Virgin always have good, clear instructions, and this was one of the better first issue games. Features: Galactic war report, detailing mission, aliens left, starbases and stardates left: Computer call - main menu: Long range scan, well laid out with the eight adjacent sectors shown: Navigation, menu (or moving from sector to sector: Battlestations, arcade style viewscreen with four-directional movement and fire at visible enemy. Docking with a starbase is tricky, and there are also time portals in space as well as asteroid storms to contend with. On balance a reasonable game with ten skill levels.
