  • Summary: Welcome to Descent™ - 30 levels of the most mind-bending, stomach-churning action game ever. Featuring true 3-Dimensional worlds with light source shading, texture mapping, 3-D morphing, directional sound effects and sizzling music, this is technology taken to the limit.
    You begin
    deep below the surface of Lunar Base I where on unknown alien race has taken over the chasm of the Post-Terran Mining Corporation. Lunge straight down mine shafts, twist around never-ending tunnels and fight your way past robotic menaces in an environment that's truly 360° 3-D... move up, move down shoot everything everywhere. Hang onto your senses (and your lunch) as you drop straight down mine shafts on a ride that'll leave you spinning.
    And what's the good of losing your mind if you can't share the experience with your friends? Descent invites you and your buddies to dive into the action together with head-to-head combat and cooperative two-player modem and eight-player network support.

    By far the best game in the Descent series and one of the best games of all time. Descent is a rare treat that broke new grounds in DOS gaming in 1994. This game to this day remains compelling with 6 degrees of freedom, a corporate mercenary, space-themed backdrop, and some of the catchiest music that could turn any gamer into a badass alien killer. Superb level design and the end of level self-destruct sequences with timed planet escapes delivers the pulse-pounding thrill of arcade gaming that you don't find in the modern-day FPS. Descent has not lost its unique place in the history of games and deserves a place in your game library. Expand
