Starplod

This is an icon controlled graphic adventure based in space.

Following the effects of global warming and pollution in 2088, ten thousand colonists were put into suspended animation by the Galactic Federation (Gal-Fed) on board a vast space ship (Space Base). You wake up two million years later to find yourself in a solar system which has long-since been abandoned to pirates by the Gal-Fed explorers.

Unfortunately, during your long sleep, the life-support systems generator was damaged and the backup supply of Moronium fuel was lost - leaving just a few days fuel left.

You are sent out from the Space Base in its small exploratory craft in search of the previous mineral. You will need to Hyperdrive around the planets and then land on them to fulfill your task.

The screen is split into four sections - an image of the current location, description of the exits at the top, with a description of the location underneath, and then 20 command icons below this.
