Solar Winds 1 + 2 screenshot
In this fun shooting/adventure pair set in the spirit of Privateer, you are a space jockey / mercenary who takes on a variety of missions for fun and profit while watching the greater plot unfold. Top-down action is reminiscent of arcade sequences in Star Control, only a little less fun :D. Lots of cool "power-ups", enemy ships, and missions make this two of the most addictive space action/adventures ever made, despite a cliche plot. Two thumbs up!
