Dark Star

Your ambitious aim is to liberate the galaxy from the Evil Lord. But you'll have to do it one planet at a time and with a possible 256 planets you've got a tough task. You are in command of a lone ship, the LIAR. You begin in one of the 16 x 16 galaxy's squares. Depending on the skill level your task is to wipe out the enemies military centres, of which there can be as many as 51. You start in space with stars flashing by you and can encounter a planet, enemy ship, energy concentrations or hyperspace tunnel. Flying into a planet takes you down to the surface where you have to fly past the defence towers and through holes in the force shield to the base and destroy it. Once all the bases on a planet are destroyed you have liberated it and can escape. You can also find spaceports and energy dumps on the surface although these are also well defended. Your energy suffers from enemy hits or collisions with towers and force fields. Towers collapse when blasted with your laser while ships disappear into space dust.
