval F-22N. A later patch allowed for 3DFX support.

JetFighter III: Enhanced Campaign CD Mission Studios [top]

New scenery, missions and game features for the JetFighter III Combat Flight Simulator. The 74 new missions are a bit more challenging than those found in the original and follow the same well-implemented mission structure. The missions are divided into two campaigns: Seward's Ghost and Operation Dragonslayer. In Seward's Ghost, a ten-mission campaign, you are deployed to the Bering Straight to protect Alaska from Russians demanding that it be returned to them. With 64 missions, the Dragonslayer campaign is deeper and more interesting. It begins with the delivery of the F-14 for a test flight, just as a resurgent China starts looking for breathing room in Russia, Japan, and Korea. The missions have good flow, beginning with you beating back attacks on the fleet, then going further and further inland for strikes in support of the ground forces. You fall back now and then to protect the fleet some more, and the whole thing ends with a free-for-all attack on retreating Chinese forces. The new missions take place over that "5 million square miles" of new terrain in Alaska, Korea, Japan, and Eastern Russia. You can also do "free flights" over the new landscapes. The F-14 also brings along the AIM-54 "Phoenix" missiles: expensive, longer range, very accurate missiles. The Phoenix figures specifically into a mission that involves destroying incoming cruise missiles. Overall flight performance has been tweaked slightly with the addition of flaps, an autopilot, and modestly improved rudder realism. A wingman view, programmable joystick features, carrier views, faster load times, and new aircraft insignias round out the package. One of the problems of the original - hitches during terrain loading - has been slightly smoothed, but not substantially.

Mass Destruction NMS Software Ltd. / BMG Interactive Entertainment [top]

Mass Destruction is an addictive 3D shoot 'em up that would have been much more successful had it not been released a few years too late. Similar to Return Fire, the game offers frenetic top-down shoot-everything-that-moves action. Despite the repetitive nature, Mass Destruction has all that it takes to glue action gamers to the screen: big explosions, nonstop action, and intuitive controls. Although it is basically a shooter, each of the game's 24 levels has distinct tactical objectives. Terrain ranges from the arctic tundra, Middle East deserts, rural plains, to crowded urban areas. There are plenty of secret areas and power-ups to discover, but you must be sure to accomplish objectives before time runs out. There are 3 different tanks you can choose to control, ranging from the usual quick-but-vulnerable kind to a slow-but-durable one. Ammo is easy to replenish, and there are dozens of different weapons you can use, from mortar shells to heavy-duty flamethrowers, guided missiles, and explosives. On the hard difficulty level, Mass Destruction will challenge even expert gamers. Multiplayer mode via IPX is competent, although more modes would be welcome. While the graphics are merely passable, and the sounds terrible, the gameplay saves the day and makes this underdog a worthy addition to every action gamer's collection.

Escape from Earth and go home to Omega 7. Fly and fight your way up the 5 Arenas to the final one, the Ozone arena, from which you can fly back home to Omega 7. In order to be transferred to the next zone, your ship must pass through the gate (which is a big ring floating in mid-air), loaded with full gate energy. Passing through the gate with insufficient energy will not activate the gate. The HUD (Heads Up Display) shows the direction to the nearest gate energy unit/generator. Gate energy generators can also be released. Releasing them is recommended when an increase in ship performance is needed, or when being chased by powerful enemies. The ship energy and weapon packs are usually obtained by flying through them floating in mid-air. Ship energy decreases whenever your ship is hit by weapons fire, or if it touches the surface. If it reaches zero then the ship explodes. Shield protects your ship from being hit but also prevents you from using weapons or grabbing packs. Invisibility is useful but does not protect you from being hit. There are 5 types of weapons - laser, guided missile, mine, cluster pack, and dummy gate energy generator. The radar shows the objects near the player's ship.

Raider Wars Interactive Magic Online [top]

