Stellar Track (Atari 2600 - a2600)
This Atari 2600 version of Star Trek game on a college mainframe many.
As these computer programs, it has no graphics, only text. You use the joystick, moving left or right to select the command you want, and then press the red button. Then move the joystick left or right to select the parameters for this command, if any. You start by clicking on the Reset button, or choose to select how many enemies you have to kill as stardates.
Commands and parameters are as follows:
Galaxy Map = 6x6 grid that starts empty, until you perform long range scanning. After this quadrant will show the 2-digit number. The left figure is the number of foreigners in the area. The right digit is either 1 or zero, depending on whether there is or is not a star base in this area. Galaxy card does not require energy or stardates.
LR = long scan scanning range. This will tell you what's in your quadrant and the bull's-eye near you. If you have any enemies in the box when you make HR scan, they will attack you. Scanning LR does not require energy or stardates but it does turn.
Cp = short scan scanning range. It shows you the stars, aliens and POSs in your quadrant. You owe it to destroy the aliens and dock with Starbases. How to scan the Republic of Lithuania, if there are aliens in their sector, they will attack after using the scan Wed. Also, as scanning LR, SR sweep does not require energy or stardates but it does rotate.
= Warp warp is how you move, either from quadrant to quadrant or from sector to sector. You go to the setting 2 setting. The first is your direction. You choose the direction, based on the figures.
Then you choose how many quadrants and sectors to move. If you want to move to the quadrant, set the left lane to zero, so that you are not jarred out of this quadrant. Warp uses stardates, energy and rotation. If you have jars in the quadrant, there is only you and the stars on the screen is green. If you have jars in the quadrant with aliens or aliens and space bases, the screen will be red. If you have jars in the quadrant with the starbase, the screen will be dimmed. It is impossible to deform through the stars. If you try, you save time and energy, but do not go anywhere.
Photon torpedoes = if you press the enemy with one of them, just one shot kills them. You choose the direction with the same numbers as the warp. must have line of sight between you and the enemy; no stars. You carry up to nine torpedoes and they can be replenished. Photon torpedoes do not require energy or time, just turn.
Phasers - unlike the photon torpedo, you need not be directly in the line of the enemy, or to tell the game where the fire. You just sit there, how strong you want the explosion to be over three digits, and the computer fires. The closer you are to the enemy, the more you press. Phasers use of energy from you as you are fired. You can also use turn.
Status - a status report. This will tell you how much stardates, aliens, power plants and photon torpedoes on the left and if you have a loss and that. If you have damage, you'll see a negative number next to the damaged item. This is how much stardates need to repair the product on your own. You can not leave the sector if your engines are not damaged. Instead, you should try to distort the number of quadrants that will take so much time. You will not go away, but you will be repaired.
If mounted on a starbase, you instantly repaired all the damage, refueled and replenished torpedoes. Starbases are placed randomly in the galaxy and never move or be destroyed. There are always two in the galaxy. In the dock, the warp on the sector and the sector where the base is located, so that you are on top of it.
