DescriptionThis game is an early simulation of NASA's space shuttle, on a mission to retrieve a failed satellite. Most of the controls are handled using the joystick. The mission is comprised of five different stages:
- Launch: After an automatic lift-off out of Earth's gravity, you guide the shuttle to a rendezvous point.
- Park: With the satellite in sight, approach it until you are right next to it.
- Arm: Use the robot arm to catch the floating satellite and bring it into the cargo space of the shuttle.
- Entry: Just like the launch stage, but without throttle control, you guide the shuttle to a target box indicated in the plotter instrument.
- Final approach: From an outside view of the shuttle, try to decelerate at the same time as dropping to an altitude of zero.
