User guide

You are the Captain MAOUSS, following a damage with your spaceship, you were obliged to land as quickly as possible on the first planet come.

Your ship is finally crashed on an unknown island, you lost consciousness and you find yourself strangely in the middle of this island, but in your misfortune you still have with you your phaser (a lethal weapon).

This island turns out to be inhospitable and you should trade with the locals to get the famous ESCAPE ticket which will allow you to leave this evil island by submarine.

Will you be able to meet the challenge, facing the hordes of aliens and recalcitrant natives?

A decidedly old school game, hard, without the possibility of saving, it's up to you to discover the 50 sets of the game. A tip think about making a plan of your discoveries, the last word: With knowledge comes freedom, little beetle.
