Wow to launch this "Space shooter" again after 20 Years-horny. This was the NonplusUltra at the Time in terms of Graphics and Gameplay. Fly over a planet with a Spaceship And complete Tanks, other Aircraft and ground Targets. Even today, you Can still control wonderfully with the Gamepad and is still Fun.

Another game that happened rather unnoticed and deserved a better luck. Velocity Terminal is a well-planned action game with an exceptional sound for your time. Don't look for simulation; You won't find realism. Do Not Look for FPS-type action; Here apart from the reflexes must be counted on that the ship is handled like a ship and will rotate in a different way than you expect. Don't expect to run and get rid of everyone; A lot of ships are faster than you. Apart from the action, it takes a little thought how you want to do the actions (a little, it's a mainly action game). You hit Them? Well, the kinematics. At the time they were surprising; They look like boots today. Apart from that I have never liked that prerrenderizado style of his time. Another topic (could be DOSBox) is that the joystick operation is somewhat vague (you have to make many fixes because it does not focus well). I recommend It because in his time I liked it enough. To This day is not so spectacular, but it is worth to take a Look.

Incredible!!!!! A wonderful game!!!! It is incredible that with the limitations of the time achieved makes a videjuego with the best Artistic section and an amazing gameplay and frantic. The gameplay is very simple but you have to take the hand is basically accelerate to go faster and decelerate to go slower when the situation warrants. The maneuverability is very fluid and very well achieved the versatility of the enemy ships. In those really huge spaces. The Artistic section is very original beautiful design of the enemy ships. With very few Poligos have been able to create intinidad of hallucinate designs. The Truth is a work of art. The same for the design of the levels. With different color shades and very well designed environments. Each level is a world apart with a lot of personality. And with a very good texture design. The same for the final bosses. They Are very well achieved with the same porcedimiento. But It is lacking that most of them are static but still are a great challenge worth facing. The music and the sound are very well achieved personally. Although they are not so amazing for their envejecimieto even so I was nostalgic for every moment since it is a game made in 1995 a time that I remember with much affection. A video game that like descent is advanced to its time in technology. Play it don't descepcionara. If You love ships This is your game.
