The year is 2365. Seated in the cockpit of your junk collector a warning on the instrument panel informs you it's time for action - a nomad fighter has just been detected.

Using joystick controls you steer to the nomad's heading. At this point, your adversary appears on the screen, but your sights must be quickly set to shoot before it attacks and accelerates to a different heading.

Your purpose is not to seek and destroy, however, as this will not be rewarded by points. You are there to salvage satellites. When these have been located they are collected by the magnetic prongs seen from your cockpit. Rapid alignment is required as once the satellite is out of visual range it will have to be re-located on a different heading.

If you like this sort of simulation, you will perhaps enjoy varying the frequency of attacks, laser power and aggressiveness of nomad attackers. Although described as for more advanced players, I found it did not sustain my interest for long. Needs joystick, Extended Basic.
