Space Ranger

"A disappointment on every level, Space Ranger is one game that most Electron owners would do well to avoid."
Electron User Group


A team of astronauts taking part in lunar exploration are stranded on the moon. Your job is to pilot the lunar module to make a successful landing on the moon, pick up the astronauts and ferry them to safety. You will have to make a number of journeys because you can only fit in one person at a time. But there are problems - the surface of the moon is riddled with craters so you can only land on certain spots; also a freak asteroid storm is making landing and taking off extremely hazardous!

Playing Instructions

You are the pilot of a lunar module sent to rescue a team of stranded astronauts from the surface of the moon. The moon is pitted with craters and there are only five flat landing pads where you can land. You have only four modules, so collisions must be avoided. Unfortunately, there is an asteroid storm going on! Your mission is to guide the module down from orbit, through the asteroids, and land safely on one of the landing pads. Then you have to take off back through the asteroids to resume your orbitting pattern. You must keep doing this until you have landed at each of the five pads. Only then can you move on to the next mission - and it'll be a tougher one!
