You are Splorf, Space Corp Sanitation Engineer 5th Class, Lavatorial Division. A small yet vital cog in the corporate machine. You are good at your job.

The rumors have reached even the lowest levels of Methane Station; the harvest ships have brought disastrous news concerning the defensive system protecting Space Corp's interests from space pirates and fierce competitors!

"You there", a middle manager shouts at you, "Commander Splix needs a volunteer! Get your lazy plarp up to level 17 immediately!"

The rumours were true! Exploding gasteroids have damaged the disintegration fence above planet doom, and Commander Splix wants you to fix it! Repairman Splorf to the rescue...

Working quickly to fix the damaged shield generator before evil space pirates steal the precious gas resources from the planet below, you suddenly see your company issued spanner drifting off towards the planet.

Using your jetpack you desperately follow the spanner into a particularly pungent gasteroid field - just as the now fully operational disintegration fence above you turns itself back on...


Comes with cartridge and full-color manual.
LE Boxed Edition also comes with a full color box (of course), and Splorf art cards.

Become a member of the "Golden Spanner", 4th Class Engineer group.

Once you have gained competence in maneuvering your jetpack above Planet Doom, you can rocket your career with the "Golden Spanner" award. Achieve a score of 4,000 points (or more) and you can be eligible to join this 4th Class Engineer group - Lavatorial Division.

Just send us a picture of the TV displaying the Spaceman Splorf title screen with the high score. Note that the game must be played on a REAL Atari or Sears system, and the picture should include the high score along with the game system being visible.
