Ground control to Major Tom – it’s time for a futuristic spacecraft simulation game that will really test your piloting skills! Spaceman is a straight-forward spaceship flying game for kids where you have to navigate a futuristic one-man spaceship through a series of challenging platform-type levels. You play the role of a daring astronaut, and have to get your ship to an exit portal while trying to avoid crashing off the sides of the challenging landscape. You have to be extremely careful – one wrong move, and your spacecraft is toast!
This fun and frantic space adventure will really test your quick reaction skills and how steady your hand is as you have to quickly maneuver around the often dangerous terrain while your futuristic ship is quite difficult to control. You have to get to grips with the throttle and boosters in double-quick time. If you don’t, it could be a case of “Houston, we have a problem!” However, if you’ve got the slick piloting skills needed for this task – there should be no problem at all! Good luck out there – and may the force be with you!
How to Play: The goal in each increasingly difficult level is to get your one-man spaceship to the circular Exit Portal, normally located on the right hand side of the game screen. You have to dodge and weave your way through the often maze-like landscape, avoiding dangerous rocks and meteors. Use the Arrow Keys on your computer keyboard to control your spacecraft. Once the game begins, gravity imediately affects your spaceship, pulling it down (unless you activate your boosters using your Arrow Keys.)
You start with three lives, and must avoid crashing off any obstacle or the side of the game screen. If you make a flight navigation error and lose control of your ship to gravity, and your spaceship crashes – you lose a life. If you lose all 3 lives, you have to travel all the way back to the very first level – so be extra careful! You can see how many lives you have remaining in the top left corner of the game screen. Collect Star Diamonds as you progress to increase your points score, and earn bonus points for completing the level in as fast a time as you can.
