    StarFighter 3000 (スターファイター3000), known simply as Star Fighter in North America (having originated as a 3DO game with the same name), is a 3D third-person spaceship shooter for the Sega Saturn.

    Gameplay

    In StarFighter 3000 players control a space ship in a fully 3D environment. Usually the objective is to destroy specific targets without running out of energy.

    Unlike other versions of the game, the Saturn port of StarFighter 3000 introduces fogging to mask geometry pop-in. The side effect of this approach is that the colours in each level are far less saturated, and all of the in-game backgrounds are grey (save for those set in space).
