Gravattack?

Hi,

Just came across this great forum while looking frantically for my old favorite game for my Amiga 500. The disk is broken since some years so It would be great if I could find the game online and use it in WinUAE.

I'm looking for a lunar lander type game, and by browsing your forum I think it might be Gravattack. I remember you controlled a grey triangle and manouvered around cave like maps of different color. You had to master landing at platforms where you would pick up points to advance.

Problem is, I found the game as a .lha file on aminet. But all guides on how to use .lha files are very technical. If its like a zip file, why does it not simply unzip to a nice adf or something?

I really want to try the game, or at least know that its the one I'm looking for. Maybe someone has a screenshot? anything will do...


thanks!

Wow you guys are really good. I looked ALL OVER for screens. Unfortunately that is not the game, but damn close. The ship looked exactly the same, but the maps where more cave like, and generally a very simple pattern. Could have been an earlier version. Anyway I will check this game out as it seems to be as close as it gets. Thanks!

Ok, this is scary. Do you guys know me or something? Where you over at my house when I was a kid? thats exactly the game I've been looking for.

I cant believe you found it for me. I used to play it for hours and hours. I'm looking forward to playing now, 10 years later... Thanks Retro-Nerd!
