A spaceship 'Aspero', pretending to be a supply ship for the Allied patrolling forces, should get into the 'Red sector' near the anomaly and then infiltrate the barrier.
There will be no way back.

Kreed: Battle for Savitar

Battle for Savitar is an add-on for Kreed. In this game, you are a lieutenant of federal army, blocked in a still resisting garrison of Pluto colony. Cut off from any supplies, you are not likely to survive the next month. New monsters, new levels, weapons, advanced AI and physics can be found in the add-on.


Year 2010 A.D. FIRESTARTER is a state-of-the-art virtual reality machine. The machine gets infected with a computer virus, and, as a result of this malfunction the rules of the game get immediately altered. You are the player. Your mind is locked inside virtual reality. The life support system can keep you alive for no more than 48 hours. Can you get out this mad machine? While you are busy with your primary mission of surviving through this time clamped virtual nightmare, you can still enjoy the spectacular environment of the fighting premises. The whole world of Firestarter consists of 4 episodes, which represent four independent architectural styles. Industrial, Imperial, Space, and Ancient are those key episodes that encompass 4 levels each. What sets FireStarter apart is its mind-blowing ultra dynamic gameplay.
