    StarFighter 3000 (スターファイター3000), known simply as Star Fighter in North America, is a 3D third-person spaceship shooter for the Sega Saturn. Originally a 1994 Acorn Archimedes game, it was enhanced for the 3DO, PlayStation, Sega Saturn and IBM PC in 1996.

    Gameplay

    In the Saturn StarFighter 3000, players control a space ship in a full 3D, texture-mapped environment. Usually the objective is to destroy specific targets without running out of energy.

    Along with the PC version of the game, the Saturn port of StarFighter 3000 utilizes fogging to mask geometry pop-in. The side effect of this approach is that the colors in each level are less saturated, and all of the in-game backgrounds are a single solid color, unlike the gradients present in other versions.

    StarFighter 3000 supports saving directly to the Saturn Backup Memory but does not support loading files directly from the Backup Memory cartridge.
