sphere.gif - 3275 bytes Drop into a mind-bending true 3D world populated by rampaging robotic mining droids. As a mercenary pilot hired by an unorthodox mining corporation to deal with a robitic infestation a primary lunar mining colony, you fly and blast your way through many levels of caverns and labarinthine corridors. Your mission - rescue any survivors and shut down the mine reactor any way you can. A safe return is entirely optional!

Descent is a fast action space flight/combat game offering unparalleled freedom of movement in all dimensions. For the first time, explore corridors leading from the roof, high up on walls or from the floor below.

Given its complex polygonal 3D environment (using similar technology to Quake), the highly optimised Descent engine produces smooth gameplay even at high resolutions and colour depths.
