Star Force Star Force is very similar to the arcade game Star Fire. The player must shoot TIE Fighters from a first-person perspective. Using the numeric keys the player can rotate the view into any directions. Each time the player hits a TIE Fighter it will explode and the player will receive points. If the player holds the targeting reticule on a TIE Fighter for a while it will lock-on, any hit after that will automatically hit. The TIEs also shoot back. Although the player cannot die from hits, it does reset the score multiplier. The game is over when the player is out of fuel.

The player must be conservative with lasers as each shot will build up heat, if the player fires too many lasers in a row the firing mechanism will overheat, leaving the player vulnerable for a while. The player can also control the speed of his spacecraft to either slow or fast. In the HUD a small radar view is visible which shows where TIE Fighters are about. [source:mobygames]
