A bit more involved than other Atari 2600 games and not as involved as others. This game has a huge ship that shoots from all sides, which is good because you will be assailed by meteors from all directions. Then you arrive on a planet where a small ship comes out of the bottom of the larger ship and you must collect the alien creatures from the planet's surface using a tractor beam. The first planet is devoid of any defenses, however all subsequent planets for reasons I am not sure of (may be explained in the manual) has two rising things on the sides of the screen that at times shoots a laser across the screen which can destroy your ship. Also, from time to time a warning will sound from the larger ship letting you know that a meteor is heading for the ship. You must return to the ship even if you have yet to collect both aliens otherwise a meteor will destroy your ship. In this game you do not get lives, but rather you have fuel. Collect both aliens from the planet and you get more fuel. Get destroyed to many times and your fuel runs out and it is game over! It was a rather fun game, but the difficulty increases if your controller does not work all that good as firing your laser at the meteors during the space scenes requires you to move in the direction the meteors are coming from. Not sure if you can win this game, but I think you can.
