By the look of the inlay I thought this was going to be (as stated on the inlay), tantalising and frustrating, not for the easily discouraged. In fact, I doubt that I'll ever play the game again because, basically, it's Mastermind.

You are supposed to be in a spacecraft which is stationary and cannot be moved until a colour code is broken. Of course, you are in the flight path of several tons of meteors. Once the code is broken (or guessed a sequence of four colours) a graphic drawn circuit diagram connects up and you fly off to safety. All in all, I'm not impressed.
