||Rescue Terra I
||Terra I is Earth's main supplier of Zenbar
crystals. These crystals supply 72% of Earths energy.
Terra I is managed by a highly sophisticated computer
system which controls all planetary electromechanical
equipment, including the robot driven defense system.
. . . Apparently, Terra Is computer system has been
sabotaged. All crystal shipments are being turned over
to space pirates who operate in Terra Is quadrant of the
universe. Terra Is own defense systems are being used
to aid these pirates in their activities.
. . . Your orders are to proceed to Terra I. Destroy all
pirates and electromechanical systems which pose a
threat to your ship.
You will be assigned the fleets newest and most
sophisticated fighter, the F-711 Starwarrior. This ship
is equipped with laser cannons and a computerized
navigational system which constantly calculates the
distance in light years to your ultimate objective.

The following chart indicates hazards and defense systems
which you will have to overcome on your journey to Terra I.
Distance in Light Years
METEOR STORM -- radar reports indicate that you will
encounter a meteor storm 39,999 light years from Terra I. The
meteors exhibit sporadic movement caused by
electromagnetic disturbances. Destroy all meteors!
SPACE PIRATES -- Intelligence indicates heavy space
pirate activity 29,999 light years from Terra I. The space
pirates man slow cargo ships which travel on a straight
course. These are fairly easy targets, but they are armed with
laser cannons. The pirates protect their cargo ships with fast
moving fighter saucers which accelerate in random
directions. These fighter saucers are extremely dangerous.
Evasive flight is recommended when necessary.
ROBOT INTERCEPTORS -- You will encounter robot
interceptors 19,999 light years from Terra I. This is Terra Is
primary planetrary defense. The two types of interceptors are
missile shaped and saucer shaped. Both types exhibit erratic
movement and are extremely difficult to hit due to their low
profile. Saucer shaped interceptors are armed with photon
bombs which make them more dangerous than the missile
FISH FORCE FIELDS -- You will encounter fish force fields
9,999 light years from Terra I. These are Terra Is last line of
defense. Fish shaped devices will emit glowing force fields
that will continually advance on your position. The only way
to knock out the force field is to fly close to the field and
attack the fish shaped device with your laser.
SCORING & DISTANCE
The F-711 has 5 shield at the start of each mission. One is in
use and four are in reserve. One shield will be lost when you
are hit and one shield will be gained for each 10,000 points
Meteor 125 points
Cargo Ship 225 points
Fighter Saucer 275 points
Robot Interceptor 425 points
Fish Force Field 650 points
A two tone sound signals the beginning of each wave. If an
obstacle gets by it will appear on the screen again. In order
to advance to the next wave and get closer to Terra I, you
must destroy all obstacles without being hit. If you are hit,
not only do you lose a shield, but you must start the wave
over. Your navigational system will recalculate your distance
to Terra I.
2. Joystick Controller
Use your joystick to maneuver the F-711. Insert the game
cartridge into your console and turn ON the power.
Check to be sure VentureVision is displayed correctly. If
it is not turn the power OFF, wait ten seconds, and then
turn it ON again.
3. Game Select Lever
Flip game select lever to choose mission number.
4. Game Reset Lever
Hit game reset lever to begin game.
5. Fire Button
The red fire button will also reset game when previous
6. Difficulty Levers
The difficulty levers do not affect game play.
7. TV TYPE Switch
Rescue Terra I is designed to operate on either black and
white or color TV without the use of the TV Type Switch.
The TV Type Switch has been converted to a pause
switch. If you are interrupted during game play, you may
flip the TV Type Switch, and the game will hold after the
current wave is completed. The pause mode is not
designed to be used for long periods of time. When you
are ready to continue, flip the TV Type Switch to the

1 Player 2 Players Description
Mission #1 #6 Entire Mission
#2 #7 Meteor Storm Only
#3 #8 Space Pirates Only
#4 #9 Robot Interceptors Only
#5 #10 Fish Force Fields Only
The F-711 Starwarrior navigational system is only
operational during Mission #1 and #6.
All two player missions are team efforts. The left controller
will move the F-711 left and right only. The right controller
will move the craft up and down only. Fire power is
controlled alternatively by both controllers. The right
controller fires for 2 seconds, then the left controller for 2
PROBABILITY OF MISSION SUCCESS
Your chances of success are slim but not impossible.
Strategic flight Wing Command estimates that only one
pilot in a thousand can reach Terra I. But ...you are the best;
thats why you were chosen. Good luck!
