is a third-person isometric shooter video game. While dodging
(and blasting) security droids, you search for the red transporter
cube - your ticket to the next level.
droids sweep through each room using their detection beams to
find you. If you interrupt their beam, they shoot off a deadly
laser in your direction. If you are quick enough to dodge the
shot, all droids are alerted and converge upon the location of
your last detection. Armed with a laser gun of your own, you can
fire back and destroy the droids. Every droid you destroy, however,
attracts the attention of the others so you would be well advised
to "pick your spots".
is as much a strategy game as it is an action game. The third-person
isometric view allows you to plan your route to the transporter
cube and to plan your attack (or retreat) on the security droids.
As you venture through the 100 levels, strategy will become an
increasingly important skill to compliment your shooting skills.
100 unique levels, Laser Assault also comes with a level editor.
This editor allows you to design, edit, save and play your own
customized levels. Your levels are exported into an ASCII file
which can be played by other Laser Assault gamers.
