Trevor McFur in the Crescent Galaxy is a side-scrolling space shooter video game for the Atari Jaguar.[2] Aside from the pack-in game Cybermorph, it was the Jaguar's only launch title.

Story[edit]

The Crescent Galaxy has fallen. It has been conquered by an entity known only as Odd-It, whose lone passion is to make everything odd like it. All of the planets in this galaxy are under his rule and are guarded by his blockade. As a corporal in the Crescent Galaxy's chapter of the Interplanetary Defense Squad known as the Circle Reserves (whose main armada has nearly perished), Trevor McFur and his female feline partner Cutter seek to overthrow Odd-It.[3][4] Trevor McFur and Cutter set their coordinates for home and engage at warp nine.

Reception[edit]

In their review of Trevor McFur in the Crescent Galaxy, Electronic Gaming Monthly commented "The graphics are very nice, but the game is not very challenging, not to mention the controller cramps your hand," and gave it a 4 out of 10.[5] GamePro panned the game, saying it has generally impressive graphics but shallow, primitive gameplay, elaborating that "You scroll side-view across open, flat, non-interactive backgrounds and shoot hordes of boring, redundant enemies. There is no variance to the speed, and little technique is needed other than moving fast and shooting the right objects."[6]
