E.S.S. Mega

A DOS game was developed by Tomahawk and then released by Coktel Vision in 1991, the game was called E.S.S. Mega. Now you can relive the memories by playing it online here.

E.S.S. Mega description

The representative of the rare destinations in the simulator – a simulator of the space station. Unlike the Space Shuttle and MAX, this game is much more friendly to the player (that does not negate its overall difficulty and complexity of interface). The strategic element here, by the way, often prevails over "simulator".

The game includes a long campaign, dedicated to the withdrawal station in orbit and maintaining its subsequent functioning. That is, in the beginning of the game, you must prepare the Shuttle for flight, gathering all necessary (for example, to take the right amount of fuel), to complement his team. After that, put into orbit (simulator mode, where we directly control the flight), then starts the management of the space station. The game has a lot of information detailing the gameplay is present, it is objectively easier to understand than in other games of this kind. However, options for different combinations of cargo and crew are very small.

Her schedule is also much prettier – it is not just all bright and beautiful, but often there is a serious hint of three-dimensionality. But in the rare subgenre of simulations of real spacecraft complexity has always been valued above all, so the game will be slightly lower than that of peers.
