Prepare To Start Your Descent.

Sensory overload in 360° 3-D.

Welcome to Descent™ - 27 levels of the most mind-bending, stomach-churning action game ever. Featuring true 3-Dimensional worlds with light source shading, texture mapping, 3-D morphing, directional sound effects and sizzling music, this is technology taken to the limit.

Something has happened at Lunar Base I. The Post-Terran Mining Company has lost contact with the miners and none of the mining robots are responding. The PTMC has brought in you the Material Defender to deal with the situation. Your mission is to find any survivors and find the source of threat. You will start a journey that takes you from the Moon to Pluto. Best of luck Material Defender.

Lunge straight down mine shafts, twist around never-ending tunnels and fight your way past robotic menaces in an environment that's truly 6 degrees of freedom... move up, move down, shoot everything everywhere. Hang onto your senses (and your lunch) as you drop straight down mine shafts on a ride that'll leave you spinning.

And what's the good of losing your mind if you can't share the experience with your friends? Descent invites you and your buddies to dive into the action together with head-to-head combat and cooperative two-player modem and eight-player network support.

Get ready for Descent...

Super fun, difficult, fast-paced, technologically advanced (in 1995) space shooter full of spacial disorientation, 27 interesting levels to explore, lots of weapon upgrades, and awesome music. You're even able to host a ridiculous deathmatch!

Highly recommended :D

EDIT: I made a gameplay video of level 1 for you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LXVZFbNxbUA

Used to be one of the first games I've ever played. Bought it many years after and it is still fantastic. Control is somewhat difficult because of all the possiblities (forward/back, rotations, drift left/right and climb descent). But this only makes game more rewarding once you get used to it! Levels are chalenging, enemies gets progressive thougher only missions are a bit repetitive, sweep the map, find all the keys, destroy the core and escape. Would recomment it any day. And btw, graphically it is really clear this game is from the 90s :)

I'm sure some will disagree, but this is a game that got absolutely everything right back when it first released on DOS, from sound, to graphics, to balance, to gameplay. It has that X factor that is hard to come by. It's maddening, addicting, scary, thrilling, and yet deeply rewarding. Few games back in the early 90's kept me as enthralled as this game did. The 360 degree movement made the gameplay truly unique at the time, not to mention confusing if you didn't pay attention to where you were. Combine that with the thrill of uncovering what lay ahead in the mines, the difficult bots that were out to destroy you, a great soundtrack, and action not matched by many at the time. Descent is an instant classic and it's nice that it lives again so the newer gamers can experience a piece of PC gaming history, and so those of us who were lucky enough to descend into it's depths the first time around, can revisit the mines our corpses littered more then we probably would've liked.

Descent originally a DOS game in 1995 was a whole new gaming experience for me back then.

It's basically a first person shooter with the ability to fly. You're equipped with guns, missiles, and other weapons you can use to destroy the alien threat.

Your main objectives are fighting your way through each level by collecting coloured key cards in order to pass through matching doors, each stage ends with a reactor you have to take out, and while these do get progressively harder, they also get repetitive. But it sure does increase your adrenaline as you try and find your way out to the exit in time!

Ahh it does bring back memories!

One of the classics, amongst games such as Doom and Duke 3D.

Definitely worth a try if you liked those. Beware though, it's really hard.
There's also ways to play this on a source port, if Dosbox doesn't work for you.