This was online-only game developed for AOL's premium game services and based on the Planetary Raiders engine. It was somewhat influenced by Wing Commander; 8 ships were available with each having their own unique cockpit style. 3D graphics were done entirely in software with no slowdown whatsoever. While this did have the unfortunate side effect of no texture mapping, the gameplay more than made up for it, with massive battles taking place between the three corporations. A keyboard and mouse did not do this game justice - you needed to have a joystick to feel the full effect. The story was average - 3 corporations battling it out for control of a valuable solar system. Hast, Osis, and Vaught were the three corporations you could pledge loyalty to. Switching a corporation incurred a 15-minute 'no switching' penalty, so most of the players generally stayed with the corp they were assigned to. The objective was to capture the enemy's CVs, or space stations. 15 CVs were scattered across the solar system with a certain number being assigned to each corporation at the beginning of the game. Battles mostly took place around the CV located in the center; that was embedded within an asteroid. The arena was quite big, giving defenders time to prepare to defend a CV; it took roughly an hour to cross the entire asteroid belt at full speed. In addition, 14 floating space platform turrets defended each CV. Teamwork was essential in this game - to capture a CV, you needed to have two players volunteer to pilot a slow, defenseless ship that carried the equipment necessary to capture a CV. This ship was also a favorite of defenders to blow up; thus these ships required escort. To make life difficult, mines could be dropped. These could be destroyed, but they were very hard to see. Quite an innovative game with impressive network code; it was playable on a 33.6k modem acceptably. With support for at least 50 players per server, virtually lagless gameplay, a locational damage system, 3D-accelerated graphics that can still hold their own in 2006 and software graphics that could blaze along at 600x480 on a sub-100MHZ Pentium, it was incomprehensibly ahead of its time for the late 90's. The game consisted of an infinite field of space, with 13 Carrier Vessels grouped closely in the center, all of which were devided between three corporations; Osis, Hast, and Vaught. The object was to ally with a specific corporation and capture every rival Carrier Vessel in space by launching crew-killing robots into its cargo hold from a FAS-2B "Penetrator" assault ship. Of course, with 7 other ships to pilot and each Carrier Vessel's armada of automated defense drones, it was much easier typed than done. When one coproration owned all the Carrier Vessels, the game would reset and start over. Depending on the sheer feral viciousness of the players, matches could last minutes or span days. A single pilot defending one Carrier Vessel against multiple attackers for 5+ hours wasn't an uncommon sight. The game continued until around late 1998, when it was temporarily closed down pending Interactive Magic Online's partnership with AOL. Ater a brief resurrection in April of 2000 that saw Raider Wars recoded to run through the newly renamed Imagic Entertainment Network's awful front-end software and its perfectly good netcode replaced by a substitute that rendered it literally unplayable from lag, it was once again shut down. In 2001, an attempt to make an opensource clone of Raider Wars called FreeRaider was made, but the project collapsed due to its developers being severly out of sync with eachother. However, if anyone wants to continue it, the source is still freely available.

Red Baron II Dynamix, Inc. / Sierra On-Line, Inc. [top]

The much anticipated sequel to the first Red Baron, this game allows you to take to the skies once again in actual World War I aircraft. You are allowed to fly a wide variety of fighter craft (scouts, as they were called) from both sides in "instant action," single mission, and campaign modes. The campaign mode features a dynamic war front that is always changing based on the actions of you, your squadron, and all the other squadrons positioned along the Front. The basic idea stays true to the original Red Baron, but with improved graphics, more realistic flight models, smarter AI, and a much larger, vibrant game world

Skrap (cancelled) Neuronware Entertainment [top]

A post-industrial wasteland. Evil corporations have completely taken over the world. You are a member of a group of rebels who have recently stolen two pieces of state-of-the-art tech that may very well be the keys to toppling this inhuman regime: a mobile weapon/vehicle factory and a helicopter. You play as the pilot of the helicopter. You have a Vulcan cannon machine gun and rockets which you could upgrade to particle cannons later on. You could command the factory to produce tanks by pressing '1'. The tanks were fairly weak but they were cheap and could fire at both air and ground targets. Pressing '2' produced monster truck looking cars that cost more and could only fire at ground targets but had sturdier armor. Pressing '0' commanded the factory to send out a fuel truck that served as a suicide bomb. Your base started at one end of a winding road and at the other was an enemy base. The enemy base periodically sends out tanks and occasionally a helicopter. You simply had to blow up the enemy base. The enemy tanks and choppers are always stronger than yours so you have to play escort and/or advance scout. Once you all make it to the enemy base the tanks sit there, shooting anyone that comes out. The tanks and your chopper don't have enough firepower to destroy the base by yourselves. For that you have to decide when to send a fuel truck. It drives all the way up the winding road and into the gaping black entrance of the base and blows up. Level Clear!!! On the other hand, there's a zeppelin that circles every level with a trailing advertisement like the Goodyear blimp. If you shot it down at the right time, the blimp would descend and explode on the base serving as a substitute fuel truck! Only a demo was produced as the full game was never released.

Speedboat Attack Criterion Studios, Driver-Inter, Ltd. / Telstar Electronic Studios Ltd. [top]

In this race-and-chase speedboat thriller, your only real goal is to reach the finish line first. If you can't speed past the competing boats, just blast them out of the way. Watch out though, because they'll come back at you their guns blazing, too. Floating mines, enemy commandos, icebergs, islands, and errant spectators will get in your path and slow you down. Be sure to collect extra weapons and health, use the hidden short cuts to confound your opponents, and even call in the helicopter for help along the way. Fast and furious driving is essential, but in this racing shooter you'll also need a good defensive and offensive strategy to obtain ultimate success. Once the player has mastered all of the game's ten courses, he or she can go for the championship against more difficult opponents in harrowing conditions, or take on real human opponents across the Internet in a head-to-head competition. There are five choices of boats to choose from, each with distinct characteristics of maneuvers, plus ten different tracks with varying weather conditions: at night, morning or in dense fog. There's three modes of play: "Arcade," "Championship," and "Time Trial". It has network support for up to six players.

Star Merc Diversions Software, Inc. [top]

This is a single-player, first-person, space shooter where the object of the game is to achieve a score high enough to be recorded on the high score table. The player takes the role of a mercenary hired to keep the space lanes clear. This means dropping into sector after sector of space and destroying any ship that is present. The limitations are that the canon will overheat if overused and that each sector jump uses fuel which must be replenished by visiting a star base. In combat there is the tactical scanner which looks like a red radar screen. This gives an indication of the position and number of enemy ships and, when combined with target direction indicators in the targeting window, help the player blast the bad guys. The game is played out in the cockpit of the ship and is entirely mouse controlled. The mouse functions in two ways. In 'ship' mode moving the mouse steers the ship while the left mouse button fires the canon. The left mouse button toggles between this mode and 'cockpit' mode in which the player can select either the 'Eject' button to end the game or the 'NavTrack' screen in which the player selects the next sector to jump to.

