Many a happy hour was wasted playing Lander – the free version of Zarch – on school computers. The gameplay was simple – you pilot a mouse-controlled lander over a 3D landscape, zapping aliens that are trying to infect the Earth with their viruses.
It's the execution that's amazing – it's hard to believe this game, with its 3D graphics and fluid gameplay, was created in 1987.
