This is an excellent version of the space trading classic. Like all 6502 ports of the game it was produced by the original authors, and copes well with just the joypad controls which do a great job of controlling the action instead of a keyboard.

A series of icons can be selected, which change depending on whether the ship is docked or in space, and can easily change the cockpit view or select weapons. A battery back up now holds the data, to replace the function of the other versions saving to tape or disk.
