This cyberpunk action-adventure's puzzling title actually refers to a real-life dense cluster of stars in our Milky Way galaxy. The Syndicate, an unpopular governing alliance has taken over the Earth and among the resistance against them, you are an undercover agent who must unravel the plots of conspiracy-seeking journalists, mad scientists, and the Syndicate alliance. You land in a group that survived the effects of an mind-controlling virus, and disembark from a spaceship to a space station. However, only you and a companion survive an attack by Syndicate forces. At some points, you can speak to your companion, to issue orders to him.

There's three levels, the first and third being virtual rail shooters and the second a graphic adventure. The shooting levels are just a matter of aiming and shooting enemies in each room. In the second level, instead of using your weapon, you will have to use different objects to be able to escape. You can move between rooms, and manipulate objects where the cursor becomes a hand. If you do not win a battle which does not lead to the correct solution of the game, you die and must return to the beginning of the level. [source:mobygames]
