Accolade Ships New Action Shooter For The PC

San Jose, CA, October 28, 1996 -- Prepare to battle through more than 28 action-packed levels on your mission to destroy a mechanized fortress in Accolade's newest release for the PC, Eradicator.
Eradicator is not just another shoot'em up. Players must go where no well-equipped armada has yet to succeed. It will take a single soldier, with skill and cunning, to slip past the defenses of the living Citadel and shut down the protected power source from within. Each level will challenge you with a new mission. If you fail, the consequences are deadly. If you succeed, you'll save the galaxy.
Enter the deadly Citadel, if you dare, as one of three characters - Eleena, a feline mercenary; Kamchak, a lizard warrior; or Dan Blaze, the humanoid miner - each with their own strengths, weaknesses, weapons, and levels only they can access. Once inside, battle the advanced artificial intelligence and complete the assigned missions for each level. Eardiactor's unique 1st and 3rd person perspectives drive players to switch between views in order to solve puzzles and destroy enemies.

Players are equipped with more than 20 weapons - the lethal plasma ball or the ferocious sonic shock - or employ a unique "picture-in-picture" view with weapons like the Spider Bomb, allowing players to control their weapons remotely while seeing two views at once for maximum destruction.
Eradicator is playable with up to eight players via LAN, modem or serial link, and includes a full level editor. It requires a 486/66 MHz IBM PC or compatible, 8Mb RAM and 2X CD-ROM drive. It uses Smacker Video Technology, licensed from RAD Software, to play back full motion video sequences. Eradicator is for DOS and runs under Windows 95. It will be available at an estimated street price of $49.95.
