I remember playing a game on the Amstrad 6128 in the '80s or early '90s. It was a space adventure with at least part of the action flying through space and shooting alien ships.

There was an option to view the space-fight scenes in red-blue separated 3D and I think the game came with a pair of 3D glasses. The stars (or possibly just space dust!) were rendered as two separate dots, one red, one blue to simulate the 3D effect as well as the enemy ships.

The "stars" would zoom past your ship as you were flying. I seem to remember that it had full 3D movement, à la Elite, although it might have been more limited than that. What's the name of this game?

  • I know this is sort of a test question, but a single web search and/or Arqade would have this answered already. It really isn't that obscure... – user12 Jun 27 '16 at 15:00
  • @jdv - id it's so easy, why not answer? Wanderer (the one where you traded cats) had 3D in other versions, but I don't remember the CPC one as 3D. 3 Deep Space never had an Amstrad release. – scruss Jun 27 '16 at 15:52
  • @scruss, because answers based solely on web searches are not good answers. – user12 Jun 27 '16 at 16:33
  • @jdv I've been searching for this on and off for literally years. I'm sure Wanderer 3D is the right game although I haven't downloaded it yet to verify. What's your simple search that finds it immediately? – CJ Dennis Jun 27 '16 at 18:47
  • Once assumes the game will be on many lists, including this one. If the game had "3D" in the title, then that narrows it down. Typical searches should yield descriptions and images that might jog your memory. – user12 Jun 28 '16 at 2:41

Wanderer 3D was not with glasses on the Amstrad.

Could it be Relief Action from Loriciel? (http://cpcrulez.fr/GamesTest/relief_action.htm)

  • You might be right! The colour separation is the way I remember. I'll check it out/ – CJ Dennis Dec 7 '16 at 23:19