Star Wars: X-Wing Vs. Tie Fighter Totally Games, Inc. / LucasArts Entertainment Company LLC [top]

Technically superior to its two predecessors, XvT runs on Windows, requires a joystick (the others could be played with a mouse), features a CD audio soundtrack, supports high resolution graphics, brings texture mapping to the ship models of the in-flight game engine, includes robust multiplayer options for up to eight players in free-for-all, team-based, and cooperative play modes, and has a sophisticated pilot and mission selection system that tracks the player's points and awards. The player also has the ability to choose for each mission which squadron he or she wants to fly in (e.g. either the Y-wings that disable a ship for capture or the X-wings that support them), his or her specific ship type, and the ship's armaments. Response to the game was mixed. It is the only part of the series designed almost exclusively for multiplayer and/or personal practice only; it lacks a storyline and numerous cutscenes. While the gameplay was universally praised as an exceptional experience (especially for multiplayer), the lack of a story was strongly criticized by many fans. "X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter: Flight School" included 14 sample missions from the full game.

Due to the lack of a story in the original game being strongly criticized by many fans, Totally Games realized that strong storylines were a major reason for the earlier games' success. They then released this expansion which added a storyline that included the best cutscenes the series had yet seen. Apart from new battles and missions, this features a Rebel and an Imperial campaign of 15 missions each, along with cutscenes that advance the story. Unique for the time, and rarely matched since, the campaigns supported 8-player cooperative play. Both campaigns revolve around the same series of events, but with alternate endings. "Spreading the Rebellion" — Features the evacuation of a base, an attack against the Empire, and the capture of an Imperial Interdictor Cruiser. The campaign ends with an assault on the Super Star Destroyer Vengeance. "Imperial Task Force Vengeance" — The player flies as a member of the elite Avenger squadron under the leadership of Admiral Senn. The missions are similar to those from the Rebel's campaign. The campaign ends with the destruction of a Rebel factory. The pack also adds B-wings as a pilotable craft, along with other vessels that are lacking from the original game.

Stellar Mercenaries Virtual Adventures Inc. / Infogrames Inc. [top]

This is a futuristic 3D space combat and race simulator video game for Windows 95 with multiplayer support. The game was released in four different languages: English, French, German and Spanish. The goal of the game is to become the highest ranking mercenary: Fleet Admiral. The higher the rank, the more access to have some weapons, maximum energy and generators which will help the player to complete the missions more easily. By completing missions, player can accumulate credits which will get the player in higher ranks. The ranks are given/removed at the end of a mission. If the cumulative credits are higher than 5000 and the mission is completed, player gets a higher rank. On the other hand, if the credits are below zero and the mission is a failure, player will lose a rank. If player starts a deathmatch game, only the credits are accounted for since there is no mission objectives. All the credits are saved and cumulated at each and every mission. The game contains different types of scenarios: space combat, surface missions and racing. It was originally supposed to be available online through 'Oceanline' but the network closed down before it happened. So Infogrames sold the game as a single player game.

Sub Culture Criterion Studios / Ubi Soft Entertainment Software [top]

This a submarine action/adventure computer game is a distant relative of Elite. The player takes the role of a member of the ultra-tiny race that lives on the ocean floor. Navigate a sub, trade among the different enclaves, do a little combat, and encounter the different missions and special plots. When you start the game, you discover that the Bohines, a nation in the game, are at war with the Prochas, another nation. To survive and prosper, you can engage in various mining or salvage operations, recovering enormous bottlecaps, cigarette butts, thorium crystals, and pearls, all of which are valuable commodities sellable in cities. However, one must watch out, as both mutant fish and dastardly Pirate subs lie in wait for the unsuspecting. Once the player has built up enough cash, they can begin to exploit a form of 'stock market' in which various commodities can be purchased and resold at other locations or times for higher prices. This was one of the very first games to support both Direct3D and the most popular 3D-accelerators of the era straight out-of-the-box. Not only is there support for software rendering and Direct3D, but also native 3Dfx Glide, Rendition Verite RRedline and PowerVR PowerSGL.

Tanarus Verant Interactive / Sony Interactive Studios America [top]

Tanarus is an online exclusive action game with tanks. Before the game starts the player has to choose a difficulty setting which affects the available arenas and his human opponents. Then there is the selection of the tank; there are five tanks to choose which differ in speed, armory and weaponry. The last decision to be made is the equipment like canons, rocket launchers or energy guns. The most important choice is the battery because every laser shot and every movement lowers its charge. When the charge is consumed the tank moves with 30% of its normal speed. At the own base serves as a maintenance area, which means the tank can be repaired or completely replaced and the battery can be replenished. Then the game itself begins. The goal is simple: Blast the enemy into little pieces, either in deathmatch, a team battle or a duel. There are up to four factions in one area which all have a flag in their base. When catching one of them and bringing it to the own base the player gets points which result in a better rank. The arenas are cities with buildings, ramps and streets. The mouse is not supported, the game is either played with the keyboard or a joystick. The editor allows to build own areas which can be played with other paying customers when the developer approves them. Yes, to play the game there is a monthly fee which has to payed. However there is also a free version which offers two arenas and one tank. It was later added as part of the Station Pass package offered by Sony Online Entertainment to their online games site. On May 25, 2007 it was made free. On June 10, 2010, the game was officially shut down.

