Description from the packaging.

Sent to conquer: Machine versus man.
Air to air to ground combat flight simulation.

Starglider by Argonaut Software.

Futuristic tactical arcade challenge.

Starglider is a true arcade quality 3D combat flight simulator of the first order. A high action product with novella and poster included, giving hints and tips which could be vital to your strategy.

"You now have manual control," the computer advised.

Jaysan pulled gingerly back on his control shoe. The fighter's nose lifted and he felt a slight increase in weight. He turned to the left. His body shifted in his seat and he suddenly realized the meaning of the old expression to fly 'by the seat of your pants.'

Once again the fighter was an aircraft. It was responding like an aircraft.

The battle it had never been designed to fight was waiting for it far below on the darkened surface of the devastated planet.

You are in command of Novenia's last Airborne Ground Attack Vehicle, with limited weaponry and fuel, with no apparent means of replenishment.

Using high energy single-pulse beam lasers and TV guided missiles you must overcome the sophisticated strategies of the invading Ergon air and ground forces, led by Fleet Commander Hermann Krudd in the spacefleet starship... the Starglider.

The challenge begins now!
