Manage the build-up and operation of a space station in this management/business simulation. Space MAX is one of the more interesting games of this genre, which flooded the German market in the late 80's and early 90's-- and one of the best of its kind. A quality game into the last detail, and after all it's much more fun to manage a NASA space-station instead of a wineyard as seen in Winzer. Not as strategy-oriented as Interplay's Buzz Aldrin's Race into Space, as the emphasis here is on simulation. Overall, probably one of the best space station simulations ever made-- much better than Accolade's Apollo 18 and more realistic than Karl Buiter's classic Earth Orbit Stations, althought arguably not as playable. |
Note: the download here includes both the official German version, and the never-before-seen English version that was finished, but never released. Big thanks to Dan who contributed the English text files he got from one of StarByte's programmers :) Just run the appropriate .BAT file to start either the English or German version. The manual is German only.
Note: We have been requested by Mistaril to remove the download as they have acquire distribution rights from Andreas Seebeck, the original programmer of the game and current copyright holder. Look for the game as budget shareware sometime in the near future on Mistaril's website!
