Phoenix 3 is a sci-fi adventure with two completely different game play styles. Half the game is a slow paced side-scrolling shooter, the other half is 3D space combat, similar to Wing Commander.

Phoenix 3 features live-action video cutscenes that unfold the story. Most of the game takes place on the planet Galearth. Galearth has been at peace for centuries, but is now threatened by alien invaders known as the Gral. It is up to you, Derek Freeman, to uncover an ancient weapon known as the Talon that can defeat the Gral.
