Morpheus (Rainbird)

Morpheus (Rainbird)

Packaging

The back of the Morpheus box says:

A MISSION UNLIKE ANY OTHER YOU HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED
THE VITAL MANIPULATION OF TIME, SPACE AND MONEY
ACTION AND STRATEGY COMBINED ON AN ATOMIC SCALE
DIRECT FROM THE LABORATORY OF ANDREW BRAYBROOK

MORPHEUS TAKES ITS NAME FROM THE INTELLIGENCE THAT GUIDES THE MORPHAI, A MALIGNANT FORCE SPANNING THE CENTURIES. YOUR ENEMY.

SURVIVE AS BEST YOU CAN IN AN ILL-EQUIPPED CRAFT. SAVE YOUR MONEY CAREFULLY. LEARN THE TRICKS AND HABITS OF THE ENEMY AS YOU ORDER THE DEFENSIVE AND OFFENSIVE WEAPONS, SPECIAL DEVICES AND EXTRA HULL UNITS YOU WILL NEED TO BUILD UP YOUR CRAFT INTO A VAST SUPERCRUISER OF AWESOME POWER.

BUT REMEMBER THE TIMESLICES.

TIME MAY BE YOUR ALLY. AS TIMESLICES EXPIRE, NEW WEAPONS AND SYSTEMS WILL BE INVENTED TO HELP YOU IN YOUR HOUR OF NEED.

TIME MAY BE YOUR ENEMY. TAKE TOO LONG AND WEAPONS MAY BE OBSOLETE BEFORE YOU GET THE CHANCE TO PROVE THEM IN BATTLE. WORSE STILL, THE MORPHAI MAY BECOME IMMUNE, IN WHICH CASE YOU MAY BE IN BIG, BIG TROUBLE!

MORPHEUS - THE GAME YOUR COMPUTER HAS BEEN WAITING FOR!

Details
