Advertised in BigK magazine, Spacestation Alpha was sadly another title which was never to see the light. The C64 version was stated as coming soon.
The game was described as follows on the advert:
"A graphical space battle – The deadly cylon fleet has reached its destination. Their objective – destroy planet earth. Each ship in the fleet carries a single devastating lithium torpedo. Earth sheilds are up but their power is beign drained. You, as commander of earth’s last remainign space station are all that stands between the cylons and earth’s total obliteration."
The game we assume is a Space Raiders style game which was quite popular around the time. This could well have been a clone of somekind. The BBC version was released and apparently well recieved.
We don’t know much else about the game apart from these details, so there is a long way to go to get any information on it.
Do you know any more about this game?
