It's A Wrap: Battle For Endor and/or Yavin

This is hyperold. This is pre-RPS old. Which, according to my calculations, makes it so retro it's new, to spoonerise Tricky. Tupper prodded me to playing these, and they're simply cut-to-the-bone space-shooters which I dig to hell. Battle For Yavin comes first. Battle for Endor comes second. They're based on some obscure cult-classic science fiction films, apparently. You can get them here. There's a fancy texture and music pack you can get here too - oh, and I had a problem with white textures on Windows 7, which I solved by installing it to C:/Programs rather than the Programs-86-whateVVVVA! Win7 wanted to. There's a couple of videos below, but this is highly atmospheric, lightning fast and captures the panic of a sky full of starfighters more than anything else that leaps to mind. I think you'll dig 'em a lot.
