Yes folks, this game was very impressive, in many ways. It was one of my first ST games so you can imagine my eyes popping out of my head back then. The complexity of the simulated solar system is enormous for those days, an entire system with several planets (and their tunnel systems) incl. the sun itself, you've had all the freedom to fly a around everywhere and there was not a single loading break in between. And, as much as I know, it was the very fist Dual Format game, meaning that the same disk would run in the Atari ST AND the Amiga. A very remarkable game it is, an all-times evergreen.

I liked the graphic upgrade (I could see what i'm doing in this one). Still seemed complex though.

Another of the great all time ST classics. Not as big a hit as it should have been, but the 3D graphics were amazing for a period when there was no 3D hardware.

Great game!! I don't know why the other people here had problems with understanding what this game is about. There's a kind of resistance in the tunnels of the 3rd planet and they ask you to deliver things to build a neutron-bomb... Then you fly (and shoot) around in the planetary system and get them and you have to hurry up because at the end of the planetary system a huge space station is being built... What else? Extremely fast 3D grafix, great title music, very addictive.

Never understood what was going on in this game, but along with Andreas, enjoyed just flying around and wrecking things! The animations on some of the (numerous) creatures and robots were pretty amazing at the time - enough for Jez San and his team to create a 'gallery' where you could look at each polygon object in great detail!

What? No screenshot? This is, without a doubt, beyond any compare, the single best 3D poly game ever created in the history of man..

Just a note - i think Jez San is a heavyweight in the IT market nowadays

Really cool game. Quite impressive 3d graphics for that time. I especially enjoyed the tunnels that went through some of the planets. Too bad it was so damn difficult though, I never really accompished any of the main objectives. Still, I liked just flying around and blowing things up.

This is a classic game, a space game similar in style to the Mercenary games, but with shooting. Good graphics and sound, but a bit difficult as I remember...
