Thrust Deluxe
Game info:
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.
