Game Objective
WELCOME TO YOUR MISSION!

BACKGROUND
200 years on from Driller times, the Ketars take revenge. On the Dark Side of Evathís other moon, Tricuspid, a giant weapon, Zephyr One, has been constructed aimed to blow Evath to bits. To gain sufficient power, a network of† ECD's (Energy Collection Devices) were constructed around the moon. The suspended solar cell at the ECD apex collects energy from Evathís sun then transmits this energy through the power line matrix for the final assault on Evathkind.

OBJECTIVE
To avoid mass panic on Evath this mission is highly confidential. You have been dropped inconspicuously on Tricuspid into a safe drop zone by a routine patrol ship. Your mission is to destroy every ECD, thus disabling the Zephyr One weapon and saving Evath from certain destruction. Score guide - first week target - one million points.

YOUR EQUIPMENT
Your space suit comes complete with quad lazers, a plasma band shield, jet power pack for extra mobility, plus a small supply of fuel.

YOUR VIEW
The display shows the Freescape(TM) generated view through your space suit helmet. The LED lights to the right indicate the rate at which the ECDís are collecting power. When the top LED lights, Zephyr One will fire!!!

TIME IS CRUCIAL
Evath is only minutes away from destruction. Every time an ECD is successfully disabled the energy collection rate will be slowed, thus allowing more time.

MISSION INFORMATION
The following information has been collected by previous unsuccessful missions:-
ECD's
If an ECD is shot - it will be disabled. If the ECD is connected between 2 other active ECD's the device will regenerate immediately.
POWERPORTERS
A product of future technology These suspended slabs are instant Teleportation devices.
PLEXORS
These are "tank like" defences placed around Tricuspid. they will attack if you are within range.
TELEPOD
This was used by the Ketars to gain access to restricted areas. before abandoning the moon the Ketars hid the telepod crystals. These must be located before the telepod can be activated.

ONLY THE BEST WILL SUCCEED.
GOOD LUCK!
