Commodore 64

Based on the VIC 20 classic Blitz, this little C64 game was actually written for Jason's mum to play after the keyboard (and in particular the space bar) on his trusty white breadbin breathed it's last and couldn't run it any more.

The game itself is very simple; your spaceship is running low on fuel and needs somewhere to land and the only place anywhere within range is a deserted alien city. As you make repeated passes, getting lower each time as the fuel decreases, you can drop bombs to flatten the city with the space bar or a joystick fire button and make it relatively safe to land on.

Review: "You're continously approaching the ground and on the way you have to destroy buildings so you won't crash into them later on. There are many similar games around, but I think this is the only really good one. Great game."

Trivia: This wasn't really meant to go out, but there was a bit of spare disk space on the first Commodore Zone covermount so it was a nice filler.
