Star Reach Game Free Download & Install Guide

Author: Glenn Scrima

Star Reach is a real time strategy game from the mid 90's. You have the ability to control one of seven races in the game. Furthermore, there is a choice between which space unit you personally command as well. The game was released at the point where 3-D was slowly taking hold of the game industry. However it still uses a conventional 2-D engine.
