Known in many gamers minds as the best RTS game of all time, Starcraft lets you choose from three different races in a battle for total domination. Each race offers different skills you can use to battle your opponents which you will need to build up by capturing resources and building various structures. The end-game can be nothing short of epic as your upgraded forces clash with the enemy in order to completely annihilate your opponents. Though Starcraft is a bit dated by todays standards, the gameplay is still top-notch and worthy of anyone who enjoys strategy games. Unfortunately, this demo is only available for the Classic Mac OS or Mac OS X versions which support the classic environment.

Developer's Description

StarCraft players embark on a collision course for galactic domination. Journey to the farthest reaches of the galaxy, where you'll take command of an elite team of Confederate Marines in this fully playable demo of StarCraft. Whether you're new to real-time strategy games or a skilled veteran, you'll be faced with the challenge of leading your troops to victory over powerful and truly alien opponents. Can you restore peace to the fringe-world of Chau Sara? There are three all-new missions that foreshadow the upcoming galactic war, an optional tutorial mission to introduce new players to the ways of war, and head-to-head play via modem, serial link, IPX network, and over the Internet through Battle.net.
