Emulated in MAME ! [CONSOLE] Atari 2600 Cart.
Malagai © 1983 Answer Software Corporation.
Help Commander Harrington Crag of the starship 'Endless Search' escape the hot pursuit of the MALAGAI. A game that offers different playing speeds and strategy levels that is sure to challenge your mind and skills. Get ready to enjoy the action! This is the first of ANSWER SOFTWARE's new and exciting series of video game cartridges designed specifically for user programmability.
When you are trying to catch a MALAGAI they will run from you. You can use this to your advantage by 'herding' them towards the airlocks to increase your chances of reaching the airlocks before being captured.
After you have captured a MALAGAI, they will begin to chase you. You may have to lead them away from your true destination temporarily to get them out of the immediate vicinity of the airlocks or compartment.
Keep your eye on the time line at the bottom of the screen. If you are running out of time, return to your compartment quickly so as not to lose a crewmember - and you will regain additional time.
When you capture (make contact on the screen) a MALAGAI, immediately point the joystick in the direction you wish to go in order to reach the airlock in time - you are only allowed a small head start and if you take too long you will be captured immediately!
