Black Hole (ZX81 Cassette 50 Game 38)

zx81 38 black hole
When I was at school my friend Tom made a joke about astronomy but wasn’t really about astronomy, it was about a girl’s front bottom, which he likened to a black hole. Not many people got it, but I did because I was rude.

Now, x numbers of years later, I am trying to fathom exactly what this game is all about and I’m coming to the conclusion it isn’t about astronomy either. But neither is it about front bottoms. Not unless you are in possession of a front bottom that occasionally spews up numbers for no discernible reason and makes you go back to the start of the game.
