Preface: The Review is part of a series of great research 3D Realms Anthology incorporating 32 retro games from the illustrious creator Duke Nukem and Shadow Warrior. In This series of reviews I will not evaluate something and write pros or cons, will only be a general description mixed with my opinion. Thumbs up or down will only show, I liked the game or not and no more. Game Description: Horizontal scrolling shooter 1996 year, in which we manage the assault ship of the elite fleet of the planet Yutima. We have to strike the planet Zile, which decided to destroy our home world, but we are not bald and we will strike first. The Operation will be called-Stargunner. Go for the motherland! In General, the game is very dynamic and hardcore and accompanied, as pleasant music, and comfortable gameplay and clear storyline. Don't want to start all the time in the first world? We can immediately choose any of the four locations and start shooting enemy territory. In The game an interesting line of weapons and improve the ship, you can buy bombs and life between levels, during the passage meets a lot of different bonuses. The Game can be called the benchmark of the genre... It's Strange that I've never met her before, and I haven't heard from her. This product is much higher than most modern scrolling shooters and it can even compete with flagship novelties. Prepare your nerves of steel and prepare to fly.

Stargunner is an old but still very nice side-scroller from the legendary studio Apogee, it is the same 3D Realms, creators of Duke Nykema and other classic games. In Addition, one of the first side-scrollers with the interrupted 3D graphics. Plot. We Save Our homeland from the evil alien interferents, by inflicting a preemptive strike on them. The Plot is, but for a tick. Gameplay. The Game is ancient and runs through DosBox which can lead to bugs associated with its work. The Rest is a classic side-scroller in which we purchase equipment for his spaceship, and then fly to missions in which to demolish enemies and bosses at the end. All in the Game 3 zones, plus one initial "intelligence" which combines the stylistics of the other three, and which is a free version (the game was originally in the shareware version, now it is completely free). The Game is quite passable all, an hour for 3. The Gameplay is still quite drive-by. Despite The choice of difficulty, the game is generally more difficult than modern analogues (as well as most games of the 90s). Graphics and sounds. The Picture is old, but still a nice eye (although in due time it was above all praise). In addition, there is a 3D video insert, which at the time was a novelty, and that is not always there even in modern representatives of the genre. The Soundtrack is even good. As a result. A Beautiful example of a classic side-scroller from the legendary studio. I Recommend both fans of retro, and fans of the side-scrollers, because the game is still very good. 8 starships of 10 http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1126011506 P.
