In Attack On Altair, the galaxy is in trouble and it's up to you to save it! The game is an action side scrolling shooter which uses ASCII characters to create 16 color "graphics".
Probably the rarest game from Windmill Software, maker of Digger, Attack on Altair is a shooter game that is entirely text-based -and not a very good one, at that. If you have played Space Invaders and its clones, you know what to expect here. It's a bit similar to IBM Attack, another very old shooter-except here the objective is the much more mundane kill-aliens-to-save-the-galaxy affair. Action takes place on the surface of planet Altair, but without any real graphics it's just too difficult making out the targets ;) Worth a try just to see what Windmill's early days are like-before you put it down and play the timeless Digger instead.
