Sophisticated zapping for purists. Just enough strategy to give it some longevity. Read Review
A neat scroller that's a cut above the rest. Most stimulating, thank you Read Review
Your mission is to collect the matter transmitters (small boxes) while avoiding all the sentry and industrial robots. Once all the transmitters have been collected, you must return to base (the hemisphere you started from) to complete the zone. If you return to base before collecting all the transmitters you will be given a breakdown of your performance so far.
The game is played over four levels each with eight zones. In each level you can choose the order in which you tackle the zones. When all the zones are cleared you will automatically be transported to the next level.
On entering each zone you are given the opportunity of altering the balance of fuel, missiles and shield energy for your ship. While in the zone, press BREAK will pause the game and allow you to abandon the zone (losing your score in that zone) or abandon the whole game.
The top third of the screen shows your ship's panel. The panel shows, from Left to Right:
O - Left, P - Right, S - Up (Inwards), Z - Down (Outwards), N - Fire
You may use a Sinclair or Kempston joystick if you prefer.
Q/W - Increase/Decrease Height
On the Main Menu, you will see the following options:
To select an option, move the pointer to your choice and press N (or Fire on joystick).
To load on a 128k spectrum, select the Tape Loader option from the start-up menu.
