This is a Lander type game where you must guide your craft down to a planet's surface and rescue stranded astronauts or miners or something and return them to the mothership above. To get down to the planet you must dodge your way through the masses of asteroids, and then return through layers of enemy shipping. Controls provide a retro rocket for braking, important when landing as an inaccurate or fast landing results in death. In the return journey the retro becomes a gun to shoot at the aliens. On higher levels there is also a force field as added hazard. Throughout, the graphics are very good and move smoothly. Thus is a very difficult game and bound to be addictive. Takes time to get good at it. Sensible control keys, joystick: AGF, Protek or Kempston. 3playing speeds, over 50 screens, generally recommended. Overall CRASH rating 80% M/C.
