Ok, like many, I cannot remember the name of this game but I can give good description. The game was one of the first windows 95 games and I believe worked with DOS as well. Your ship looked like a gray Kilrathi Dralthi that always stayed in the middle of the screen unless you went to any of the edges of the game level. Below you were well drawn trees and landscapes. You could get power-ups and your ship was surrounded by a circle of squares that lit up in the direction of your mission objective. This was no 256 color game and you needed a decent computer (Pentium 166 16 meg) at the time to play it. Your ship had a shielding that could be recharged and if Iím not mistaken, your weapons needed to be recharged as well. The imagery was 3-D even though it was really 2-D (Like Starcraft). I think in the last mission of the shareware version, you fought a much larger ship to win. This is not much to go on but I hope this can give you some ideas.

Deep inside my foggy brain there is the word "tubular..." but I knew, it's not exactly the whole title. I remember good graphics.
Perhaps it's a little bit helpful to seek the game.

Tublar Worlds? Na, but that was a good game. If I recall, each level, you were on a mission. Sometimes you actually had to pick spys up and drop them off to finish a mission. I hope Im not confusing this with something else. Gha! :Angry: The word is right at the tip of my keyboard and I just cannot remember it.
