This game is awesome even though it gets totally rediculous. Everything about this game is great, sound, gfx, controls, gameplay. If you get a chance try the 2 player mode, I played that with my younger brother for a couple of hours a few weeks ago.

I haven't checkeed the zip from this site but the one I have has a ship designer, it's nice touches like that that make me replay a game.

Check this beauty out. :Brain:

My lil' brother loves this game and therefore I suppose it's cool. I've played it years ago but Im not very big fan of this genre.

There are two versions of this game, a Windows version and a DOS version. The game on the site is the DOS version. It requires DOSBox to run flawless, but it CAN be played in Windows (with no sound). That is why it has all three compatibility flags :evil:

I believe the one word that best fits this game is: WIERD :P

As for tactics, I'd say get a Maelstrom (regenerative armor > thick armor). Arm it with Zica laser, perhaps the Sonic rear gun, and either Atom bombs or Zica flamethrowers for sidekicks. Get the best shielding and generator and it is unstopable. :Titan:

I'm having some trouble with this - when I destroy the Dreadnaught on the last level of episode 4 (Dread-Not - awful pun), rather than loading a lovely message congratulating me, the game freezes on a black screen, and on forcing DOSBox to close i get an error message which reads something like "error: memory could not read" (i'd have to do it again to get the exact message) any suggestions?

it's in DOSBox on Win XP 3GHz PC with 1GB of RAM and I'm running around 10000 CPU cycles in the emulator.

Hey guys ... was ramblin around the site and came across this game - it's one I've been trying to remember for years - not just for the main game tho (even tho it was, and still is fantastic), but it's got a hidden game in it! The hidden game is similar to the old scorched earth but more real-time based and suped-up gfx + sound. Now I'm off to trawl the web (and my old PC mags) to find the cheat code!

Will post it here as soon as I find out

Heh, got it. Just type 'destruct' at the title screen (without the quotes).
Press F1 for controls.

See y'all.

Devianti.
