Man, I remember having this game and trying to play it but finding it extremely difficult. I was 9 or 10 years old at the time, though. Tongue The setting/theme was awesome but I would always get killed really quickly. Ah well, I never liked this type of game anyway. hahaha

It was later released in the mid-1990s by the original author under JauntTrooper Mission: Thunderbolt. Can anyone find that copy?

To preserve bandwith costs until admins found another cheaper host.

I immediately checked this out because I thought it was a game I used to have in the Mac Plus/Mac SE/30 days, but it wasn't what I thought it would be. Can anyone take a shot at what game I might be thinking of?

I can't say what part of the name is similar--Mission: Thunderbolt just seem like the right name. I've looked at abandonware titles with "thunderbolt" in it, but I didn't find anything. I remember the box cover was superhero cartoon-ish, sort of like Tek Jansen.
