New World Computing 



According to New World Computing, the future will be a time where Megacorporations will be powerful enough to be above the control of the governments. Zephyr, one of the latest games from the company, offers you the opportunity to see what awaits us in this future.

Everything started in the 21st century when mineral resources became exhausted and in order to prevent Earth from a major disaster, the United Earth Government formed the Planetary Battle Circuit (PBC). This was a place where the top six companies had to fight each other to win the rights to Earth's natural resources. With technology improvements throughout the years that enabled space travels, the PBC evolved into the Interplanetary Battle circuit (IBC). The game starts in the year 2365 when Megacorps shows their latest challenger, the Zephyr, a hover battlecraft.

Your role will be to pilot one of these powerful fighting machines for one of the six companies mentioned above. Each of them will propose to you tanks specially modified with devices according their respective specialties. For example, Unlimited Power Supply is the best company for energy storage devices, Positronix is the leading manufacturer regarding weapons, and Vertix Shielding is your best choice for shields.

The action takes place on several alien worlds ranging from Earth type, aquatic planets through desert and icy worlds. Each world comes with its own textures and backgrounds, and the music also changes as you move from one battle circuit to another. The game in itself provides the player with a classic first person perspective view with several instruments available on the screen of the cockpit. Damage screens, radar, compass, countdown clock and other useful devices will give you information in the battle arena.

The controls are similar to those used in the other games of this type, except of course you can not jump or crouch with your hovercraft. However, you can move up and down and then, and you need to be at the same height to fire upon your opponents or other targets. In the battle arena, there are also bonuses randomly placed that will provide you with better weapons, upgrades for your missiles and other things like battery recharge.

Zephyr is a futuristic combat/racing simulator setted in outer space. The premise of the game is that on the 24th century mankind has overpopulated earth and is forced to settle on different worlds around the galaxy looking for resources and space. The world of the future however, is not a happy one, and it's ruled by rival ultra-gigantic corporations that struggle against each other for the rights to settle and exploit worlds. The battles for those right are made through organized vehicular combat at the Interplanetary Battle Circuit and the races are fought on hovercraft-like vehicles called "Zephyrs".

You play a Zephyr pilot and proceed through a set of linear plot-related missions fighting for the corporation of your choice. Each offers a customized Zephyr and each has advantages and disadvantages.

The game itself is a cross between Doom and Hi-Octane. you have to race around maze-like cyberpunk locations (wastelands, cities, etc.) from a first person view and shoot your opponents with an independent turret-mounted cannon and collecting power-ups such as energy, shields, etc. to win the races.

For DOS/Windows (via DOSBox) [*Please review compatibility/platform sections in 'What You Get']


This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.


All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.


Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.


Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.


Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.


  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.
