"Star Control is a science fiction computer game series originally developed by Toys for Bob and published by Accolade. Star Control was released in 1990 and featured melee, a 2D spaceship combat, and campaigns, a series of strategic scenarios in which combat was resolved in the melee format.. Star Control II followed as a sequel expanding the original game with a plot and single player adventure. Star Control III was developed by Legend Entertainment, after Toys for Bob declined to produce the third game. Star Control I & II have a large fanbase, while Star Control III is largely forgotten. Toys for Bob released a freeware version of Star Control II as the Ur-Quan Masters and have been continously updating it since 2002."
