Publisher's description

STRAP IN, BOOT UP, AND HANG ON FOR A RIDE THAT WILL TEST THE LIMITS OF YOUR SANITY!

You begin deep below the surface of Lunar Base 1 where an unknown alien race has taken over the minds of the automated robots burned by the Post-Terran Mining Corporation. You'll lunge straight down mine shafts, twist around never-ending tunnels and fight your way past robotic menaces the likes which no one has seen. And you'll do it in an environment thats tryly 360° 3-D... move up, move down, shoot everything everywhere. Adjust as top becomes bottom and hang on to your senses (and your lunch) as you drop straight down mine shafts on a ride that'll leave you spinning.

What's the good of losing your mind if you can't share the experience with your friends? Descent invites you and your buddies to dive into the action together with head-to-head and cooperative two player modem and eight-player network support.

  • State-of-the-art 3-D graphics including animating texture maps, light source shading and 3-D animating monsters.
  • The only game of its kind with a full 360° 3-D environment.
  • Highly advanced artificial intelligence with enemies that actually learn, adjusting their actions based upon your tactics. They'll plot, wait and ambush you from all sides.
  • 30 twisting levels of mechanical monsters, deadly traps and hidden tunnels.
  • Explosive 3-D, multi-direction sound effects and blazing musical scores.
  • Play head-to-head with a modem, or for the ultimate multiplayer action, eight-player network games with Appletalk or MacIPXTM. Challenge friends with Power Macs or PCs!
  • Winner of the Golden Triad Award.
