More help please

Ok

I jumped to the Leesti system and using the above help
managed to kill 4 enemy ships attacking me.
One ship fired off two missiles and I managed to shoot
them out before they hit my shit. That was pretty cool? My question is how do I
find a place to dock? Do I keep flying to the blue planet
and encounter a space station there? I just want to save
but it won't allow me to until I dock.

Thanks

Yes you just head towards the planet (lock it on your radar)
When there is no one else around you can boost towards planet by pressing 5th bottom icon from left.
When you cant boost any further you will see mass locked and the station should be near
Using radar again lock onto station.
Hope that helps

Thanks alot

I docked and saved. I really like the game considering it is a remake
of an old classic. The only thing is it takes forever to dock it seems
and to fly to the planet.

I guess I should save up for a mining laser and cargo scoop to get
some faster cash to buy other goodies I am guessing.

Aiming is challenging but, rewarding when you do it.

Thanks

gemineye62, yeah it does take time to arrive at a station. It's been a tricky tradeoff, and we're still thinking about ways of improving this. It's usually faster to go as close to the station as possible before hitting auto-dock.

Great to be able to play this on iOS, amazing the leap from BBC model B to iPod!

If you like old school code you will love this project
