A very nice game, very well programmed and very addictive. I would say it is a bit overrated, but then I remember this was just a 16K game.

The object of the game is to assemble pieces of Rocket Ships, fuel them and travel to a new destination.
I think it lacks variety in the screens, the only changes are in the type of aliens attacking you and the ship you have to build. So after a while it can became repetitive. This put me off the game several times. Something that never happened with games such as Manic Miner.
But after all its only a 16k game.

I for that only I rise my rating to a round 4.
