Description

Alphaprobe is based on the arcade game Lunar Lander and sees you controlling the N.S.S. Alphaprobe attempting to land on a landing pad on the surface of various planets. Viewed from the side, you are dropped from your Mothershhip and you fall towards the surface of the planet using your thrusters to control your descent. You can move your craft left or right but you can't move your craft upwards, only slow the descent as you aim for the landing pad. Using the thrusters uses fuel but you can land on fuel dumps to increase your levels. Once you land then you move onto the next planet but it is game over if you land too fast (over 10 m/s) or run out of fuel. There are five skill levels (1-5) with 1 being the easiest and on levels 3 to 5 there are also spores in the air that need avoiding.
