Space Prisoner 1.4

Like Asteroids in three dimensions, but more...

It is the far future. The Rek are an enemy race which have been warring with humans for years. In the latest round of battles, many human prisoners were captured. They are being held in several massive Rek prison cubes, floating in space.

Your mission: rescue the prisoners! In each zero-g prison cube, you must blow up the prison asteroids, and release the trapped prisoners inside. They will then float to you and jump into your ship.

Naturally, the Rek have prison guards. Their wall guns, guard ships and sentinel ships will attempt to stop you from completing your task...

And remember - you're in space, so there is no gravity, and there is no "up"... don't get disoriented or you'll be space dust!

Mac Games Fixes and Changes

Changes from Version 1.3 to 1.4:

- Major performance improvements! Explosions and other graphics-intensive operations now render smoothly, even on slower Macs without dedicated graphics cards.

- NEW roll controls! Now you can roll the ship around its longitudinal (nose-to-tail) axis. Maneuvering in zero-g just got even more fun!

- NEW camera views! Now you have 7 different camera view options instead of 4. Useful backward-looking, right side and left side views let you scout around your ship and see what's around you.

- NEW "True Newtonian" physics model option! Pressing "N" during gameplay will let you experience true, frictionless outer space maneuvering - it's realistic but also pretty wild! You might just get a bit dizzy. :) Press "N" again to restore the normal, "artificial mild-friction" environment.

- NEW High-contrast application icon

- Updates to the splash screens

Mac Games Rating Tom Spreen (2/14/2009 - version 1.3)
Hi Nico, it's the developer here. Thanks for your thoughts. I've done extensive testing with the aiming and I think it's OK... but the 3D nature of the game can make it hard to hit targets unless you're fairly close to them. I agree that in general, it's not one of the easier games out there! Flying in zero-g 3D is difficult at the best of times. If you have any suggestions for a better control setup, I'm all ears. Also: can you be more specific about what you think the problems with the aiming system are? Email them to me at Thanks! (I'll rate it as a "3" to stay neutral!) ;) Tom
Mac Games Rating Nico (2/10/2009 - version 1.3)
it was a good idea to begin with, but the frustrating controls and the broken aiming system really killed the game, fix those issues and possibly put a difficulty option in and you'll have a good game, but ATM I really cant recommend it.
