This is a special demo version of Dark Colony which was published on a number of gaming magazine cover CDs. It features one Human mission called the Secret of Terra Tyrren which is not included with the full game.

In the demo mission, the player is tasked with locating a source of alien radiation and subsequently protecting the site and a surveillance station established there from attacking Grays. Unlike the downloadable demo version, the player is given control of the Commander character, and the available technology is limited to Troopers, Reapers and Sentinels.

The demo includes the full intro cinematic, as well as several short end-game cinematic sequences displayed upon either victory or defeat.
