Gah, I remember this throat-slitting simulator existing, but I can't remember its name. Is it Green Beret? It's something generic like that, I think.

Hmm... was this game released by Microprose?
Nope.

A sentence "fire is a deadly force of nature" contains all the words of game's title. (laugh)

Is it P.O.W.?

Edit: I missed the clue...

So...Deadly Fire Force?

Green Beret was released in the early 80s I think - I remember it coming out on the Speccy when I was knee-high! (laugh)

Deadly Force?
Deadly Nature? 8-0
Fire Is A? (roll)

I spent many weeks on that game. Was great fun. Castle of the Winds!
The author released the game for free later, so while it may be a bit of a problem getting it to run on modern computers, I'd still recommend you try it out:

Since there's not really much probability that I'm wrong, here is my screenshot. A bit easy, but I'm in a hurry:

None of those. But...I guess you caught on that it involved space?

It does?!?!?!??!?!

Er... Purple Saturn Days?

(Or are you saying that "Space" is part of the title? 8-))

Space is not part of the title. I suppose in the form of a hint, I could say that the title DOES involve a...spacey thing?
I wasn't expecting this one to be so hard.

And no. Not Purple Saturn Day (was surprised that such a game name actually existed :D)

Purple Saturn Days was actually quite a fun game - although it was more of a cool concept than anything. 8-)

No idea about this game though I'm afraid.

It seems you're right, festilligamble. It supposed to be easy guess but I never even heard of that game :)

I could be anal and ask you to be more exact (Protostar: War on the Frontier), but yeah, you're right, festilligamble!

It wasn't a super-amazing game or anything, but I'm surprised the resident experts didn't know about it :D. Was an okay enough first person space exploration trading/fighting (and a small bit of adventure RPG) type sim in the vein of the Star Control series.
