Hi Michael and all,
I'm guessing the version you have is an older one. When I purchased that
game around 1993 or so, I believe it was version 2.0.
For those who have never played this game, it was a text-based game, by
Richard de Steno, that also included PC speaker sounds. The object was to
fly your ship to Mars and land on the planet. Along the way, you had to
overcome various obstacles including aliens attacking you, being subjected
to radiation and magnetic fields, etc. You could even land on an asteroid to
look for various rocks. It was a pretty good game for it's time, and I wish
I had purchased more of the developer's works. All his games cost $20.00
each back then, and there were no demo versions as far as I know. He also
had a casino game that included four gambling games, a word game called
Sounds Like, and one called Dodge City Desperrados.
