Forsaken © 1998 Acclaim Ent., Inc.
The Terran System, once proud birth place of humanity, now lies forsaken, utterly abandoned and up for grabs. In the year 2113 humanity destroyed itself when it sought to harness the power of matter itself.
Tragically, their first experiment created an uncontrollable fusion reaction, which ripped apart the planet, sending an irresistible shock wave through the entire Terran System. When it was over, the Earth was devastated.
Months later, the solar system was declared "Condemned
". Now, every bounty hunter, mercenary, space pirate, and free-booting scum of the galaxy has the unwritten right to raid the system and take anything that the Theocracy didn't want. The worst cut-throats known have converged on this blackened corner of the universe to engage in a desperate game of interstellar cat-and-mouse. Astride roaring anti-gravity pioncycles with deadly arsenals, they will battle to the death against each other and the dead world's ruthless robotic sentinels. For the one who emerges victorious, the lost glories of a dead civilization await. For the rest, only agonizing death.
Forsaken means fast and furious gameplay through action-packed levels, journeying into the merciless void of space, exploring the underwater perils of a dead ocean, penetrating deep into subterranean, maze-like complexes whilst battling your way through a horde of space nasties.
There is a wide variety to the gameplay from one level to the next. One minute you're solving complex puzzles, the next you're engaging in a furious dogfight against impossible odds. Danger lurks in every corner of this futuristic corner of the galaxy; but if you can handle yourself, and you're very lucky, you might get out un-atomised.
