Description

Space Quarks is a fixed-screen shooter for the home computer. The game is very similar to arcade classics like Space Invaders, Galaxian and Galaga.

The player controls a tank, which can move left and right across the bottom of the screen. Fire missiles at the alien invaders flying overhead in a variety of formations and patterns. But watch out... after you start shooting and hitting targets, you can bet those aliens will start firing back!

Clearing levels leads to more lives ("tanks"), more points added onto your score, and, of course, even more levels of aliens to clear.

Trivia

Space Quarks was probably one of the more widely-distributed games for the Apple. Apple included it on the "Apple at Play" compilation disk that came with Apple II computers, making Space Quarks the Apple home computer equivalent to a console "pack-in" game (like Super Mario Bros for the NES).
