A mysterious, nearby planet is rich in these useful items--your mission, in this mildly amusing, quite clever, rather subtle and attractive game, is to teleport down to the planet with a team of blocky, moustachioed LEGO spacemen, a stable of tireless Rock Raider robots and much equipment and other supplies, and come back with the vital crystalline fuel.
Will your team get nabbed by the (rather unfrightening) monsters? Will they get lost in the labyrinthine-but-absorbing cave-systems? Will they finish the electric fence in time to fend off the dreaded Slimy Slug? Will you get bored by the endless permutations of laser cutters, chrome crushers, lava flows and drill upgrades long before you find your way home to the mother-ship? Not if you're a calm, patient, comparatively adept computer game-player aged about eight or upwards, with plenty of time to crack this perplexing inter-planetary puzzle. -- Sean Thomas
