Epoch (video game)
|Genre(s)||Space combat simulator|
Epoch uses a first-person camera to aim at oncoming enemy spaceships. The player must steer the reticle in-line with the enemy ships in order to destroy them before they destroy the player's ship. The player does not have infinite ammo or fuel, but can steer the ship towards friendly spaceships and bases to refuel.
Barry Gittleman reviewed the game for Computer Gaming World, and stated that "If you are the type that likes simple games, like Space Invaders, pinball, etc., you will probably have a bit of trouble adjusting to Epoch, which at times can be a very high speed game. Most computer gamers, especially space and shoot-em-up lovers, will enjoy this game. It is planned out in detail, and well programmed."
