Article #2 (5 is last): From: xx004@cleveland.Freenet.Edu (Atari SIG) Newsgroups: freenet.sci.comp.atari.product.jaguar.summary Subject: JAGUAR: Crescent Galaxy Reply-To: xx004@cleveland.Freenet.Edu (Atari SIG) Date: Fri Feb 25 02:00:24 1994 TAKEN FROM: Jaguar Special Edition, ATARI EXPLORER ONLINE, 21 August 1993 Crescent Galaxy? - Lifelike three dimensionally rendered and shadowed planetary objects and lifeforms prevail in this multi-leveled side shooter. You are the young Corporal Trevor McFur of the Circle Reserve Core. Returning from a deep space reconnaissance mission, you and your shipmate intercept a long-range transmission telling you that you are the only hope in saving the galaxy against a ruthless creature. The game is visually stunning with full textured 3D renderings of creatures and planets with nine levels reflecting five different worlds. Enemies and allies include: Pop-up Poppies which explode when they sense an enemy nearby; Geysers which can spurt forth abrupt blasts of nuclear steam erupting from the Planets core; and bothersome creatures such as Skeletal Vultures, Scorpions and Flying Dinos and dozens more.
