Elite?
I thought about it too, but Gurok said "obscure", so maybe a (shareware) clone of Elite?
(Btw, Elite don't have such gfx colors imo/in my rememberings)
Maybe we'll need a second screenie or an hint...

Not Elite, not Return to Fractalis. A hint? It's about killer ants from outer space. Here's another screenshot:



I've tried to make sure all of these are ungoogleable :D

Thx for those hints.
Starflight?
But it's a EA game... So not so obscure...

(Btw, about "ungoogleable", how wanna win by cheating?! ;))

Correct! That's twice in a row, Atavismus. It has to be your turn now :D

Also, I might add, this game looked a lot better on platforms other than DOS.

I guessed it was already posted... (I should have use the forum search engine)
I wanted something not hard, not Amiga exclusive.
Well, nevermind, your turn Gribbler. :)

I saw the pic, thought "Dark Souls", googled "Dark Souls like" and found "Lords of the Fallen", is it cheating?! :O

Not at all! It's called deduction. :) Go ahead with the next game!
