-- Incoming Transmission, Kupier Belt mining facility --

S.O.S.. S.O.S.. Unknown extra-solar activity has shutdown all asteroid mines throughout the region.
Autonomous defence systems have gone renegade, and a number of personnel are stranded in the depths.

Calling anyone within range - immediate rescue is required.. The corporation is offering attractive rewards to all contenders!

-- Transmission Ends --



LEFT/RIGHT - rotate ship
UP - apply thrust
SPACE - fire guns


Pilot your dropship through a series of cave systems to rescue the colonists from the facility.

You have only enough space to carry 4 colonists at a time, and must return to the surface to offload and refuel.

Health is depleted from collisions with the cave walls, or being shot by the defense turrets. You may replenish some health with each colonist you pick up.

Fuel is limited so conserve thrust when possible. Fuel is replenished fully by visiting the surface, and also gained by destroying defense turrets.
