Ahh.. Rebel Assault. This classic star wars game was one of my favorites. It had you playing ‘rookie 1’ – a young rebel fighter who is remarkably like, yet not quite like, Luke Skywalker. This game presents you with many varied missions in different types of ships – but each mission follows the ‘loosely guided path’ game style. In this type of game your ship is steered down a predetermined path – and you can only deviate a little from the path in order to try and shoot the bad guys, or to avoid flying into bad guys. It is actually surprisingly playable and addictive.
And it runs perfectly under Virtual PC 🙂
