Cosmic Crusader is a well done 3D space fighting game that originally appeared on the Dragon 32/64. It features multi-voice music from the Star Wars film, fancy animations to have your ship materialize (and blow up), twinkling star background, and multiple waves of ships (including tie fighters, which spin in from the distance) that you must shoot and dodge. There are also meteor swarms, where you must dodge the meteors (you can not shoot them). You also get bonus points for completing each round, and there is also a number of shots indicator (if you use them all up, you lose your current ship). The game features good 3D graphics, good sound effects, and is a really good game that I wish that we had seen in North America much sooner.
