Emulation
This game works with: Basilisk II, Mini vMac

It's "Space Rogue", as in piracy rather than interstellar face makeup. A limited space-trading/bounty hunting/piracy game set in a 3d universe with a little bit of RPG tacked on. A bit like the even older games "SunDog" or "Elite," if that means anything to you.

PDF includes excellent hires scans of box and complete contents for Amiga version. I have the Apple II version, and everything is identical except the "how to run" sheet. Taken from scribd.com. So glad I don't have to scan everything now. Now if we can just get a replacement archive of the actual software.

Nice, thanks for that mini-review! It sounds interesting for its time. I'd like to give it a proper try sometime later this year.

I played it beginning-to-end in the early ’90s. It was a hoot, as I recall. Splendid combination of gameplay conventions: flight/combat simulation, space exploration, and top-down RPG elements. The Mac port could have used a little more finesse, but it’s good enough.

Can anyone attest to this game's fun factor? How does it hold up?

You are a champion, Master Control.
Anyone with original media feel free to add a new archive and scans of your disk.

Hang on, I'll get the file and put together a new archive with whatever I can find on the web...

UPDATE: Done. The disk image isn't from original media; it's what was uploaded to the site originally. PDF docs came from replacementdocs.com.
