UPDATE: The Extras page is now about as updated as its gonna get.

A mercenary squadron takes on a military cruiser.

I'd like to thank all reviewers and those who gave me feedback for making my efforts worthwhile. Expect more flash by me in future :)


Years have passed since the last invasion of planet Hivez; Years of thriving economy and colonial expansion. This would enable countless options and freedom for the ambitious if there was no strict mility supervision to put any projects on hold that are even remotely threatening to the welfare of the Hivezian empire.


A cruiser class vessel of the Hivezian military suffered a main engine malfunction while it was on patrol. It drifted off its course into a suspicious looking nebula where a shocking event was unveiled. A hidden research laboratory owned by Altyre Incorporated (An innovating company specialized in propulsion) is performing illegal weapon tests. A fighter squadron of mercenaries is launched on sight to eliminate the witnessing vessel. The Cruiser is specifically designed to fight small agile ships, but without the main engines, things will get very complicated. The crew on the cruiser cannot inform central command because the nebula is riddled with electromagnetic storms making all communication outside nearly impossible. Because of this, anything goes. This area is completely unregulated. Will they escape to report their discovery, or will they take the secret into their grave?



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Very intense of a flash

I never lost my attention to this while it was playing and was on the edge of my seat! Absolutely amazing job 10/10


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

If only it was a game.

When i first saw this it looked as if it would be the next installment of the combat instinct games. the best of all movies on newgrounds.

McFretN is truly a legend!



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Still stands the test of time

Unknown34 is right. McFretN may not have submitted in a while, but he's still a hero on Newgrounds. It's such a shame CI2 and 3 are plagued with graphical glitches with the new Flash players. Even thought this was inspired by Jumpgate, I couldn't help but think of this short when I watched the Battlestar Galactica miniseries. I love the true Newtonian physics in the dogfight. The part when the two fighters were pummeling the cruiser after the one guy kamikazes the cruiser still gives me chills.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


McFretn is truly an internet legend. He probably doesn't know it. But he is. I remember back in 2001 - 02. Truly a Legend. Take Care brother. Will never forget your games.
