[FREE] xorf - remake of the BBC Micro classic "Thrust"

A re-think of the classic BBC Micro space game, "Thrust". Explore the caves of 20 barren planets, in search of an essential power-orb. Navigate barriers and make use of fuel stores to replenish your ship's energy supply. Avoid or destroy the planets' automated defenses while guiding the orb back to the surface. Once back at the surface, destroy the planet's nuclear reactor before hyper-spacing to safety with the orb in tow.'

With twenty levels, six different gravity modes, 3D graphics, realistic physics, multi-touch support, cool particle effects and noises, hours of immersive, challenging fun are at your fingertips! A whole new Thrust galaxy awaits...

Just picked it up, really nice, controls work well, the game engine plays just like the classic original. Really good.

Be great to have a version with true vector graphics though

Thanks for playing, and I'm glad you like it :-). Not sure we're planning a totally retro looking version, but you never know...