Team 47 GoMan / Watchy: A Goman Adventure Coconuts Japan Ent. / 47-Tek / Software Solutions [top]

The dark planetoid Nemesis, on a collision course with Earth, was destroyed to prevent the destruction of our planet. Seemingly harmless fragments of the shattered planetoid penetrated the atmosphere and implanted themselves in the earth. Years later, the fragments surprised scientists as they grew and morphed into giant, horrible monsters bent on eradicating the human race. The United Earth Taskforce established Team 47 GOMAN, a group of giant armored robots, to combat the Children of Nemesis. From a cavity in the chest of each warrior, human pilots control their actions. The pilots are a highly skilled group of martial artists who use hand to hand combat as well as medium-distance weapons to counter the monsters' attacks. Each mech is equipped with specialized armor and weapons such as a plasma harpoon, a photon hook and laser cannons. Battles among Team 47 GOMAN mech warriors and the organic monsters of Nemesis occur in six geographic locales: the Mojave Desert; San Francisco; the Hawaiian Islands; Tokyo; Denver and New York. The player must select the appropriate characters to battle monsters such as Roggosh, the desert dweller; Kothos, the mountain dweller and Gaingris, the nightmarish all-terrain monster. The player must conquer his adversaries and move on to the next locale, meeting a different monster in each territory. He must defend the planet from the monsters while protecting the buildings, mountains and other structures that may be in the way. Props such as buildings, boulders, cars, hovercrafts and power stations can actually be picked up and tossed. The mechs stand knee deep in the forest as they stomp around, seeking their opponents.

TigerShark n-Space / GT Interactive [top]

2060 A.D. The Red Menace has resurfaced. The sea boils with submarines and battlecruisers, blood and oil. The skies are dark with enemy birds. TigerShark has been deployed. A fully-loaded subfoil prototype. Forged for war. Built for speed. Dead set on destruction. Underwater. And over it. TigerShark is hungry. The feeding frenzy is about to begin. This is an above-average shooter that is better known on the Playstation console. It pits you against the entire Russian army who is intent on conquering Japan, which has been severely flooded thanks to massive earthquakes as a result of a geothermal test gone awry. Your job is to pilot a futuristic plane/submarine hybrid craft and fight the Russians above and below the charred remains of Japan, in well-designed but pixellated 3D worlds. Each of the 10 levels (including one training mission) gives you multiple ground targets that range from huge military installations to radars. Along the way, you must destroy Russia's submarines, battle cruisers, and other ships. Most of your targets are underwater, but you will need to surface to fight opponents who have the uncanny ability of being able to shoot at you from the surface. Despite pixellated graphics and strange-looking white fogs on the ground-level landscapes, Tigershark is quite fun. There are multiple views you can toggle, lots of weapons, and hundreds of enemies. The combination of underwater and surface gives the game a nice change of pace from the usual space-only or underwater-only titles, and zipping around above and below the waves is quite exciting. The game places too much emphasis on completing objectives, but there is still plenty of frenzied, nonstop combat.

Virtual On: Cybertroopers Sega Entertainment [top]

Sega took the basic one-on-one fighting game premise and applied it to giant robots with giant guns to create a one-on-one 3D Mech shooter that has garnered immense popularity in arcades all across the world before being ported to the PC. From the nimble, feminine Fei-Yen to the hulking, hammer-toting Dorkas, each of the eight selectable Virtual On cyber troopers is distinctive and interesting. A far cry from the ungainly, overheating mechs you may be used to, these 'bots are blessed with lifelike agility and personality exemplified through highly detailed, colorful polygonal models. Watching the cyber troopers sprint around the battlefield and take to the skies as they unleash flurries of guided missiles upon one another is truly a sight to behold. You take on the opponent using your three progressively powerful weapon systems to try and blow him to smithereens. You can leap behind terrain for cover or rush toward him to deliver a deadly point-blank assault. The eight robots are fairly balanced and demand considerably different fighting strategies, adding considerable replay life to the game. There are 10 different arenas with their own layout and traps. Proceed through the entire campaign via subjecting yourself to "virtual training" and then facing off for the real thing against the other computer controlled droids, or go against a human opponent in multiplayer combat over Lan, modem, serial link or the same computer with split screen display.

