BOOSTMAN IN SPACE is a side-scrolling arcade-style video game with a classic sci-fi feel.
You control BOOSTMAN, extraordinary feline superhero, as he visits OUTER SPACE on his lunch break.
BOOSTMAN is feeling hungry, so it up to YOU to help him to collect as many articles of food as he can!
The more food you collect, the more likely you are to proceed to the next level of BOOST. The higher the level of BOOST, the more points you collect!
However, the clock ever ticks down...
Up and down arrow keys to control BOOSTMAN
B to use boost powerup
M to use magnet powerup
The most common article of food to be found in space is the cat crunchie. These are to be found scattered liberally about the inky void, affording you small points and minor quantities of boost.
Also to be found in the limitless depths of the beyond are the infinitely more desirable, human foods, such as broccoli, donuts, bananas, and cake. These will give you ten times the points of a cat crunchie, and twice the boost.
There are a number of different powerups to be collected in Boostman in Space. They all operate differently, and can be particularly effective in combination.
Once collected, this powerup remains in your inventory until such time as you choose to use it. When the time comes, press B to take yourself to the next level.
Full Boost Powerup
This powerup takes you to the highest level of boost known to man - only to be used if you think you're ready. Press B to activate.
Boost and full boost powerups replace each other in the inventory.
Once you've picked one up, press M to activate this powerful piece of magnetically charged iron. It will instantly create a powerful magnetic field, rendering pieces of food and other powerups powerless! You can collect them all, for a limited time!
The umbrella, when stumbled upon, is equipped automatically. This rainwear essential considerably broadens your food-collecting range, giving you a fabulous advantage. As the main action takes place in the airless vacuum of space, the umbrella provides no drag and thus is no hindrance to attaining fantastic speeds.
This powerup spawns a lot of food immediately ahead of you - particularly effective in combination with the magnet or umbrella.
For each item you collect, the score is multiplied by the level of boost you are on at the time of collection. So, for example, a crunchie is worth one point at Boost Level 1, and worth 9 points at Full Boost
The base scores are 1 point for a crunchie, and ten points for a powerup.
The base score is then multiplied by the amount of time (in seconds) that you've spent in the game, and again by the highest level of boost so far attained.
The clock starts out at 60 seconds. When it reaches zero, the game is over.
Each time you move onto a higher level of boost, 20 seconds is added to the clock. It can be useful to hang on to boost powerups for when time is running out.
Good luck, fair traveller! May you have a good lunch!
