Space Cavern © 1981 Apollo.
You are in command of a Mark XIV intergalactic star-cruiser in an uncharted quadrant of outer space. You land on a mysterious planet riddled with a suterranean maze of tunnels and caverns inhabited by savage Electrosauri whose horns generate electro-molecular charges capable of disintegrating you and your crew. Your photon ray pistol is activated by the joystick and the fire button. The iridescent eyes of the electrosauri light the cavern walls with eerie flashes as they stalk you, their horns crackling and sizzling. If even one blast of electro-molecular energy strikes you, your skeleton will glow inside your body as the bio-molecular compounds of your body disintegrate. WARNING: Beware the savage attack of the shaggy marsupods.
There are 48 exciting variations of Space Cavern.
Every large Electrosaurus you destroy earns you 115 points, while smaller ones are worth 165 points. Shaggy marsupods who rush at your spaceman from caves at his left and right will earn you 200 points if you can get them before they get you.
