Thrust Deluxe is a remake of the classic C64 game Thrust. Thrust itself was based
upon the Atari arcade game Gravitar.
In Thrust you must guide your spaceship through increasingly difficult caves to collect the
valuable Klystron Pods. After locating the pod, you must attach it to your ship and make your way
up again, all the time battling the planet's gravity and the Empire's defensive systems, while keeping
track of your fuel supply. Once you have beaten all six levels, the game restarts but adds the extra
challenge of reverse gravity and invisible levels.
To say that Thrust is a hard game may be true, especially looking at todays games difficulty
levels. But, once mastered it is great game to play.
Thrust Deluxe is the original Thrust in all its glory, but with more levels and more features.
Here are some:
Six extra levels
Pilots to rescue
Level password system
Selectable screen resolution
Customisable control keys
Multiple level demo mode
Rob Hubbard title tune remix
