Overview:

Back of Inlay

MERCENARY is a unique combination of flight-simulation, adventure and arcade fun in stunning high-speed three-dimensional vector graphics.

You take the role of a 21st century soldier of fortune crash-landed on the strife-torn planet Targ. You use your wits to acquire the means to survive and prosper.

Fly above the planet in a variety of craft, search the mysterious subterranean complexes and become embroiled in the continuing conflict between the Palyars and the superior Mechanoids.

A complete new world has been created for you to explore where all is not as it seems! Many objects can be moved under your control and relocated at will.

You only have one true friend: the ever-reliable Benson, an almost human PC, who guides you in this absorbing quest.

Your objective in this most challenging of game is ESCAPE!

YOU CHOOSE THE ACTION!
