If you have the patience to learn, this space-quest game offers surprisingly compelling gameplay and a healthy feature set at no cost. Before you play Wazzal, a fellow named Dusky Joe informs you that you are captain of a band of space pirates and helps steer you in the direction of your first mission. After that, you'll travel around the galaxy undertaking various tasks while avoiding asteroids and engaging in battles with alien ships. However, maneuvering your ship and firing can take a while to master. Even though the program lets you reconfigure the controls, it users numerical code to represent keys instead of actual names, which further complicates matters. Other features include the ability to disable sound and music, show nebulae and stars, and enable Easy mode. Though the graphics aren't amazing, they are much better than you'd expect for a game that won't cost you anything. If you're short on cash, have some time on your hands, and enjoy games with an outer-space theme, Wazzal may be the game for you.
