Phylox is a single player sci-fi shareware shooter.

Those silly scientists have been at it again, tampering with nature. This time they have genetically modified insects and the mutations have established themselves in an underground network of tunnels. In this underground fortress dwells their leader, Phylox with its breeding chambers.
The player takes on the role of Retrox, a lone hero who flies down these tunnels armed with a laser and a grenade launcher to do battle with the insect hordes.

The game is keyboard or joystick controlled.

Phylox DOS The game configuration screen allows the player to use speakers or the PC speaker, keyboard or joystick. Action keys are not configurable
Phylox DOS Zooming along the tunnels blasting bugs
Phylox DOS Too much damage and the player loses a life. That's when this graphic is displayed. It shows a gash in Retrox' arm allowing namless pathogens to enter or perhaps it's just blood escaping
