Description of Gravity Well

Object: land the craft on each of the bases, with the VSI (Vertical Speed Indicator, located on the right edge) within the green. Gain more points for a soft landing. A very soft landing earns a “diamond,” which earns bonus points and may be converted to fuel later on (using the [Enter] key). You must be EXACTLY vertical before you touch down. Use the DOWN ARROW to achieve this. The Auto-Land feature allows your ship to be tipped SLIGHTLY to one side. Just before landing your ship will right itself if you are going downwards slowly enough. This DOES NOT result in the BEST possible score however. To keep from getting lazy you can turn this feature on and off. Advance to next planetoid when you land on all bases. Use the Altimeter and GSI (Gross Speed Indicator, located in the upper right) and guide yourself to a base. Use the Ctrl key to maintain the “wide” zoom angle for rapid positioning along the cliff faces. Use the DRB (Directional Radio Beacon) in the upper left to locate remaining bases to land on. You have a limited number of landers and when you are out of fuel, it’s game over, unless you have some diamonds that you can convert BEFORE YOU CRASH!! PLBM official website:
