Rocket Launch (Atari 8-bit Cassette 50 Game 37)

Click/tap images to enlarge

What is going on here? There’s some non-moving blobs. There are some flying triangles. There is my (non flying) triangle, which can be extended to two triangles. Now, the instructions clearly say that the flying triangles are ships and I must catch as many as I can. Are we on the sea? What happens to the ships I capture? Where are the rockets form the game’s title? I’ve been deceived again by Cassette 50. I’m always letting cassette 50 deceive me. When will I learn? (I’ll never learn).
