Video Game: Kiloblaster
Kiloblaster is a Space Shooter Video Game Trilogy written by Allen Pilgrim and published by Epic Mega Games in the early 1990s. It is based on the classic Galaxian game, with a few differences such as allowing greater player movement (up and down as well as left and right), much faster enemy movement, power-ups, enemies that take more than one hit, and allies to assist in battle. It runs under MS-DOS, and took advantage of the still relatively new 256-colour VGA standard, although like Jill of the Jungle before it, a 16-colour EGA mode was also selectable in version 1.0. Running in 256-colour mode would place many obviously computer-generated backgrounds behind the main game levels, something common in games of this era keen to show off their graphical capabilities. The game also has Adlib music (in CMF format) and Sound Blaster sound effects. Allen Pilgrim declared the registered version freeware on August 4, 2008.In the first episode "Death of a Starship" the starship called Kiloprise was attacked by aliens and sent to the outer regions of space. The captain of the ship takes a powerful jet fighter to transport the remaining crew and fight his way through the galaxy to warn Earth of the coming rebel invasion.In the second episode "No Way Out", the Kiloblaster is surrounded by the alien force but after finding their weak point, takes off for another battle.In the final episode "The Final Battle", the alien force is crippled and is making a counter attack for earth. The Captain makes all the speed possible fighting on the way for the final battle and alert earth. In the end all the captain gets for a reward is a two week holiday in Jamaica.Needs Wiki Magic Love.
