Universe (Acorn Electron Cassette 50 Game 43)


Note: the BBC Micro version is identical to the Acorn Electron version

Yet more certain death in space from Cassette 50. The maudlin bastard.

Here you have to go and rescue people from planets before an exploding sun destroys them. The flaw being that there are 10 planets to save, and if you don’t save all ten you can’t win the game and get destroyed anyway, while Cassette 50 rocks back and forth laughing at your burning face and screaming cargo.

I hate you Cassette 50. And yet I love you too.
