Gameplay


Goal

You have to rescue an astronaut that has been floating in space by taking him to the front of the space ship. Drag or push Dr. Frank Poole to the floating box in front of the ship to "rescue" him. You'll be timed.

Controls

Keyboard :
  • WASD : move the pod
  • Q/E : move down/up
  • Z/V : move the left/right arm
  • X/C : left claws
  • V/B : right claws
  • J : eject from the pod (WASD and Q/E to walk around)

Notes :
  • the pod doesn't strafe, you have to turn it.
  • every time you press the buttons the arms rotate in the opposite direction. It is a little tricky (intentionally).

Known problems

Sometimes the astronaut ragdoll becomes momentarily invisible. Some problem with calculating visible boundaries.
