>Starquake is an arcade adventure, platform and maze game written by Stephen Crow and published by Bubble Bus Software in 1985. It was released for Commodore 64, MSX, ZX Spectrum, Amstrad CPC, Atari XL, Tatung Einstein (all 1985), the BBC Micro (1987)and IBM Compatible and Atari ST (both 1988). An Amiga version was planned for 1991 but was never released.
The player controls B.L.O.B. (Bio-Logically Operated Being), whose mission is to penetrate the unstable core of a rogue planet which has appeared from a black hole. If the core is not repaired within the set time limit it will implode causing a chain reaction which will destroy the entire universe. The planet is inhabited by various primitive creatures, all hazardous to the touch, and the remnants of a previous civilisation which provides the items needed to rebuild and stabilise the planet core.
