Vertigo is a pretty simple game to understand. It's Asteroids from inside the cockpit. However, while blasting rocks certainly has its appeal, this game turned out to be a really exciting space-based dogfight game where you battle it out with enemy ships. Everything about the game is rendered in vivid 3D graphics using the Quesa wrapper around Quickdraw 3D. There are three different types of ships, varying in their speed, maneuverability, shields, and weapons-holding capacity. Part of the challenge of the game is to become adept at flying all three ships. You can download Vertigo at the bottom of the page.

Vertigo is equipped with a variety of weapons including ion bolts (a simple ballistic projectile), lasers, bombs, and extremely lethal homing-missiles. The player also has an advanced detailed radar system that shows all objects in the game and portrays their position in three-dimensional space in relation to the player's position and orientation.

What's New:
Added menus (when game is paused) for Configure Controls, Toggle Sound, and Toggle Music.
Eliminated (read cheated my way around as opposed to legimately solving) some bugs that might have been responsible for random crashes. The game is much more crash-resistant now.
