'Take your shuttle craft from the mothership and descend to two specially created landing spaces on the planet's hilly surface to rescue the stranded astronauts, which stand on the hillsides waving their arms frantically. You can only take one at a time and landing results in the nearest dashing to your craft and partial safety. Unfortunately the sky is crowded with bi-directional meteors. The graphics are cute and the sound very good, but the inlay card suggests you can fire at something when you can't. Avoiding the meteors is simply done by dodging them (a sort of frogger). Not the most addictive of Blaby's games, but still very playable. Joystick: Kempston, AGF or Protek.
