Original Instructions

Note: Many of these instructions have been OCRed and may not have been proofread, as a result spelling errors, broken English and grammar are likely.

Scattered around the Asteroid. Dan will find some useful objects, such as a re-charger to keep the laser gun at full power, and energy booster pills to build his strength. These are picked up by jumping on them. As Dan finds them, he can decide either to take them or leave them until later if he is not in need of them at the time.

The five pieces of self-destruct mechanism must be assembled one at a time, in the control room. You will recognise this as it will show five empty sockets at the start. As Dan returns each piece to this location, he can insert it into the correct socket, and it will start to glow. Doing this also opens a door leading to the next place of the mechanism.

Eventually, Dan will have collected the five pieces, and must make his way back to the surface where Digby will be waiting. Note that this may not be the same place as where he first landed.

Good luck...the Earth is depending on you...


This game is dedicated to the memory of Frank Hampson, the creator of Dan Dare who sadly died on 8th July 1985. We hope he would have approved of our treatment of his characters.
