The Post-Terran Minerals Corporation (PTMC) digs up minerals on all nine planets of the solar system, employing humans and robots to do its job. Unfortunately, the mining robots are now being controlled by a hacker, and have taken the human workers hostage. The PTMC has tried to get the robots back under their control, but communication with the mining stations has been lost. In desperation, the PTMC modifies a Pyro-GX ship for combat and hires a mercenary, codenamed "Material Defender", to fly it. The mission is to destroy the infected mines and rescue human hostages, destroying any hostile robot that gets in the way.
Considered by many to be a genre-initiating game, Descent took the successful first person 3D formula popularized previously by Wolfenstein 3D and Doom and created an environment where true freedom of movement was possible. The game begins deep below the surface of Lunar Base I where an unknown alien race has taken over the chasm of the Post-Terran Mining Corporation.
Manning your spacecraft, the object of the game is to navigate through mine shafts, twist around never-ending tunnels and fight your way past robotic menaces in an environment that's truly 360° 3D. With some truly mindboggling level design, you'll find yourself unable to differentiate top from bottom.
Coming shortly after the original 1995 PC version of Descent, the Playstation version was created as a natural fit for the console's robust 3D graphics support. Although unable to take advantage of the multiplayer network options of the PC original, there are options for two-player gaming via a link cable.

You're going down.
Begin your Descent deep below the surface of Lunar Base 1 where an unknown alien race has taken over the Post-Terran Mining Corporation. Lunge straight down mine shafts, twist around never-ending tunnels and blast your way past robotic menaces which actually learn your moves, plot and attack.
Move up, move down, shoot everything everywhere. Adjust as top becomes bottom, then hang on to your senses (and your lunch) as you pilot a life-threatening 360-degree 3D roller coaster ride from hell. Strap yourself in and prepare to go down.

We provide Prompt Shipping and careful wrapping. Standard Shipping has been taking 2-4 Weeks. Expedited Shipping has been taking 7-14 days. We will combine orders to save on shipping costs.
I have quoted the standard SAL (International Air Service 2-4 Weeks) and expedited AIR (similar to Global Priority 7-14 days). If you MUST have your package faster, you may also request the more expensive EMS (Global Express 1 Week or less).
If you really want to save on postage, feel free to ask for the MUCH cheaper MEDIA RATE postage. Most packages can be shipped via media rate for less than $5-10. However, you must agree to the very slow delivery time (6-8 Weeks or more).
