Playing The Game
Use the keyboard controls
described below to maneuver your ship, destroying
as many asteroids as you can while avoiding
collision with them. Also watch for the
flying saucers armed with guided missles.
If you warp into hyperspace, your ship will
momentarily disappear then reappear on another
part of the screen, gradually fading in.
During this time the ship is invunerable.
Likewise, when your ship is destroyed, a
new one will appear in the center of the
screen. You can still maneuver and fire
during this time so if you are in imminent
danger, you have a couple of seconds to
get out of it.
