Quite a revolutiionary game on the Spectrum that pushed the now aging machine to it's very limits.
Using a new graphics engine called Freescape, the player can explore the landscape in 3D shaded graphics, admittedly in a very low frame rate, but revolutionary for the time.
The idea is to travel round a moon which has dangerous levels of gas building up under the surface. A series of refineries must be placed on the surface to remove the gas levels safely.
This would be a lot easier if it was not for the moon's defense systems, which have lasers, force fields and other such traps, that must be disabled or destroyed to progress.
Buildings can be explored, and puzzles solved to move to other quadrants.
More acclaimed games from incentive to use the graphics routine are Dark Side, Total Eclipse, and Castle Master.
