How do You play Zarathrusta?

How do you play this game... http://hol.abime.net/1621 ???

I dont have the manual and the joypad works one minute, not the next - I know that the space bar seems to release some sort of laser... but it seems to disable the controller...

Can anyone with the manual give me a quick rough guide as it looks a great gravity type game...

Thanks...

Actually my versions are a bit dodgy I think - the one I got from Amiga Magix is a bit unpredictable as the main ship can just keep spinning round in a circle (playing this on my A1200) and the adf version I got from planet emu crashes my A500 after a couple of screens... hhhmm... I was just getting the hang of it as well... it does actually look like a really good game... what versions do you guys have?

How you play it? You die. A lot.

That's true, Zarathrusta is the same crap like the unplayable Fly Harder. I prefer Thrust on the C-64, but it's a great game for all platforms.

just to clarify about this imo nice game, and its BUGGED controls options

as default, it use keyboard controls A=rotate left, S=rotate right, Shift, Enter and Spacebar keys
now, if you want to play with joystick, you must start the game at least two times, because the first play forced start with keyboard controls

also, pressing F10 on main menu you can change keys assignment for keyboard and joystick, but the second does'nt work at all, so only default controls for joystick it seems

tested with WinUAE + original .ipf

little shame, because using joystick the game is surely easier to be played

sorry for the very old necropost
