Your ship has to make an emergency landing to pick up tools, water, fuel rods and oxygen. On each screen there are six items to collect. When you've got them all, return to your ship.
This screen lets you set options, see the high scores, or start the game. You can choose which game screens you play:
Screen 1: Fast Missiles
Screen 2: Lifts
Screen 3: Conveyor Belts
Screen 4: Electrified Doors
To start the game, use the Space bar for keyboard control or the joystick button for joystick control.
The top line shows lives left (asterisks), score, bonus score and difficulty level. The bonus score decreases all the time. If it gets to zero, you die. When all the screens have been cleared, you start again at the next difficulty level (maximum 9). You get an extra life every 2,000 points (maximum 5). To collect the items, jump when you're underneath them.
Tape: CHAIN"ORION" (RETURN)
The program loads itself in two parts, taking about three minutes altogether. There is a copy of the program on each side of the tape.
