Description

In Stellar 7, a remake of the 1983 game, you drive the Raven, the most advanced Terran fighting vehicle. You are up against Gir Draxon and his evil Arcturan army. You will go from star system to star system, fighting his forces. When the enemies have been destroyed, a mothership flies overhead and beams down the Guardian of the star system, a giant enemy ship. When you reach the Arcturus star system, you will fight Gir Draxon!

The game is played from a first person view looking out from the cockpit of the Raven. It is in true polygonal 3D. Aside from a graphical and aural overhaul and the addition of cutscenes, the remake's gameplay and level design is virtually identical to the original, right down to the placement of each and every enemy. The major differences are the added "power modules" (e.g. supercannon, superjump) and a major boss creature at the end of every level.

Trivia

Stellar 7 was later released on CD. This version was the same as the disk version, however it featured digitized voices on all of the cut scenes instead of the opening scene only. The background music during the game could be played from any of the supported sound cards (which was the same as the disk version) or from CD audio. The video modes supported were the same in both versions, however the disk version supported MCGA in 256 colors and the CD version supported MCGA in 4 colors. (The 4 color MCGA looked the same as the CGA version except a custom palette was used.)
