Description

Shockwave Assault combines Shock Wave and its expansion Operation Jumpgate and makes them available for systems other than the 3DO for the first time.

In Shock Wave, the player takes the role of a rookie pilot, defending the Earth from an alien invasion. From the cockpit of the F-177 fighter, one shoots at the alien walkers and fighters with lasers and missiles, rearming and refueling at supply depots when necessary. The story is told with live-action cutscenes.

Operation Jumpgate continues the story with several further missions, set around the solar system.

Shockwave Assault Windows If this is Egypt then there must be pyramids, or is that the other way around? Two enemy walker things ahead. In the bottom left the red bar is the shields,  green is weapons and blue is fuel
Shockwave Assault Windows The ship has launched and is going into combat over Egypt. The approach is over the sea where there's a chance to watch the wind-surfers. Don't they know we're being invaded!
Shockwave Assault Windows In addition to the walkers there are flying things. The central part of the cockpit display is a radar. Different colours for different bad guys. It also shows the safe fly zone
