The Prize

Based on games like Shamus and Berzerk, this one is set in a multi-screen maze filled with murderous aliens. Your mission is to get through four levels of maze to the chamber of Midas where some secret is kept.

Your ship fires laser bolts and can move in eight directions in search of the code pods that have to be collected in numerical order to take you to the next level. Once collected you go to the base marked B to progress. Other bases are the energy bases and power plants that give you immunity and extra laser bolts respectively.
