Planet X3 is finally here!  It is the long-awaited sequel to Planet X2.  However, X3 is designed for MS-DOS compatible computers.  And what’s cool is it will run on the oldest and slowest of MS-DOS computers.

CGA 4-Color Mode

CGA Composite Mode

Tandy 16-Color Mode

VGA 256-color Mode

Additional supported modes. These modes have been added after the game was released, and so many of the physical copies of the media already in circulation and even in my back stock do not have these updates.  However, the digital download will include the updates.

    For someone who was too young to play DOS games, Planet X3 was a great choice to get started many years too late. The game is challenging for a beginner like me, but it is good at making me use strategy and decision making skills in a higher stakes game than a tame game like SimCity. The many wonderful different maps and the soundtrack on cassette really make it good value. In fact, I am considering getting Planet X2 for the C64. My main complaint is that David is not going back in time to sell Planet X3 and becoming a millionaire. Keep up the good work and keep them coming!

    This game is amazing! I am actually going to be playing it again now after I write this review. Something that would be nice is to be able to buy the digital download separately, but I got this on Kickstarter, so I didn’t have to worry about it. In any case, great game man! I hope to see more!
