Synopsis

Plot

You are in a spaceship whose engines have failed while orbiting a planet. As you are drawn towards the planet by its gravitational pull, you are in danger of being burnt to a crisp in the planet's atmosphere. You must repair the ship before this happens.

Notes

This adventure was published by VNU Business Publications in Personal Computer World, April 1983, pp. ?-? and reprinted in Personal Computer Games, issue 1, Summer 1983, pp. 75, 79. I haven't seen the original version, but the latter version is unplayable due to all the bugs. You can download a bug-fixed version below.
At the time of writing, an extensively modified version was available at bbcmicro.co.uk, but this has a couple of bugs that haven't been fixed and has introduced a couple of new bugs that weren't in the original listing, so you can't complete the game.
