Description of Star Empire

One of the rarest games ever made - for PC and other 8-bit systems - is First Row's first release, and one of the first "space opera" adventure games that StarFlight would take to new heights.

In Star Empire, you basically pilot a starship from an overhead perspective, shooting baddies and taking various missions on cue from the game. Game mechanics is very simple, and vector graphics makes it look like a souped-up version of Space War. Still, as a pioneer of space adventure games, Star Empire deserves its place in the annals of computer gaming - although its influence is debatable because the game is so obscure, even in 1988.

Recommended as a nostalgic trip for die-hard fans of space games.

You have the game duplicated here:

Note that the DOS release is from 1988 and the name is Empire! with the exclamation mark, so this is the right entry and the one I linked is wrong both in year and name.

Other platforms have other release years.
