Description

Shockwave Assault combines Shock Wave and its expansion Operation Jumpgate and makes them available for systems other than the 3DO for the first time.

In Shock Wave, the player takes the role of a rookie pilot, defending the Earth from an alien invasion. From the cockpit of the F-177 fighter, one shoots at the alien walkers and fighters with lasers and missiles, rearming and refueling at supply depots when necessary. The story is told with live-action cutscenes.

Operation Jumpgate continues the story with several further missions, set around the solar system.

Screenshots

Shockwave Assault Windows Mission Accomplished. Well sort of 'coz there's still that thing up ahead.
Shockwave Assault Windows The main menu is the same as in the main game with the same screens being used to set up the player e.t.c. The player id did not carry over from the main game to the expansion
Shockwave Assault Windows After being shot down there's a nice video sequence that has the player being stitched back together before resuming the mission
Shockwave Assault Windows ... the video then cuts to the command centre somewhere in space. The sequence is quite long and well done.
