Game description

On the distant planet Tawy, two noble Houses are engaged in a conflict that will decide the future of their peoples. As a fighter pilot of the Horus Empire, your mission is to complete various mission that will eventually change the course of the war.

Sandwarriors is a futuristic combat flight simulator with a setting heavily inspired by Ancient Egyptian mythology. At the player's disposal is an arsenal of powerful weapons, and the craft can perform complex pre-programmed manoeuvres. The enemy can deploy various ground and air units, including mech walkers, missile launchers, defence turrets, and of course fighters of their own.
