StarFighter 3000 Other Worlds
The ultimate RISC OS games is back and has been improved for the new generation of RISC OS computers. Now supplied in DVD case with colour printed manual.
Welcome to Star Fighter 3000, The highest rated gameshow ever on a Fednet universal satellite channel. The year is 3037, and peak-time TV has acquired its most successful audience participation show ever. A result of the intensified battle for advertising revenue and military hardware between the two rival broadcasting companies, Fednet and TrashTV, lucky viewers were selected from thousands of applicants to take part in the Star Fighter UEP (Ultimate Expansion Programme).
The idea was simple ... Assemble an enormous military attack force around progressively difficult strategic locations (mostly belonging to TrashTV), invite viewers to take part in the ensuing battle, and broadcast the results ...unfortunately, the battle soon escalated into a universal conflict. TrashTV quickly made a number of allies, (mainly on the promise of cheap advertising), each being a powerful military force in the galaxy.
It's your job to eliminate the opposition, and everybody else that stands in the way of Fednet's rightful position as the only purveyor of quality entertainment through the known universe. Destroy their buildings, Exterminate their armies, Grind them into the dust, all for points and prizes.
So what's new in this release?
This release of StarFighter (V2) has a number of changes when compared with the original FEDNET release. Unlike the freely available patches for StarFighter this version has been re-compiled using the original sources.
But not only does Other Worlds include StarFighter 3000 you also get three other superb classic games for RISCOS.
Start your battle in a first world war tank, move on to propeller aircraft, then jet fighters and finally into the future in this superb battle game.
The classic space trading and combat game. Start from Lave and explore the entire universe avoiding, or even killing, pirates and Thargoids on the way. Earn your fortune in deep space!
Explore the galaxy, complete your missions, destroy the enemy. Earn cash to upgrade your ship to improve its speed and firepower. A truly massive and engrosing game from Visions of the Impossible.
SunBurst is a 2D shoot-em-up-come-Elite style game where you must fly a spaceship around 4 different galaxies to eventually stop an alien race from taking over. You traverse galaxies gaining money by trading where you can upgrade your ship and buy new ones while completing various missions. To hyperspace to another galaxy you do not need to purchase any equipment, all you need to do is to fly to a special space station (one in each galaxy called JumpStat) and press 'H'. A hyperspace gate will open and you fly into it. Docking is equally simple, all you have to do is gain permission by pressing 'D' and if granted you fly into/over the space station.
The missions roll on one after the other so you don't have to be a specific status to trigger most of them. The radar is located to one side of the main screen as well as in the centre of the main screen, a sort of head-up-display. To pick up cargo, you need no extra equipment, just fly over the yellow cylinders to pick them up and sell them at any station. Some space stations have games to play, either a casino or a phase-to-stun game, these can gain you money but equally use up your money.
Note that Elite, SunBurst and Air Supremacy are not Iyonix compatible.
