    Been going crazy for 2 years trying to find this game... new to posting any help would be appreciated

    It was a Asteroids/Maelstrom like game but there was 3 ships to pick from i know two colors were blue and green the last one i think was red but they all had different strengths. After each round or couple of round you could purchase upgrades.

    thats all i can remember any help would be appreciated!!!

    The game is shareware and can be downloaded:

    There is no registration, but the author asks for $10 if you play it :)
