A terrible catastrophe occurred only minutes ago... an urgent distress signal
from the USS Sagan, our largest scientific space station, stated that they
were being torn apart by an uncharted meteor storm. Your scout ship is the
closest vessel to the region. Your mission is to fly your ship to quadrant B32
and rescue as many of the survivors as possible. Hurry, their air supply will
not last long.
To navigate the Space Eagle through the meteor shower use your LEFT and RIGHT
cursor keys. Rescue the survivors by touching them with the ship. Each sector
will contain additional fuel canisters, shields, and missiles that can be used
to reprovision the ship. If you need to take a break, just press the letter "P"
on the keyboard to pause the game. If you wish to quit the game just press the
letter "Q" on the keyboard.
Your ship comes equipped with 10 antimatter missiles, which can be used to
destroy meteors in the way. To fire a missile just press the UP arrow key or
the letter "M" on the keyboard. Your ship can absorb meteor hits equal to the
number of shields you have, the next hit could destroy you. Use the hyperspace
matter transferal device only as a last resort, since it consumes a large amount
of the ship's fuel.

Apogee also mend to the mind of players with vast base of shareware versions. Almost everyone can remember some shareware game from Apogee which were freely distributed among players. This approach made the company very known and popular and turned to be a good decision.
