Having trouble setting up the keys for this in both beebem and b-em :x

Anyone know why in b-Em that redefining ctrl displays capslock instead, bug maybe? Might have to dig into the config file ](*,)

All my real hardware is in storage and probably need caps replaced so only option is emulation for now :cry:

EDIT: Got it working in beeb-em #-o

Oh wow, this thing is twitchy as!

Got to level 3 somehow... first level I hung around on the middle platform mostly, second level the right hand platform seems safer than the others, 3rd level I didn't make it far enough to judge...

Score: 19310

Best score so far, great little game, although no-one remembers the BBC version, always go on about it on the Speccy.

It would be a lot easier if it weren't for all the space junk...

Not great but ok to start after a few plays. I remember a few seasons ago we played a very similar game, basically I think identical but slightly more screen movement. I liked that a lot too and I like this one a lot because of the good feeling of playing that one.....so....medium low score....

I had a quick go but realised I either need to remap keys like others have done, or use a real machine.

It's a fun game, the hardest bit is where you have to descend to get into the rocket. Now up to level 4... 31,465

Beeb-Em has an options menu item to remap Caps & Control to A & S... very handy specifically for this game.

Quick hack to change the controls to the "more usual" Z/X for left & right and * for thrust, might be helpful to somebody :)

Really struggling. Can't get past level 3 at all.

Didn't quite get past Level 3 but getting pretty good at maximizing each level, hardly ever miss a bonus item.

Slight improvement but still below top scores... playing without sound is interesting as the take off status is easily unnoticed.

Score: 29670
Level: 3
