For years I have been a SF fan, but one book seems to have eluded me; the book of the Faluvian Empire. I became so engrossed with the excerpt from the book on the cassette inlay that I quite forgot it was the program on the cassette that I was reviewing. However, I came back to earth, and loaded the program with no difficulty.

All the instructions you need appear on the screen, and the key overlay provided ensures that you have the essential commands at your fingertips... literally.

When you press start, a maze appears on the screen. This represents the corridors of a space fort, populated with five kinds of robots, who, together with evil Orville, are bent on your destruction. A record of the highest score is kept for reference.

The action is very smooth, and once you have got used to the controls the game is a lot of fun. It would be even better using joysticks.
