Game Information

After the first Colony Wars game, the Earth Empire was defeated... and the remnants of this regime sealed inside of the Sol System, cut off from the rest of the galaxy by some unknown technology. Within Sol, the Earth Empire civilization has fallen apart. Various tribes and factions, warring with one another have left the once great home system of humanity a wreck of salvage and waste from used up resources. One leader however, a Commander Kron, seeks to unite the warring clans under a banner of vengeance... and together find some way to break out from this solar prison. The game is space combat, done from a cockpit view. Different combinations of weapons can be equipped on your space fighter prior to launch. Missions take place in space as well as inside planet atmospheres. Various buttons cycle weapons, activate tractor beams, communicate responses and navigate your ship. In typical space combat fashion, you are equipped with 360 degrees of movement as well as thrust and braking options. The game does not feature realistic inertia and objects will gradually "slow" in space.

Additional Information

When a nation has been oppressed by a government or tyrannical leadership, its people can either revolt or take their undue punishment lying down. In this case, the League of Free Worlds felt the Earth-based naval Empire had taken things too far; they initiated a revolution, a rebellion against their leaders. And they were successful -- they depleted the Empire's taskforce so much that the League of Free Worlds became a dominating force of the solar system.

This was the basis of Colony Wars. After the war was completed, the Empire were confined to their own solar system; imprisoned within Sol. Decades passed and the once glorious force managed to survive long enough to reproduce and keep their existence alive.

A man named Kron was appointed the new leader of the reformed Empire. His initiative is simple: escape Sol with the remaining forces in tact and rebel against the League of Free Worlds; to destroy them in a bitter act of vengeance. Players assume the role of Mertens, a loyal naval fighter pilot trained in guerrilla combat, unit leadership, and air warfare.

The League of Free Worlds may have won the battle, but the Empire is out to win the war -- this is the premise behind Psygnosis' sequel Colony Wars: Vengeance. Set throughout nineteen different acts, players will engage in over forty unique missions, each advancing the naval forces' powers. Depending on how the game is played, players will be treated to one of six different endings.

After receiving mission briefings, it will be up to the player to carry out that mission; failure hampers the Empire's progress. Typical missions involve destroying the League of Free Worlds' space structures, fighter pilots, and escorts. Many times, you'll find yourself fighting through dogfights of epic proportions; it's like a war out there! Additionally, there will be reconnaissance and intelligence missions that will require players to capture and escort certain people/forces from point A to point B.

Like the original Colony Wars, Vengeance concentrates on spacecraft warfare. In addition to different viewpoints, players will be required to keep their eyes on shield and weapons levels. If the shields are running low, its best to get out of dodge and live to fight another day. Mertens' crafts (five in all) are supplied with destructive weaponry including plasma missiles, particle guns, a seismic lance, grapple guns, lasers, and an ion cannon.

Needless to say, you're not in the Milky Way anymore; there are five vast solar systems to explore, each filled with planets, nebulae, comets, etc. Though a chance of sightseeing will be slim to none, the different solar systems have unique visuals/sights. Your journey will place you on various planets from time to time, fighting it out in the not-so-friendly skies.

Colony Wars: Vengeance supports both Memory Cards and passwords to save game progress. Additionally, it utilizes the Dual Shock Analog Controller for analog controls and the vibration functions.
