Vidtec's Space Jockey (VC1001) US Games Corporation A Subsidiary of The Quaker Oats Co. 1515 Wyatt Drive Santa Clara, California 95054 Typed in by Corey Stup (email@example.com) on 11/9/93. Space Jockey is a single player, full color, action game designed to be played on the ATARI(r) Video Computer System(tm) or the Sears Tele-Game(tm). You are a Space Jockey at the controls of a highly maneuverable Attack Saucer, which appears on the left side of the screen. A variety of enemy weapons and obstacles appear on the right and move toward your space ship. These include tanks, jet planes, prop planes and helicopters, which all fire at you. Additionally, there are balloons, houses and trees that do not fire but are obstacles capable of destroying your Attack Saucer upon impact. Your objective is to shoot down as many of the enemy objects as possible, scoring as many points as possible, while at the same time avoiding enemy fire. Initially you have a fleet of three space ships available to you. For each 1,000 points you can score, an additional ship will be available to you. Instructions: 1.

Emulation on mobile devices will drain your battery quite fast. I recommend playing while device is plugged into charger.
