Game Instructions –
When starting, your M5 will ask “LEVEL?”, to which you should reply with a number from 0 to 5. In the game, TOMATO (the little guy on the screen) is being attacked by LANDERs, and you must maneuver him so that you don’t get hit.
Use the [;] and [:] keys to move, and the right Shift key to activate your propulsors. If you don’t do anything, you’ll plummet down quickly, so make sure to control TOMATO carefully.
This game was inspired by MOON LANDER and アステロイド・ファイター (Asteroid Fighter), both from the May ’83 issue of Micom BASIC.
