Abandonware DOS title

Space Harrier

Space Harrier is a 3rd-person view rail-shooter developed by Sega in 1985. Space Harrier was a hit in the arcades, and later it was converted for a number of platforms, including DOS (4 years later!). The sequels - Space Harrier 3D and Space Harrier II - were never ported to DOS.

Space Harrier review

Computer and Video Games Issue 100 (February 90) - "Enter the Fantasy Zone, be the doer of derring and generally up to all sorts of jet-packin' fun in the first of this month s two re-re leases from Elite s budget label. The world of the Space Harrier is a first-person perspective 3D landscape, where weird and wonderful fauna and flora patrol the checkerboard pastures - and they've gone berserk. So power up your jet pack, load your photon cannon and defeat the beasties before they take over the Fantasy Zone. What made this game a hit in the arcades was the hydraulic chair and, as it's not-able by its absence in these conversions, the game doesn't have the same appeal. Especially when you consider the fact that all gameplay consists of is shooting assorted baddies."
