CHOOSE AN AIRCRAFT
Two types of Aircraft are available:The Rocket and UFO. Both handle differently, and your Rabbit Rescue Mission will depend on your mastery of both.
ROCKET TO THE RESCUE!
The Rocket has been a mainstay of the Rabbiteer Rescue Pilots for years. In fact, the very first Rocket flown by Commander Cabbage was actually a repurposed lunar lander back in the 1970's and allegedly inspired a new genre of arcade games on other worlds. A Rocket must fire in an upward trajectory to get any lift at all, and players must balance their inertia and speed against a ticking clock to rescue the Rabbit Colonists.
UFO, THE BEGINNER FRIENDLY FLIER!
The UFO has been an interstellar favorite of Rookie Pilots for a long time. Veteran Pilots usually prefer the vastly superior carrying capacity of the Rocket, whilst the UFO Aircraft are simpler and have the benefit of Anti-Gravity technology. Thus Pilots need not battle gravity at all and instead focus entirely on navigation and handling. Your first UFO is actually a hand me down Underpowered Fishing Object formerly used by the Commander on fishing trips.
