Pandora is a graphic adventure set on board a huge generation spaceship called Pandora. It carries a crew of people and androids, and has been designed to support life indefinitely whilst searching through unchartered space for alien life forms with an intelligence greater than man’s.
The player takes the role of an Intergalactic Salvage Operator. Their mission is to board and investigate Pandora. Apart from discovering what's been going on, they should also find as many alien artefacts as they can so they can be returned to Earth for analysis.
The main screen is split into two sections - the Play Area and character status Display Panel. The player can move their character around the spaceship using a joystick and the spacebar, which is used to access the inventory. Objects can be picked up, swapped and dropped.
