Space Search (Vic-20 Cassette 50 Game 7)

vic_7_spacesearch_wp

Lost in spaaaaaaaaaace! (Because our idiot navigator can’t actually read a mp, he just snuck on board because he thought going out into the universe would enable him to stick his widge in an aline, the dirty boy. And now we all have to pay by running out of fuel and drifting for ever and ever.)

Space Search (ZX Spectrum Cassette 50 Game 37)

You’ve lost your planet, like some change down the back of the sofa, you careless idiot. Better go and find it then, hadn’t you? Mind you don’t run out of fuel otherwise you’ll be floating in space for ever and ever and ever and ever….

Space Search (Commodore 64 Cassette 50 Game 42)

Who on earth would send a space ship full of people out and then tell them they have to search for where the’re going rather than just tell them where it is? Cassette 50, that’s who. Cruel, heartless Cassette 50, happy to see people starve to death or die from lack of oxygen as they fruitlessly try and find a planet to live on.

You’re evil Cassette 50.

Space Search (ZX81 Cassette 50 Game 42)

I think this is supposed to be a bit like the old boardgame, Battleship, but in all the time I played it I couldn’t get it to find another spaceship or whatever I was supposed to be searching for.

I can only apologise to all those lost in space due to my crapness. Sorry. Sorry, sorry, sorry. Maybe you can get up to some hijinks, like in Red Dwarf or the Lost in Space TV show or something? Or maybe you can just float along in space, never being rescued by anyone. Despairing until you die of starvation or suffocation or just plain boredom.

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

Lost in space with less fuel in the tank than it would take to drive from Manchester to Liverpool, let alone across the stars to find your way home.

Face it, you’re fucked.

Let’s just hope you’re not alone while you float in space just waiting to die, eh? Years and years of no one to talk to, and you forgot to bring your travel adaptor for your phone anyway so you can’t even charge that up. And the TV only has Freeview. And you’ve already done the easy Sudoku in yesterday’s newspaper and can’t do the hard one, and even if you figure it out you already wrongly attempted it in pen and not pencil you idiot.

Like I said, you’re fucked.
