Controlling the spherical MSB, a repair droid which has lost most of its capabilities, only you can repair the Rasterscan spaceship and bring it back under control. The first job is to get the droid repaired, after which you must regain control of the power generator and the engines.
The game is controlled by moving MSB directly, with a teleport facility on the droid allowing you to move one object at a time. Spanner-type devices are mounted from the floor - guiding MSB into the top of these reveals puzzles which can be used to unlock doors to reach other sections of the ship. Before any power can be generated and the ship's scanner accessed, a leak must be fixed by finding and using a piece of spare piping.
In this novel puzzle game, you must maneuver MSB, a maintenance droid, around the damaged ship Rasterscan to avert the impending crash with a nearby star. MSB must solve numerous logic puzzles to gain access to other areas of the ship. Most logic puzzles involve eight blocks arranged in an octagon, in which you have to swap the colours about until all of them are yellow. It's nowhere near as easy as it sounds, and once you've started the puzzle, you can't exit from it until you've finished. The digitised graphics may be impressive, and the music really increases the sense of loneliness, but most of the puzzles give Rubik's cube a run for its money. Don't be fooled by the game's simplistic controls and small size: it contains enough devious puzzles to stump you for a while.
