Earth is exploding and generating a huge shockwave destroying everything in its path, Mars is guarded with homing missiles and alien technology.
Skilfully pilot your rocket, avoiding asteroids and space debris but make sure you keep an eye on your fuel and shields.
Top-up on fuel as you escape on the floating fuel platforms. An accurate rocket landing essential as a more accurate landing gets you more fuel. Land on a Space Station and you get extra fuel as well.
On launch you'll fly through a Shield Station to charge your shields. Shield Stations are dotted around the atmosphere so don't forget to fly through them when shields are low. This will allow you to survive the occasional asteroid hit.
Different rockets have different qualities so experiment and try and beat your best altitude so far.
