Astronaut Nell has crash landed her ship on an asteroid many miles from Earth. Your objective is to traverse the landscape, avoid the various creatures and collect all the star-shaped minerals to repair the craft. You have 9999 units of oxygen left to complete the quest, but watch out because colliding with spikes or creatures will require Nell to rest, taking a thousand units off that total each time. The on-board radar reports there are eighty eight items to collect, but we wouldn't trust it; we're sure there was one more item out there...
TOP TEN VIC 20 VIDEO GAMES
"Software Project’s Perils Of Willy somehow managed to squeeze in 33 screens of action using the 16K memory expansion. Astro Nell, on the other hand, provides the VIC-20 with a Jet Set Willy multi-screen experience stuffed into… well, no expanded memory whatsoever. If you can see beyond the astonishment and wonderment of how this is all possible, you also discover that it is just as tricky, nasty and polished as the game it imitates. This is old-school gaming requiring accurate jumps, paper on which to map out the rooms, and a plan to collect all of the items. So much for concessions based on age."
