History of Obliterator
Obliterator is a video adventure published by Melbourne House in 1989 for the ZX Spectrum.
You are Drak, the sole survivor of the Obliterators, an elite fighting force employed in suicide operations of last resort. Several alien species have built a powerful spacecraft with which they plan to destroy Earth and all of humanity. Members of the Federation come to you in a desperate attempt to neutralise this terrible threat.
How to play Obliterator
Drak's objective is to dismantle the systems that keep the ship operational: engines, shields and weapons. In addition, he must retrieve data from the on-board computer for later analysis by Federation members, and a component to activate the escape shuttle. It is enough to find one element of each type to render each system inoperative.
The star cruiser is plagued by alien species and unfriendly defence systems. Fortunately, our hero has different weapons and an energy shield that can be recharged at various points around the area. We have a variety of actions to perform, represented by icons on the scoreboard, which we can activate at our convenience, such as moving through elevators, jumping, teleporting, attacking or picking up objects.
