Nonterraqueous

This game is one whch puts some full priced offerings to shame. With over 1,000 screens of well designed problems to negotiate, fast action, smooth well animated sprites and a set of problems to solve, this game is a must for any arcade addict.

Put simply, it is a variation on the maze search and dodge theme, but objects have not merely to be collected but also used to enable you to get further into the game. The ultimate objective is to explore the inside of a giant mountain to find and then destroy the computer which controls the population of your planet. Options for various joystick interfaces are provided and keys QAOP give up/down/left/right movement. Space fires and I and U allow specific actions. The game is very addictive and the inclusion of a high score chart encourages you to keep trying to improve.

Would I buy it? Yes!
