Description

Use your paddles to pilot your orb in the search for the disappearance of Vern Grenington and his "entire vehicle service station" on Vicinity NAW-911 which "has long been known to contain a Black Hole."

According to the game manual because most of their pilots grew up in the era of video games in the late 20th century, they have designed the orb control panel to resemble a video game! So just target your orb to eliminate the objects you see in the center of your screen in every level (however, in some levels you may have more "subtle" approach) in your path to The Black Hole...

Trivia

3D effect

The original package of Beyond The Black Hole came with a pair of cardboard glasses that players could use to simulate a 3D experience using a technique that, unlike traditional shutter or red/blue glasses, fooled the player's depth perception into "perceiving" the orb as moving in and out of the screen. This was done by using the brain's predictive ability and the left-to-right motion of the orb. If the premise and gameplay of the game seems odd, it's because the entire game was fashioned around being a pseudo-3D game.

And the glasses? One eyehole was completely covered, and the other was open. So in order to to simulate the 3D experience, one can simply cover one eye while playing the game.
