Descent II  1995

Taking place immediately after the events of Descent, you pilot a space ship that moves 360 degrees in all three dimensions inside of space mines. You work for a mining corporation whose bases have been attacked by an invasion force that is heading towards Earth. The manufacturing facilities have been adapted from building mining robots to develop a robot army. Your mission is to move from mine to mine, destroy the core and escape before the entire mine is obliterated. New to Descent II is a guide bot that seeks out objectives and leads you to them, if you choose to free it. There are 30 levels in this game, with only 3 playable in the shareware demo.
