Tyrian is an arcade-style vertical scrolling shooter. The story is set in 20,031 where you play as Trent Hawkins, a skilled fighter-pilot employed to fight Microsol and save the galaxy.
In February 2007 the source code for Tyrian was licensed for a small group of developers to re-write it in C, for a project named OpenTyrian, licensed under the GNU General Public License. Following that announcement, in April 2007 Daniel Cook announced the free availability of his Tyrian artwork under generic liberal terms.

Awesome game. It has great controls, good graphics (for a 1995 DOS game that is) and a memorable soundtrack. I also like the ship and weapon upgrade system and the fact that it is possible to take several hits before losing a life, which makes it a less hardcore game than some others of this genre.
After playing the shareware version a gazillion times back in the 90's it feels good to finally being able to finish this little gaming gem.
