Prowler sends you deep into space, to Ursa Minor Delta-V, where the Peradusins are on the attack (companies were starting to run out of subtle ways to re-identify Russia; perhaps it's a good job they weren't 'the enemy' for much longer). Fortunately you have at your disposal a Northall Q15 helicopter-jet hybrid, with advanced weaponry, a zoomable radar and strong shields.
Rescue on Fractalus is a good guide to what to expect - the action is first-person and depicted in 3D, with hovercrafts and aircraft among your potential targets. There are various game modes including air and ground combat of varying intensity levels, as well as 5 skill levels and full training modes, as well as ten set-piece scenarios. The tactical screen must be used to pick out troublesome sectors and launch advance attacks on them.
Prowler is a colorful futuristic 3D flight-sim that is fun for a short while, but gets insanely difficult so fast you'd need a lot of Tylenol to finish it. Nothing in the game distinguishes it from hundreds of other shoot-em-ups, although the low price back then probably helped (it was part of Mastertronic's budget games line). Play it only if you have already played every other shooter.
