Super space gamesmanship. Space ships race across the galaxy, dodging meteors and asteroids. Zap! Hit, they disintegrate, then another blasts off for antoher flight. Each successful trip through space earns an individual score. Totalizer records scores for competing ships. One player can race the clock or fly two ships for a high skill test. Two players can duel through the meteor storm competing for high score.
