Game Description:

Message from Atari Mission Control: Your mission is to travel to alien planets, wipe out enemy bunkers, gather fuel units and make the solar systems safe for you and future generations of space pioneers. Fuel units should be collected on each planet. . . fuel is depleted each time Thrust and Shield/Tractor are utilized. Measures should be taken to insure ship safety. . . use Shield against enemy fire from bunkers and alien ships.
There are three solar systems in each universe, with five planets in the first two solar systems and four planets in the third. Gravity is positive. After completing missions in positive gravity solar systems, ship will travel to a a new universe with three negative gravity solar systems. Following this is a dark universe where terrain of planets is invisible, gravity is positive. Finally, ship will travel to a dark universe with negative gravity.

Scoring:
• Fuel Cells = 2500 fuel units
• Reactor = 500 points
• Red Bunkers = 250 points
• Red Ships = 100 points
• Completed mission on Red Planet = 7500 fuel units

Bonus points are based on how quickly you destroy enemy bunkers and exit planet.

Super Bonus: Super Bonus is awarded on completion of mission on first planet of player's choice. Super Bonus points are based on the difficulty of the first planet completed, with each planet in the first solar system worth progressively more points. If the player successfully completes mission on a chosen higher planet, he earns a bonus based on the number of points for the planets skipped as well as for the one just completed.
