A60 Rescue Mission Released
1:45 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Following the Mac debut of Space Tripper, yet another impressive 3D
shareware title has been released this week in A60 Rescue Mission. This
title from the Quebec-based Cosmologik lets you take control of a
powerful space ship with realistic physics and colorful 3D graphics. Your mission
is to rescue exploratory pods from the attacking aliens. Here's an excerpt about
the game from the press release:

"One of the greatest interest of A60 Rescue Mission comes from the simulation of natural physic we're using.", said Mr. David Chabot, co-president and lead programmer at Cosmologik. "There is no predefined movement in A60 Rescue Mission, everything is controlled by forces and torques like those in nature. The gravity, the friction, the speed of the objects, their weight or the detection of collisions between them are all handled in real time by the physics engine."
The system requirements for A60 Rescue Mission are also listed:

  • PowerPC system with G3 processor (or good video card)
  • 35 mb of free memory (64 total)
  • QuickDraw 3D compatible card with 8 mb of video memory
  • 20 mb of free disk space
  • Mac OS 8.5 (Mac OS X Not supported)
  • QuickDraw 3D 1.6 (included with QuickTime 4) *
  • DrawSprocket and SoundSprocket 1.7.5
  • Stereo sound system or headphones recommended
