Exodus (Firebird Silver £2.50)

Information

Exodus is an arcade shoot ’em up where the player controls a patrolling starship. Their mission is to prevent a variety of enemies escaping from The Pit, by moving in a clockwise or anti-clockwise direction around the perimeter, shooting almost everything that’s trying to escape. However, the player isn’t allowed to continuously shoot, as the laser gun on their ship overheats and cuts out.

Certain creatures aren't to be shot at, and other items give the player bonuses. In what might have been a tip of the hat to Jeff Minter, if a Mutant Llama escapes then a life is lost. All of this is played against the clock, with time bonuses allowing the player to extend the time period on each level up to a maximum of 99 seconds.
