Game info
To run the game use "Boot floppy" from the ADFFS Filer.


Synopsis
It is the year 2240 and the evil forces of the seventh colony have gained control over the eight worlds of the solarian constellation. Your mission set by the solarian chief council, is to regain control over all eight worlds. To recapture a world you have to destroy its surface, machinery and organic structures. The seventh colony has manufactured various small fighter crafts to hinder your mission and destroy your ship by firing small homing bombs at you.

Your ship, the Redshift 15A, is equipped with triple laser banks, anti-matter turbo drive, holomap terrain scanner and solaray energy inductors. But be aware that the laser banks, turbo drive and terrain scanner may fail at low energy levels!

This just leaves us to wish you good luck on your mission!!!

Hello,

I just tried this game for the first time on my Raspberry Pi with RiscOS Direct. I found that while mounting the floppy image in ADFFS and selecting "boot floppy" works fine, the Packman version crashes randomly.

Thanks, and best regards,

Daniel

PS. the game seems to be very "inspired" by Goldrunner on the Atari ST.

Thanks for the report, I’ll investigate and get the issue resolved.

Now fixed, if you want to switch to the packaged version. The game randomly performs disc protection checks whilst you’re playing it.