Wing Commander: Prophecy ORIGIN Systems, Inc. / Electronic Arts, Inc. [top]

Following the Border Worlds conflict of Wing Commander IV, the galaxy is once more at peace. Colonel Christopher Blair, hero of the Confederation has transferred into the Naval Forces. Blair helps design the TCS Midway, a state-of-the-art multi-role carrier that will help keep order during the Confederation's new peacetime. The luxury of peace allows Confed to retire many older pilots and assign younger pilots to piloting roles. Lance Casey and his friend Max "Maestro" Garrett are two such pilots, fresh from the academy, transferred aboard the TCS Midway along with several others for its maiden voyage along the borders of Confed Space. But soon into the mission, the Midway intercepts a distress call from the Kilrathi, the remains of a race of cat-like warriors who lost the war with the Confederation. This is a space combat simulator. Players take the role of Lance Casey on his new assignment aboard the ship. The player can click various hotspots aboard the ship to engage in non-interactive FMV conversations with shipboard personnel. By entering the briefing room, players can receive full instructions on their next mission. Space Combat begins by launching from the TCS Midway carrier, and are displayed as first-person perspective inside the cockpit, similar to the rest of the Wing Commander series. Mission objectives vary between escort duties, patrol missions, search and destroy or defense of the TCS Midway herself. Depending on the ship being flown for the particular mission, the player will be able to switch between guns, missiles, torpedoes and mines with which to combat the enemy. The player, as wing commander, can give orders to nearby wingmen and communicate with any other ship. After each mission, the player must return to dock with the TCS Midway and will receive a mission performance rating.

Age of Dragon / Yongsegi Jin Young Technology [top]

From the same team that made the 3D adventure Morbid comes this entirely different story. Reminiscent of Dragon Spirit, a blue dragon is steered through a vertically scrolling shoot 'em up. It has three weapons at its disposal, a standard straight shot, a spreadshot and homing projectiles. Each of the three gets upgraded with use, but taking hits brings them down again much quicker than they rise up. The homing weapon is vastly superior to the others, though, at least after it's fully upgraded, when it dominates almost the entire screen. Still the game remains ridiculously hard at all times, mostly because each death sets the player back to the very beginning of a stage, even wehn losing against a boss. When dying at one of the higher stages, or even just getting the weapons weakened too much, one might as well restart the game. The dragon is much too slow to dodge most of the bullets, and often the only way is to kill the enemies first, which can't be achieved with a low grade pea shooter.

Alien Ambush Starlight Company / SGN [top]

At different times, on different platforms came out dozens of games like Space Invaders, and it is difficult to stand out on their background and to come up with something new. This is an arcade conversion of 1981's Astro Blaster by Sega with only one type of weapon and no bonuses, but the features in the game are still there. So, our spaceship shoots wave after wave of aliens, and its movement is limited to the bottom of the screen. There's a wide variety of enemies in various shapes and sizes . Aliens in different waves are flying not only from the top side of the screen, but can move in zigzags, and diagonally, trying to board our ship. But the main difficulty is that the developers have come up with the scale of fuel, and it decreases with catastrophic speed. After the destruction of the two waves of alien attacks comes on top of some asteroids, and only then a tanker, which you need to dock with (in this case, the ship is separated from the bottom of the screen). In order not to lose life due to complete loss of fuel, there is one way out - as soon as possible kill enemies in time to refuel. Readout of the waves in the game is not conducted; in the upper left corner of the screen it shows the score of points shown on the scale and the number of remaining enemies. Spare the lives of all three. Judging by the seven-digit number for the points (for example - the destruction of the first wave brings 2000) levels in the game are a lot, but to pass them all is problematic. The graphics are pretty decent and the whole game is accompanied by cheerful music. It can be recommended to fans of challenging games of this genre. It is quite fun gameplay, plus - you want to know what enemies will be presented by the developers in the next wave.

Axia Dungeon Dwellers Design [top]

Move around in space in 360 degrees of freedom. Take on missions as a bounty hunter, blow up ships, asteroids, etc... and get cash all while revealing an evil plot. The player's ship appears stationary on the screen while the rest of the universe moves around the ship. You play a bounty hunter who is called in after hostile aliens start attacking ships in the asteroid belt. The aliens have an array of different types of ships, some of which can only shoot forwards and others can only shoot backwards. Money is awarded for destroying ships and asteroids, and power-ups and bonuses are sometimes hidden in the asteroids. One of the hidden bonuses is a trip to the time-limited bonus area, where you try destroy as much fruit as possible before time runs out. Every 5 levels, the player enters a store where upgrades can be purchased for the ship, such as superior weapons, shields, and engines. An interesting gameplay element is the inclusion of a radar screen that is seamlessly projected onto the playing area (a heads-up-display), which is extremely useful, though it can be hard to see through the action and background at times. If you can survive long enough to get a few upgrades and see the variety of enemy ships, this game can be quite a lot of fun, and the soundtrack isn't half bad. There are over 500 levels in this game.

There are 12 bosses which are kinds of marine life: "arowana," "shrimp," "Shark," "Monocentris japonica," "octopus", "angler", "Striped Shrimpfish", "starfish", "turtle", "moray eels", "seahorse", "ammonite" which have a variety of attacks.

