In the beginning, there was a beginning, and in that beginning spawned an understated classic.
In space, no one can hear you scream...
Make no mistake about it this bad boy was hard, really hard! Asteroids type graphics and a fist full o' credit's had you attempting to essentially land the Apollo 1969 spaceraft on at different landing zones on the moon, or at least in the mind of an obsessed kid. ;-).
Sounds easy? Rotate left and right, thrust.... Throw in a limited amount of fuel and gravity inertia,coupled with the hazourdous mountain ranges and we have game, an absolute classic, one which never got the credit (excuse the pun) Atari deserved.
If your up for a challenge then this really does come with a pre-warning. Games were hard back in the day, but this takes it to a level where you'l just wanna' keep tryin' to land that sucker.... Easy on the thrust though, fuel is limited and is constantly burning, more thrust, more burn, and when ya' hear that noise tellin' ya' on empty, well... I think you know where this is goin', straight into a rock face, but slow enough to watch.
So... Strap in,.. No ones gonna' help out there... In space, no one can hear you scream...
