Trying to find a game PLEASE help meeeee /beg

Post by Tamzin » Thu Jan 17, 2008 10:43 am

Hi, I'm trying to find an old game, I had it on my old PC, 486, it had really cool music. The game was a kind of vector grafix game, a space shoot'em up, where you fly this ship through a hark world of vector graphics, it was really cool, you shoot and stuff and I think you had to destroy the energy generator in each level or something, not sure. I need the name so I can find it for download but I just can't remember the name :-( Anyone have any ideas?

It was sort of like a flight sim kind of style, but you could see your own ship, but you flew through a complete 3D world which was kind of inside some kind of huge ship or something, or some kind of big cave world, not sure.

The graphics were very similar to that old arcade game of Star Wars, that kind of thing. Or like Elite, so it was all 'lines' colored lines, in 3D, but it was so cool, and such cool music I need to find it or die!

The view wasn't from inside your own ship the view was from behind so you could actually see your own ship.

Pretending to be a girl? Nice way to greet a new member :-| prepare yourself for a shock mr uber geek, girls can play computer games too shock horror! not only that I u can bet I can play better than u can!

But no that's not the game, it wasn't 'filled in' like that. It was all dark with colored lines things weren't really filled in if I remember right.

btw why do girls get quicker answers, didn't know that, cool :-P