CHAMP Invaders ChamProgramming Corporation [top]

This is a DOS shareware remake of the classic Space Invaders arcade machine. Like the other games in CHAMProgramming's series of arcade remakes, it closely emulates the original with three game modes: The original "Classic" mode, the "Deluxe" mode and the enhanced "Champ" mode. The "Classic" mode plays and feels much like the arcade machine, with very similar graphics, sound and gameplay -- moving left and right at the bottom of the screen, shooting up at a bunch of nasty alien dropping bombs, protected by three quickly degrading shields... You know it, or should! The "Deluxe" mode has the same graphics as the "Classics" version, but adds more features and an intermission. The "Champ" mode is an upgraded version of the classic game, featuring colourful VGA graphics, different types of aliens (some which break out of the formation and attack, others who take more than one shot to destroy, etc.), a much more dangerous UFO and more powerful weapons (you can shoot fireballs, destroying an entire column, and launch guided missiles). Finally, the game features a variety of options -- one or two player modes, three difficulty settings, adjustable game speed, input by keyboard, mouse or joystick (Champ even released a "Champ cable" that allowed you to play the game with digital joysticks), and a high score table to round it all off.

Drone Pixelsplash Software, Xtreme Games [top]

Drone is a two-dimensional vertical scrolling shooter with pre-rendered 3D graphics. An evil alien race has penetrated Earth's security system, and has launched six deadly nuclear missiles - the game's titular "Drones" - targeting major populations worldwide. Previous attempts to stop the Drones have failed due to the numerous amount of alien ships escorting the nuclear missiles. The player assumes the role of a pilot whose objective is to navigate through six different worlds to carefully disarm all of these missiles, doing battle with as many swarms of alien ships as possible along the way. The player's ship is loaded with two flavours of weaponry: rapid-fire exploding-tip missiles, which suffice for destroying the various enemy ships; and the homing probe and stinger missiles. The red stinger missiles, which are useful for taking out bigger groups of ships, automatically lock on to the closest target in the player's vicinity. When launched, these missiles head for the locked target and detonate large explosions. On the other hand, the blue probe missiles are used for disarming the Drones at the end of each level. These missiles have built-in technology designed to decrypt the codes that guide the Drones. Once the decryption process is done, the probes gain control over the Drones' internal circuitry systems and do interaction akin to that of a "disarm" signal from the menacing alien mothership. The player's ship also has a shield which, once activated, will gain the player invulnerability to enemy fire. The shield has limited energy, though, and will not be reusable until a certain amount of time is taken for it to recharge. Disarming a Drone will award the player 500 points, and the game will present you with praise from an unnamed officer. Accidentally hitting the Drones with any weaponry other than the blue probes, however, will result in a nuclear detonation killing the entire population in the current area. This will also sentence the player to a penalty of 1000 points off of his/her score counter. The player's progress is marked using a heads-up display at the left of the screen which represents how many Drones you have disarmed or detonated via six icons. The Drone on the current level is outlined by a green box. Blue Drone icons signify disarmed Drones; red ones signify detonated Drones. Preceding the Drones on every level is a boss enemy that can only be successfully destroyed using the red stinger missiles. Each of these bosses has a different form of protection against their weak areas, however, and must be shot at with the standard exploding-tip missiles before the stinger can be launched into the weak area. The only exception to this is the boss on level 2, the Gemini, which must be taken down by launching multiple stingers at both its left and right sides (the amount of stingers to be launched depends on the difficulty level). If (and only if) all six of the Drones are successfully disarmed, the player has to face wits with the large alien mothership. The mothership has a rotating shield with doors that it can launch fireballs through. The player is vulnerable to these fireballs even when the shield is activated. When a red stinger missiles is launched into an open door, one of the mothership's engines explodes. This must be repeated two more times in order to completely destroy the mothership and win the game. Originally a DOS release, it was converted to Windows by Xtreme Games in 1999 and licensed to eGames for release on some of their CD-ROM collections (Master's Edition 151, Space Arcade Collection, etc.)

Fourth Generation, The D'India Software / Webfoot Technologies [top]

This is a decent side-scrolling shooter from Webfoot that looks good, plays good, but unfortunately is too repetitive to go up against the likes of Gradius. The game can be played in either a single or two-player mode (hotseat), with mouse, keyboard, or joystick. You will be attracted by excellent VGA backgrounds that give good illusions of three-dimensional depth, and the wide variety of weapons and power-ups you can upgrade your ship with. However, enemy ship designs are far too repetitive, the "boss" ships are not much more inspiring, and the computer doesn't put up much of a challenging fight. If you are new to the shooter genre and want to try a decent shareware game, it fits the bill - for a little while until you find out how repetitive it is.

Gradius Deluxe Pack Konami Corporation [top]

This pack contains both the arcade classic shmups Gradius I and II, ported to Windows 95. Story: the Bacterians are attacking the planet Gradius, and in a state-of-the-art fighter ship you have to stop them. Both games have similar gameplay and graphics, with only different music and level layout setting them apart. Each of these side-scrolling shooters has over a dozen levels each, all of which are completely unique. There are no enemy types that are re-used from level to level (except for the boss who is the same in every level). You can collect powerups that provide things like extra speed, laser shots, target-seeking missiles, shields, etc. While there have been many small modernizing touches made to the games, there is still no ability to save. Be prepared to set aside a considerable amount of time to finish in one go. It contains a CG-movie introduction, running a couple of minutes long, showcasing the various aspects of the Gradius series that have appeared in its various incarnations.

