Despite the fact that this game has absolutely the most completely naff title that you could ever hope to hear, Spaced Out is quite nifty.
It's more of a strategy game than anything else. You have to move your little green man across the 'holographic' board, from the bottom left hand corner to the top right-hand corner whilst avoiding the nasties. All you do is roll the dice, and making the appropriate number of moves.
You 'space out a nasty' by landing on his square, but he can space you out by hemming you in so you can't move anywhere. This results in the unpleasant practice of 'Giving In' and incurring penalty points.
You choose the size, of the board and the number of nasties that you think you can cope with, and then off you go.
Worth taking a look at for a little, bit of grey matter exercise.

Deceptively difficult thought and strategy game, with some neat graphics.
