Shooting and sci-fi flight game; huge maps!
Terminal Velocity offers you a great combination of shooting and flight gameplay. You will be flying futuristic ships while attempting to get all the powerups, as you would normally do in a regular arcade shooter game, but, then again, you will not be performing your activities in small, confined spaces; no, you will be flying within maps that make up no less than 400 thousand square miles, which, for all intents and purposes is a lot. Another great thing about Terminal Velocity is that all your ships are very well produced; they fly nicely, they control very well, and controlling your altitude is very simple. Sure, with a setup that includes a gamepad it's even smoother and better, but playing the game with a keyboard only is by no means a hassle. The game also has an involving story, as, by the end of it, you will be the one known as the Savior of the Known Galaxy, a title which adds a certain tongue in cheek humor to the game. So, download and play it, along with Tube, another futuristic racer, less sprawling in size but well executed.
