Remake of Thrust, an old C64 game (although I first came across it on the school BBC Micros). The first game I ever saw that had anything approaching "proper" physics, I owe it a lot.
X fuel scoop/tractor beam/shield (burns fuel)
Up to thrust, L/R to rotate
Extra life every 10000 points
Grab the pod and escape the level! Shoot the reactor (but not too much...) to temporarily disable the turrets! Features possibly the worst version of Rob Hubbard's music ever "composed"!
Don't play around with the level wraparound too much, especially after you've grabbed the pod
SCORE: 00. Gosh, I wonder what's going on under the hood there
Only 6 levels. The original stared playing around with reverse gravity and invisible levels after that
You can't shoot fuel (or your own pod...) unlike the original
Devs might find my Byte-pair compression for the endgame screen (tab 3, "DRAWEND") of interest.
