Star Control 2 For Mac

features

Star Control II came out in 1992, and is considered by many to be an absolute classic - yet for some reason, the genre it came from appears to be completely dead. Games like Mass Effect have some of the same elements (and setting - space), but focus far more on combat and cinematic narrative, as opposed to raw (often blind) exploration, resource collecting, and problem-solving.

sky

  • default catalogue of over 600,000 stars
  • extra catalogues with more than 177 million stars
  • default catalogue of over 80,000 deep-sky objects
  • extra catalogue with more than 1 million deep-sky objects
  • asterisms and illustrations of the constellations
  • constellations for 20+ different cultures
  • images of nebulae (full Messier catalogue)
  • realistic Milky Way
  • very realistic atmosphere, sunrise and sunset
  • the planets and their satellites
  • Star Control (aka starcon), a really nice strategy game sold in 1990 for DOS, is available and ready to be played again! Also available on Genesis, Commodore 64, Amiga and Amstrad CPC, time to play a sci-fi / futuristic, shooter and space flight video game title.
  • Never played the original Star Control 2 but observed some of it-enough to know that Ur-Quan Masters HD is the best to play. But sadly, and the reason I give it a design value of 1 instead of 5 and a 1-star rating instead of 5-star, is because of a SAVE GAME glitch.
