Action and shooting from onboard the enterprise
This Star trek game released in 83 managed to really keep me hooked for a long period. It's a shooter in space kind of game, where you control enterprise, the early day model of the ship, and you go about exploring the 2D space that you get in a portion of the screen. The left portion of the play area is occupied by text and numbers based indicators of your total energy production, shields levels, the amount of damage to the hull and number of photon torpedoes or other weapons of that same kind. The interesting thing about this game is that it is well produced, very interesting to look at, always exciting to play and always fun. The graphics are simple; lines and dots, and black, blue and grey (and white) are the colors on offer. But, it has that arcade feel that just gets you through, to the next wave of enemies, and the play of ordering power be redistributed just makes you feel like you're Picard or Kirk! Which for oldschool gamer Trekkies can be it! Else, download Visual Star Trek, more of a simulation than a game, but pretty well delivered in any case.
