Stargoose Warrior DOS After collecting the 6 gems you can enter this warppoint to the next level (Notice that when the angle of the terrain changes, the game adjusts your ship's sprite as well, thus creating a pseudo 3D effect)
Stargoose Warrior DOS I've launched a missile at a missile-turret, it shoots one back at me (unlike your pea-shooter, missiles are not blocked by elevations in the terrain but glide along)
