Description of Virus

This game is the perfect answer to the question: what happens when you lock the designer of Eliteseries and future designer of Transport Tycoon in the same room?

Virus is a furious and addictive action game that, like its designers, exudes creative gameplay unlike any other game you have seen. The premise is simple: pilot a polygonal spacecraft to destroy everything in sight. Levels get difficult quickly, but the robust graphics engine borrowed from Elite Plus makes up for everything.

I recommend playing this game with a mouse, since its control method is excellent. Be warned, though: the game i is very difficult. Don't expect to finish the game unless you are very confident of your reflexes ;)

Also, check out the superior 1998 sequel V2000, also on this site.

Played it on the Amiga when it came out. Very difficult.... Mouse seems best but it is still very hard to play.

was an advanced game (technically) for it's time when it first came out.
