"All the excitement of the real arcade version! How many types of alien vessels will you be able to destroy? Seven different types are after you. You must first destroy them and the attempt to rescue the survivors before they float into the sun. But don't fly too close to the sun... its high temperature can destroy you."
Solar Quest is a conversion of the arcade game, Solar Quest, released by Cinematronics in 1981.
The game is a mix between Asteroids and Spacewar. You control a spaceship and you must destroy the alien ships before they collide with you. Once an alien vessel is destroyed, its survivor will remain and float towards the sun in the centre of the screen. You can earn extra points by either destroying the survivors or picking them up in your craft before the sun destroys them. As the game progresses, new type of aliens, who are even faster and more deadly, will enter the field.
