This is more like it. This is the graphical style that I will always associate with Cassette 50.

This one is simple. Press the Space Bar when you think your rocket (that red thing sitting on the blue bar) has enough fuel. If it does then you fly away safe. Hooray.

If it doesn’t the screen fills with evil green stuff. Arrrrrggghghghghhhh. This is supposed to be an explosion, I think.

Apparently if you get off the top of the screen you “survive for another mission”. Another mission where you get to do the same thing. I think I’d be looking for a new job after the first time I narrowly escaped from an exploding planet, thank you very much.

Look how much fun this game is. Look!
