Descent 1.10



Thumbnail 1 for Descent
Descent for Wii.
Descent was originally released by Parallax Software in 1995. It was the first game featuring a full 3D environment (before Quake) as well as gameplay boasting six degrees of freedom. One of the few games in its class to allow the player full freedom in moving up and down, left and right, backwards and forwards. Players control a ship as they move through levels in both single player and multiplayer modes, using a wide variety of both energy cannons and missiles to defeat opponents.

The resource files from a registered copy of Descent (updated to v1.5) are required. The required files are called DESCENT.PIG and DESCENT.HOG and must be placed in the /apps/descent/ directory. The resource files from the shareware version or the "Destination Saturn" release are not suitable. The game will perform checksum verification at startup to make sure they are correct.

Change log (1.10):
Multiplayer/IPX emulation is now implemented and an annoying random freeze bug has been fixed.
