Shockwave Assault is a first person spaceship shooter by Electronic Arts for various platforms, including the Sega Saturn. It is a conversion of EA's earlier titles Shockwave and its expansion Shockwave: Operation Jumpgate, originally released for the 3DO in 1994. Assault compiles both titles onto one disc.

While no version of Assault saw release in Japan, PlayStation owners on the country got its versions of Shockwave and Operation Jumpgate as separate releases, as it had been with their original 3DO versions, so it's likely that the same would've happened with the Saturn. The series continued with Shockwave 2: Beyond the Gate, released around the same time as Assault, but remained a 3DO exclusive.
