Description

A first person shooter that came out during the "second wave" of me-toos that struck the genre, specifically after Duke3D and Quake.

In this one you fight in a futuristic environment were things have (once again) gone awfully wrong and you have to set the record straight again. Additional features include: large outdoor environments with rolling terrain and the chance to operate several types of vehicles, including turrets, tanks, etc.

The graphics engine is actually 2.5D engine using animated sprites.
