I hope everyone had a great Christmas and is looking forward to 2016. I'd also like to say a huge thank you to Dan Thoresen, Godfrey'john Sheridan, Matthias Loges, Ryan Simister and D King who helped us out into next year and possibly beyond! But enough about that it's a new game time, and this one comes directly from Sijmen Schouten (Mr-Atari) with his new game ' Lost in Space ' that's now available for all Atari 8-bit computers!
In this up to four player game, you must both land on the planet service and then throttle your space pod back up towards the space ship which is orbiting the planet to gain an extra point. But you must be very careful, if you don't throttle enough while landing, you'll crash into the ground at high speed. Or if you throttle too much going back to the spaceship, you'll wizz right past and into outer space aka ( Lost In Space ). You also have to keep an eye on your fuel supply and your over heating engines!
And that's all there is too it, it may not be the most indepth or biggest game we've wrote about on Indie Retro News, but it feels right at home on the Atari 400/800 and even more so if you have up to four friends, with paddle sticks in hand!
