"It takes me - WAY - back to my Star Flight (remember those two?) days. "
ah starflight seemed great. My dad bought it for me on a trip to the states (back in the 80s). The box is knocking around here somewhere, with the designers sitting in a space shuttle or something. It was a bit above me at the time, kind of preferred then type-tastic space-quest, but i do remember landing on a massive planet...and dying instantly from the 16g rated gravity.
