Rescue On Fractalus

The Jaggies are evil and have taken over the planet of Fractalus to use as a stronghold. A fleet of highly trained Space Pilots were sent out to try and stop the Jaggie evil but failed, and now some of them are stuck on the planet. What can they do to get out of this terrible predicament? Your rescue mission is their only hope.

You're severely hampered by the sophisticated and highly dangerous Jaggie defence system out to zap the ship you are flying in: some real hassle!

You sit, looking through the cockpit of the ship, and have to steer over the planet to find the captured pilots in a very Captain Blood type style. The only difference between this and Captain Blood is that Blood has decent graphics, and this hasn't.

An excuse for the bad graphics could be that the game was originally released in 1986, and they were 'very jerky, but with a good fractal technique' back In Issue 33. By today's standards the layout of the game is very bask, and this may put off many of you. Sound effects are sparse, only tiny beeps for shooting effects.

Unless you want to take a trip back in time to play a game considered not suited to the Spectrum, steer well clear of this.
