Game description

Contrary to what the version number might suggest, this is a very, very early developmental version of Battlecruiser: 3000 A.D. It looks drastically different from the final version, but has the same basic concepts: you assume the role of a GALCOM battlecruiser captain, tasked with keeping peace in the Galaxy with the threat of the hostile Gammulans looming.

The demo contains a two-part mission where you need to defend a colony on Mars from Gammulan attack. Not all game options and modes are available, but you will control the Battlecruiser and pilot an Interceptor, including atmospheric flight. There is also a Free Flight mode where all player's craft are invincible and you can freely explore the game world.

Additionally, the demo includes optional intro and in-game animations. It is relatively simple-looking, but playable nonetheless, and shows what the game could've looked like if it came out back in 1993.
