Starting out as one of the explorers
I don't know what that thing is but it doesn't look friendly.
These are raindrops you don't want falling on your head.
I went down a well
Hmm. I wonder what that is.
This does not look good.
I lost all my lives so the Earth got creamed.

One important thing a player shall do: read the instructions.
A piece of the story of Terramex.
Controls are fundamental. For example "T" is a very important key to get hints for when the player is stuck in a puzzle (although the game is quite easy and this key is not mentioned).
Let's enchant the serpents with a flute.
A well, with a underground world below. I don't know what this tubular entities are, but surely they're unpredictable.
I have this doubt: is this a "Flying squirrel" or a member of the "Flying Dragons"?
Going down the well.
Using the "T" key, something necessary to create a bridge: the "ACME expanding bridge" kit.
Too much confidence leads to this.
I am the Trampoline man!
Bellows and spurs, an old chap at the left.
Using a trick to call for a rope.
Without Bellows no hot air.
Reaching the skies.
No, he's not giving the finger, he realized that having an umbrella is the ticket to get out of there. I tried to communicate with that lying guy, without any feedback.
I think I'm too much light weighted... doesn't look good...
2nd try: inserting the proper barrel of powder... let's see what happens.
And there you are, gracious as a fairy.
"Zero" in informatics, has its beauty.
Peeking through the telescope...
...not good news.
The ladder leading to the telescope room.
Now I understand why a mummy of someone which looks very much alike as my character, is lying next to the teleporter device .
Zero gravity room. I notice that these mummies looking alike as my character are spread all over the scenarios of the game.
Forging a cross with a silver lining.
Chemical laboratories always have a cup of tea.
I'm positive these guys are the Dalton brothers.
Using the hint key. A silver cross!
Get over here you Fangs!
Very dangerous bridge: in opposition to a cautious stepping, this bridge has to be crossed by jumping.
Another trampoline.
Got the energy crystal from the "zero gravity" room, and puzzow! Scott me up Beam!. I wonder if the mummies are also indicators of danger... hum...
- Now you don't forget to take your anti radiation pins before picking the atomic pile!
Switch properly inserted.
A marvellous bucket trip with a dazzling view.
Depending on the nationality of the character there's a idiosyncratic task related to the picking of the secret formula. For the German guy, the traditional social act of drinking beer.
The character has overcome in drinking beer matters the sailor who was guarding the formula. Not a single second to waste! Directly to the professor's lab.
"What are you doing here?" said the professor. "We have to save the word from the menacing meteor!" said the character with an imperceptible English camouflaged by the German pronunciation.
- Do you like my Elton John glasses?
- Please professor, I'm aware of your frustration with Mankind but we don't have much more time...
- Give me a coat hanger, now!!
And so, our Mankind was saved from the giant asteroid by this ingenious apparatus only possible to be created because of the will of these two forgotten heroes.
