DOS - 1997
Description of TerraFire
TerraFire is a fun arcade shooter featuring excellent ray-traced graphics and smooth 360-degree parallax scrolling.
As the game’s description says, you will pilot a ship “...through heavily defended underground caverns, past wind tunnels, fire-walls and subterranean lakes. Recover stolen nuclear pods using your ship's tractor beam and carry them back to the planet surface and beyond into hyperspace.” The game is quite a lot of fun, although the controls are hard to get a hang of. The demo version lets you play 8 out of 27 missions in the registered version. The 360-degree scrolling is very smooth, although the action is not as frenetic (or fun) as Zone 66, Epic’s underrated shooter. TerraFire is a lot of fun, but may not be worth the somewhat steep $19.95 price tag for the registered version. Play the demo first to see if you’ll like it enough to pay the full price. The game is a well-deserved winner in the "action/adventure" category of ZDNet's 7th Annual Shareware Awards. Thumbs up!

Well, this is a nice game. Ignore the HOTUD reviewer's opinion, he's clearly never heard of or played THRUST, which is what this game is a more modern take on.
Nice graphics, sound, and scrolling, simple controls (with option to redefine). Recommended, 4 hearts.
Run the Setup program first, and choose the auto-select options to configure sound.
