The game is shown on plan view with the landscape scrolling down or from third person. You play thre role of the Mining Engineers, escapeing in their small scout ship. You have to make your way over 100 screens of tortuous terrain to the mothership waiting at the end.
Fly over the terrain passing over "tiles" that active to add extra fuel - speed you up - slow you down. Avoid the "time slips" that return you right back to screen 1 !!!!
LOL! Yes, not an RPG - I'd have thought the screenshots might give that away.
Its originally a Codemasters game from the 80's. It's quite a challenge, but the key is learning the map and using the power up tiles to your advantage.
This game is pretty cool. It looks nice and it's easy to play. I got pretty far until I got sent to the begining. Ah screw that bitch! This is definately one of those games you'l play every so often to pass time when you're bored. Not bad at all!
