Vertigo 1.0 Debuts
9:38 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
In what seems to be yet another title in a string of old-school arcade-style games that have recently been hitting the Mac platform, publisher Keith Wiley recently released his latest effort, Vertigo. This shooter is best described as Asteroids from a first person perspective. To make things even more exciting, players will simultaneously dogfight with enemy ships while dodging and shooting asteroids.
Taking the theme even further, Vertigo offers players a choice of three different ships that vary in terms of maneuverability, shields, and weapons. The weapons can include such high-tech toys as ion bolts, bombs, homing missiles, and lasers. For those that like to duke it out with friends, Vertigo is also networkable over AppleTalk and TCP/IP.
Those who wish to check out Vertigo for themselves can download the 3.1 MB shareware title from MacGameFiles. For more information and pics on Vertigo itself, be sure to check out the Vertigo web site.
