The year was 2307 and the Earth was at peace. The "united" countries, using their combined resources, had produced phenomenal technology. After centuries of "listening" and searching for extraterrestrial life in the physical realm, man had concluded he was alone in the universe. All current technologies had failed to prove otherwise. Man's discoveries now allowed travel at 95% the speed of light, the "warp" barrier yet to be, probably never to be, broken. With this capability man had traveled to all planets in the solar system. Under the coordination of the Earth Federation, he had been able to establish manned exploration stations at each planet. Planets containing fairly hospitable surfaces supported land-based stations, whereas the remaining planets had orbiting space stations. Years later, man had greatly increased the size of each station, transforming them from simple laboratories to heavily populated habitat and scientific research facilities. The year was 2307 and the Earth was at peace, until ... Bedlam.
A huge mass of energy detected and calculated to be headed directly toward the solar system was determined by the Federation to be a fleet of space ships (But we were alone?!). Man's reasoning determined the only explanation for such a huge armada had to be utter annihilation. Mankind had only one hope... a few small space ships had, in the past, been equipped with a nuclear powered, high-energy, pulsed array emmiter to facilitate mining many of the planets and larger asteroids. These ships were the only things standing between the vast alien fleet and the destruction of ALL mankind. The war had begun! Bedlam!
Bedlam is an action packed shoot'em up arcade game for the MacOS. The game play itself has some similarities to the old arcade favorite Galaga. In Bedlam you must travel to each of the planets in the solar system. Alien forces are poised to attack the habitat and research facilities located at each planet. All human life will be destroyed. It's up to you to fend off 4 waves of aliens [screenshot] and the mothership [screenshot] at each planet. You'll also have to deal with special weapons the aliens acquire along the way. It's going to be a tough job, but who else is going to do it?
If you have a black and white Mac we think you'll like Bedlam.
Please note: Bedlam went through a major revision (essentially being rewritten) which resulted in Bedlam 2. If you have a color Mac be sure to check out Bedlam 2.
Bedlam is now free. It still requires registration so please fill out the registration form.
Bedlam's source code is also now freely available. Please check the Bedlam source code page for more information.
