The first of three games in the Rogue Squadron series, Rogue Squadron 3D is an arcade shooter game set in the Star Wars universe. Set 6 months after Star Wars: A New Hope, you play as Luke Skywalker, leading a starfighter squadron on various missions throughout the galaxy. Each level has 5 mission goals which must be achieved to earn a bronze, silver, or gold medal. Earning medals allows you to advance the next level, as well as unlock extra vehicles and levels. The gameplay and graphics were quite good for the time, and the levels have a good variety of objectives. Sometimes the goal is to attack the Empire, other times it's to defend a convoy or rescue Rebels. The demo version has only one level, in which Rogue Squadron must defend Mos Eisley from an Imperial attack. It may be necessary to run Rogue Squadron in Windows 95 compatibility mode on Windows XP and newer. There are 16 levels in this game, with only the first level playable in the shareware version.
