Space shooting multiplayer game [Star Control]

Post by bogiha »

Hi,

I'm looking for an old space shooting multiplayer game. I'm not sure if the game was DOS or Windows based, probably DOS.

It was a multiplayergame, where you had 5 or 7 ships each pr. game and the one to destroy the other parts ships first would win the round. The ships had different levels/strengths and one could choose the row in which these ships were set to appear in.

Does anyone have a clue, what the name of this game is?

That sounds suspiciously like Battleship. MobyGames has a list of its video game implementations:

Thanks for the answer, but it was not a turn based game.

It was in space shooting game, where you just kept fighting until all the spaceships of the "enemy (player2)" or your own were destroyed.

The spaceships were just floating in space and if you went of screen on the left side, the ship reappeared on the right side of the screen.

Any idea?

Sounds like it could be:

Star Control
Star Control II
Star Control 3
Escape Velocity (Win16 version, UNRELATED TO THE MAC GAME OF THE SAME NAME)
Melee

Thanks Leilei :-)

I'm 99.99% sure it is Star Control, i'm looking for. Just got to check with my brother, if he also remembers.
