    Explore 360 degrees of freedom in these revolutionary space shooters

    Welcome to the world of Descent - the amazing experience of 360° fluid 3D motion that is still unmatched. Plunge through mines that defy physics, blast your way past enemy robots and experience vertigo like never before. Arm yourself with deadly weapons and confront creatures with highly advanced artificial intelligence; they will plot, wait and ambush you from all sides.

    You are about to embark on a new and exciting journey. One that will fill you with a sense of wonder and discovery. Light and sound will mix like a kaleidoscope to thrill you as never before. Spin 360° through twisting levels of mechanical monsters, deadly traps and hidden tunnels. Explosive 3D multi-directional sound effects and pulsing musical score will keep you on the edge of your seat.

    After finishing 30 levels of thrill-packed Descent you would like to take a break or... plunge through 30 more levels of Descent 2 as you battle highly intelligent robot enemies, including the evil thief bot, leaving their flaming hulks in your exhaust.

    Don't keep this feeling of nausea to yourself, go Head-to-Head with 2-player modem support or 8-player network and Tournament Mode. Brace yourself for the world of Descent ... if you can handle it. Get them before they get you...
