    IT'S NOT JUST AN ADVENTURE - IT'S YOUR JOB.

    As the Terran Mining Guild's top Investigator, every job is an adventure - especially when the job is to stop an out-of-control asteroid from colliding with Earth!

    ASSIGNMENT: ASTEROID

    As the hero of this adventure, your assignment is to investigate an asteroid mining station, find out what happened to the missing crew, and figure out how to fix the malfunctioning engines of the self-propelled asteroid before it crashes into Earth. With your trained investigative mind (and some luck), you may be able to resolve this crisis in time to avoid an untimely death.

    EARTHRISE is played in 3-D graphics and animation, with over 100 locations and multiple solution paths, plus user-definable keys and Help menu.

    There are no simple paths to your solution, all loaded with challenges, plus several surprising ways to meet your demise. Rely on your trained investigative mind, ingenuity, and lots of luck to solve this crisis before EARTHRISE.