Layer Section Taito Corporation / Gamebank, CyberFront Corporation, Mediakite [top]

This is the first game in the acclaimed shmup trilogy first on arcades in 1994 (named Rayforce or Galactic Attack on consoles) which was followed by Raystorm and RayCrisis. There are seven levels in this shooter to play, ranging from battles in the atmosphere of planets to battling over mountain ranges, each with their own standard huge bosses at the end of each of these levels. The player takes control of a starfighter called the RVA-818 X-LAY, out to destroy any opposing forces. The story has the future of Earth governments gathering together to construct a massive super computer called Con-Human to help with the planet's environment, providing nutrients to the earth and caring for the ecosystem. However, a cloned human is linked with the system and makes Con-Human a sentient being. The system eventually becomes insane and starts to create natural disasters, wiping all nearly all of mankind and destroying the ecosystem, driving the survivors into space to develop colonies on other planets. Con-Human then makes Earth into a giant fortress and is assembling a massive armada to destroy the remaining survivors, but before it can attack, the survivors amass a first strike in order to reclaim the Earth. The goal is to fly around in the level, using the primary laser weapon to destroy various enemies flying in and out of the screen. Players can upgrade this weapon by collecting "L" icons floating around when enough enemies are destroyed. There is also a secondary weapon, a lock-on missile launcher, that has the ability to fire upon eight different ground enemies at once.

PureVex Nec [top]

PureVex, a space shooter much like like Banpresto's Macross, Konami's Gradius, or Square's Einhander. Of course, there is no riveting storyline as it is the "one ship against a whole armada of bad guys." BUT it does not matter. From the first level, you're flying non-stop without any time to pause.

Raiden II Seibu Kaihatsu Inc. / GameBank Corp., CyberFront [top]

This is an excellent sequel to Raiden, one of the best shoot em-ups ever made. The plot picks up where Raiden left off. It's been 3 years since you utterly destroyed the alien forces and sent the survivors packing. But the angry stragglers, bent on revenge, returned to their planet and raised a vicious army. Now they're back, tougher, meaner and better armed than before. To turn the tide of battle, the members of Earth's Think Tank regroup, and develop an even more powerful and maneuverable fighter craft... and guess who they put in the cockpit? It has all the addictive gameplay of its predecessor, this time with even sharper graphics and a rocking soundtrack. The graphics are very more detailed, with excellent 3D effects (e.g. flying enemies cast shadows on the ground, so you could distinguish them from ground-based enemies). In contrast to most shoot em-ups where enemies you destroy just blow up and disapear without a trace, enemies blow up, turn into a wreckage, plummet to the ground, and only then explode on impact. This causes a lot of debris to fly around the screen, which in turn cause nice ripple effects on the grass and even on the water once they land - very, very nice. Background graphics are also excellent, especially in the volcanoes levels. In addition to the myriad of power-ups and weapons that made Raiden a classic, thisI features a powerful new weapon called the Plasma Laser, and new Cluster Bombs: unique defenses that make it nearly invincible against the aliens... but only if you are nimble, of course. No doubt the best weapon in the game, the Plasma Laser homes in on the target, and locks on it until you move or it blows up. The enemy bosses are tougher than in Raiden, so even joystick experts will find a nice challenge in this one. Overall, it's a polished and addictive vertical shooter in every respect.. a must have for all action fans!

Reap, The Housemarque Ltd. / Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. [top]

The Reap is a classic arcade shooter in Zaxxon style. The game has 4 stages. First you shoot enemies in an Arctic oriented scenery. Next you fly through the deep oceans, wherein between shipwrecks and fish bones are sharks and submarines waiting for you. After this, there comes a canyon-desert stage. Last but not least you fight your enemies in a skyscraper city. Every stage has two or three levels. Altogether there are 10 levels. Your ship can get 5 weapon systems and all of them can be upgraded three times. The biggest weapon is a rocket blaster. You can also find bombs or invulnerability shields. It's one of the best-looking shooters ever released, and features stunning visual effects and huge 3D-modeled levels. Each world plays host to superb full screen animations. Unique light sourcing creates an ambient background atmosphere and highlights an attention to background detail seldom seen in PC entertainment software. But graphics, as countless examples have shown, cannot save a game if it is no fun to play. Fortunately, The Reap not only lives up to Housemarque's early reputation as maker of Stardust games, but also exceeds it with even better graphics, bigger worlds, and more furious action. Although four worlds may sound too few for a SHMUP game, each world is so large and so difficult that it will take expert gamers a few hours (and blistered thumbs) to get through it. Dozens of special effects and a catchy soundtrack round off this highly-polished game that is a good example of how good-looking a PC game can be without sacrificing speed or playability - and that is no small feat given 1997 hardware.

Reflection Ysuer (Siter Skain) [top]

This is a vertically scrolling shooter developed by Ysuer, the original name of Siter Skain. This was the prototype for the later Siter Skain game, RefleX, and thus the two share many similarities. While Kamui was in development or shortly after it was developed, RefleX was starting to be created. However, information on RefleX's further development ceased to be posted until it was released with little warning several years after Kamui. Reflection itself is only 3 stages long and contains the 3 bosses associated with RefleX, although the last boss is not named. The fighter is assumed to be a Phoenix Mk. 1 or it is the original concept of the Phoenix Mk. 2. In this version, the weapons are somewhat different in appearance as missiles are included in the layout but are simply another component of the energy system.

