Planets (ZX81 Cassette 50 Game 37)

37 planets

Can’t a person just go and have a nice leisurely fly over a monochrome city without an astroid coming along and ruining everything? Just jumping in my little plane and heading out on a Sunday for a quick trip out instead of staying in ad vegetating to death in front of Antiques Roadshow? The answer from Planets is a resounding “no”.

And I am forever damned to seeing the message “Score 0. Best Score 0”.

Best score zero.

Zero.

Rocket Launch (ZX81 Cassette 50 Game 36)

zx81 36 rocket launch

I don’t like the look of you. And because I don’t like the look of you I’m going to fire rockets at your plane until it be blown out of the sky. And because you’re a fool you will keep flying over and over my head until I do hit you with a rocket.

What’s that? You’re flicking the Vs at me from the cockpit? Why? Because my rockets are so slow they’ll never hit you in a million years?

Balls.
