Star Busters 3
(Web version is experimental and runs a bit slow, downloadable versions are nicer!)
Lead the STARBUSTERS sisters Sweet and Sour through three intensely easy missions of tactical combat against the evil ENEMY FORCES. Includes two unique* endings. Presented in glorious 4 colour CGA Palette 1.
Delivered fresh from 1983 for the first time in the west or post-80s era comes this badly fan-translated masterpiece of turn based tactical gameplay**.

- Attacks from the front are most easily evaded. Side attacks have an even chance of connecting. Rear attacks rarely miss.
- The Missile barrage is a 5 missile spread across 5 tiles, always.
- The AI is preeeety bad and will sometimes try and drive a ship into a rock, repeatedly. It will give up after a few tries though.
* Almost identical

- Slightly reduced probability of AI shooting eachother

I can confirm the Linux build works like a charm. Errr, wait no I mean, I only use Linux at work, there's no way I can test that version.
