Quite possibly Econet.

This was called the Supervisor and was a kind of equivalent of Windows' command prompt, sometimes called the star prompt because of the asterisk. F12 activated fullscreen mode (by bumping the desktop up), while Ctrl-F12 would have activated it within a task window on the desktop.

Lander was only a demo. The full version was called Zarch, and was later ported to the PC as Virus. It was authored by David Braben, co-author of the famous space trading game Elite. Chocks Away was a classic :-)

Thanks for sharing your memories, and I hope I helped bring out a few more!
