This game absolutely ruled all. Played it on the Atari ST with my older brother. The colony is on the 1st world (Jonnd?) but you have to go explore in your pod to find it. The location changes with each game.
So many layers to it! Haggling for stuff, finding new planets, travelling from city to city, exploring new cities on foot or in your pod, space battles, running cargo for profit.
Way ahead of its time, I think! Guys over on Sourceforge have been working on a reboot that′s in Alpha now, FYI.
Last tip! Get a ground scanner to be able to fly your ship from city to city.
As I remember it a relative left the ship to you upon his death with the requirement you find and bring supplies to build up the colony once you find it. The whole time you have to run enough cargo between ports to make a profit to trick out and keep the ship in good repair especially from pirates. Don′t for get the bear spray.
ST version was awesome. Make sure to bribe and haggle people in bars to get the cloaker and other cool pirate parts for your ship. If I remember correctly, the point of the game is to find the lost colony and safely transport the cryo-frozen citizens there. Good luck, I could never find it. And don′t forget to stock your pod up with burgers!

I played this on the Apple II, though I was rarely successful at it. Never did find the lost colony. Such an amazing game though. Very sad it never got ported to the PC. Can anyone recommend a good emulator?
I got it running with the hatari emulator yesterday (7th October 2012).
It seems a bit buggy, some clicks with the mouse react strange (it looks like it doesn′t always capture the mouse up event).
I′m looking forward to play it, but I wish I had a manual explaining things.
I played this on the apple II and loved it. Gonna try the Atari ST version and see how it compares. Graphics look better, b ased on the screen shots.. gogo monochrome!
It was originally written for the Apple II and then ported to the ST, people.
I use to own the Apple II version, wish I still had it. Loved this game! Brilliant
very cool…. but you usually have to download a different emulator… like Steem or SainT
Actually, Sundog was also released on the Apple II, but the Atari ST version is rumored to be better.
You′ll need an Atari ST emulator…The game was only ever released on the Atari ST.. See older comments (2)
