Review 1:
Another excellent ASCII game by Scott Miller of Apogee game, Meteors was
included on Softdisk's "Big Blue Disk" number 30. Here's a summary of
plot and gameplay from the game's instructions: "A terrible catastrophe
occurred only minutes ago... an urgent distress signal from the USS
Sagan, our largest scientific space station, stated that they were being
torn apart by an uncharted meteor storm. Your scout ship is the closest
vessel to the region. Your mission is to fly your ship to quadrant B32
and rescue as many of the survivors as possible. Hurry, their air supply
will not last long. To navigate the Space Eagle through the meteor shower
use your LEFT and RIGHT cursor keys. Rescue the survivors by touching
them with the ship. Each sector will contain additional fuel canisters,
shields, and missiles that can be used to reprovision the ship. If you
need to take a break, just press the letter "P" on the keyboard to pause
the game. If you wish to quit the game just press the letter "Q" on the
keyboard. Your ship comes equipped with 10 antimatter missiles, which can
be used to destroy meteors in the way. To fire a missile just press the
UP arrow key or the letter "M" on the keyboard. Your ship can absorb
meteor hits equal to the number of shields you have, the next hit could
destroy you. Use the hyperspace matter transferal device only as a last
resort, since it consumes a large amount of the ship's fuel." The game is
a lot of fun, and a great proof of how much you can do with just ASCII
characters ;)

Meteors came on a monthly disk based magazine called Big Blue Disk in
1989, issue number 30. Ascii graphics. Fly your scout ship through a
meteor storm and save survivors of the USS Sagan before they run out of
