wow these comments are interesting.
first not quake or any id engine.
second has many advantages over these closer in spec to its windows competition q2.
ive played at least 3 versions of this game the later us release had a windows 32 mode offering very good graphics.
to be honest the gameplay is the downfall not bad just not as fun as more successful games.
very weird storyline kinda original but too weird.

Good game, while it may not be one of the titans of 90s FPS games, it deserves at least to have a place on the "best of the rest" listing. Despite some people's claims, it is neither a Quake nor a Wolfenstein 3D engine, but its own thing which has some pretty cool features despite the engine limitations. The graphics and theme of the game do remind a bit of Quake at times though.

A CD-image version, including the level editor and CD audio, can be found through the 3D Shooter Legends site.

Also, to you folks who have made any good addon levels, upload them somewhere? I'm sure I am not the only person who'd like to play.

hahaha, so funny that this game is under the EDITOR/CONSTRUCTION SET
theme but the level editor is not present, that's priceless,hey don't get me wrong
here,the people who put this site together have done a fantastic job but it is what it is and the level editor just aint here.....sigh-

where is the mapmaker/level editor utility?
my cdrom version from back in the day came with
a program to make my own levels and fill them with
enemies,and it was amazing what you could do with lighting
as far as enemies being able to see you or not, the mapmaker
program made up 50% of what made this game so much fun.
this version is the nuetered version!!!!!!

Has one of the most interesting renderers. The game abounds with originality. It is by no means a Quake engine. Where is the source code?

Pretty good quake-style game.

This game's pretty good, had fun while playing it... nonetheless, it just screams for a sequel that we'll never get. What a shame. =.=

This ukrainian game wasn't released before Quake due to publisher's delay. Ukraine never does trash. Network game included.

Network game: (change/add value in Dos Box Config File)

A nice Quake rip-off from Russia! The engine looks really dull in comparation with Quake (f.e. the heighth of the map structure is limited as it was in the Wolfenstein engine), but it has other nice features like the ability to shoot off limbs and heads from your enemies... Ok, sometimes it looked very stupid if one enemy attacks you with his shoulders instead of his (shot off) arms! XD

But a great variety of locations (missile bases, alien structures, ancient egypt etc.) and a solid an easy gameplay makes it a nice FPS game really worth a look... :)

Hi, I downloaded your game and when I run it in DOSBox it says "runtime error 200 error loading from "csm.bin" HELP!

IateTheCheshireCat 2012-05-05 0 point DOS version

As a fan of Doom, Quake etc I really enjoyed it. It's good!

I remember being amazed at the demo when you could blast enemies arms off. I also remember how the second level completely abandons the mechanic in the full game.
