In Stellar Escort you are flying an escort fighter trying to clear the approaching aliens from your sector of deep space. You must avoid colliding with any of the six enemy ships types while dispatching them quickly. Additionally you must also manage your fuel and fire power to complete the level. Game play leverages both 2D and 3D elements with targets first appearing as small dots in the distance growing bigger when they move into range. The game supports sound effects along with keyboard or joystick control.