TerraFire / Enemy Star ORT Software / Midas Interactive Entertainment [top]

In this arcade space shooter, blast your ship through heavily defended underground caverns, past wind tunnels, fire-walls and subterranean lakes. Recover stolen nuclear pods using your ship's tractor beam and carry them back to the planet surface and beyond into hyperspace. The game has raytraced graphics and 360 degree parallax scrolling. The game includes 27 different stages (including 6 bonus), divided into 5 different worlds. It has rendered graphics, several planes of scrolling, and an inertia effect. At the beginning of each game, you can choose the difficulty level between 4 different ones. The goal in regular levels is to penetrate the bunker, kill or avoid enemy defense forces, retrieve the aforementioned nuke and evacuate before time runs out. There are several upgrades scattered around the level, however the games becomes harder when you drag the nuke to the surface, because it destabilizes your ship's movement and hitting the wall costs energy. Bonus levels are based on a classic arcade game Asteroids and require you to destroy piece by piece the huge asteroid flying over the playfield. During the course of the games we can record our situation to get predisposed to using items. It was later released in 2005 as freeware.

Twin Lazers Stars Factory / Stratos [top]

This is a rare Spanish shmup partly in English. Published in an annex to a certain local magazine about computer games. Narrative texts (as opposed to biographies of heroes and interface) are presented in Spanish. The action takes place in 2157, the people of the colonized space, however, are faced with hostile aliens which destroyed the capital and human colonies and Neositi attackers then went to Earth. The player is invited to choose a protagonist from two pilots - a man or a girl with obsessive desire for revenge for the aliens killed the girl's parents - and sitting behind the wheel of a futuristic fighter (each of the characters has his own), you go to destroy a variety of enemies. The species are many adversaries, the number of them are also quite high (at a level of complexity, of which there are three); for the most part it is all sorts of types of flying ships. The many opponents emit their ammunition and are flying at very strange paths. Some of the issued charges remain on the screen after the death of their "parents" for a few seconds, trying to "get" you. Swarms of certain types of enemies approaching you can do "arc reversal" and attack you from the rear. In the middle and end of each level will face a battle with the boss, with the first of them being giant insects! The fighter has a certain margin of safety, and several "lives". Of course, there are also bonuses: green circles with a red dot in the middle will restore "health", a heart gives an extra "life", a white "eye" gives an assistant in the form of small Frisbee, with you attacking enemies (almost at the beginning of the first level you can take two of these helpers). You will soon be able to find new weapons and bonus, temporarily reinforcing the "base" fire. The greatest pleasure is the high quality hand-drawn graphics, a lot of beautiful effects, explosions and really diverse backgrounds locations: tropical village, gloomy cave, open space with a variety of objects, alien city, etc. However, the game is pretty run of the mill and not that difficult.

V-Wing Sebastian Aaltonen / Simo Siiria [top]

This is one of the best "cavefliers" games ever made. Cavefliers is an action sub-genre that was very popular in Finland in the early 1990s, inspiring many authors to release shareware and freeware cavefliers of their own. The idea behind the game is the same as in every other caveflier: maneuver a small ship in tight caverns, blasting other ships to smithereens with a formidable arsenal weapons while fighting gravity and being careful not to hit the terrain. The ships human players (including you) control in the game are called 'V-Wings,' while those controlled by the computer are called 'H-Wings.' Your ship comes equipped with a standard gun and a secondary weapon which can be changed at the start of every fight. The standard gun has unlimited ammo, but the secondary weapon requires reloading once the ammo runs out. You can get more ammo and repair any damage your ship sustains on a 'pad,' which you of course must find first. Although the shareware version includes only 5 weapons and two levels, the registered version (for download here) offers many more weapons and levels, as well as settings that allow you to change just about every aspect of the game. The graphics are inferior to Tappo II, but the fluid action, huge levels, and very well-designed levels more than make up for the lack of graphical detail. The game even includes a level editor you can use to design your own levels in which to blast friends. If you enjoy cavefliers or shoot 'em ups in general, V-Wing is definitely well worth your time. This download is v1.91 registered, which includes gun terrets.

Xadlak Plus Sprite [top]

Die! Die! Die! Death surrounds you in this crazy-hard scrolling shooter. Really nice horizontal 2d shmup with great music and nicely drawn graphics. It features excellent illusion of depth, parallax scrolling, and plenty of varied stages, cool enemies and backdrops. However, this game is super difficult. One hit and you are dead and each time you die you are reset back to an earlier checkpoint, and there and not many checkpoints! It feels like a lost pc engine game (sort of like Rayxanber), supports gamepads, and supports full-screen with smooth scrolling. Choose from overboost and 3x types of armor to blaze through stages. Choose stages as well as a forgiving easier difficulty (YUTORI mode). You have three different powerups for your ship, all providing different types of screen coverage and firepower. These powerups have an energy bar that, once it runs out, will make the weapon fire erratically until you can destroy more targets in succession to recharge it. On top of that, you have a boost option to move faster in any direction, which is very risky once you factor that there are loads of hazards and obstacles in the stages. It can still be useful to dodge some otherwise impossible to escape barrages. Enemy ships are well-designed, and the "boss" ships are particularly memorable. Power-ups are very neat, especially the ship add-on you can use in the last level. Definitely worth it for fans of the style.
