Star Wraith 3 is a shareware space combat game. You can play through a branching campaign where your choices effect the war around you, or jump right into instant action and enjoy a quick dogfight.

You can outfit your ship with a selection of missiles and choose your default attack cannon before launch; also change your ship design, if you want. Stability or speed? Your choice. Configure your squad, too, and then shoot out into space for some action.

The game includes a wide selection of enemy ships, both human and alien designs, with various weapons. Fight in a planet's atmosphere, in a meteor field, or out in space. Wage multiplayer battles around space stations. Hide behind planets and use their atmosphere as cover. Perfect your dogfighting.

The fate of your squad is in your hands. Keep them alive and hone your skills, and you just might be able to win the war.
