Our hero, Sammy the spaceman, has teleported on to a weird spaceship in order to explore it, only to find himself in severe peril. Unable to teleport back to his own ship he must collect all the power crystals and reach the ship's own teleporters. You must guide Sammy through the various sections of the ship.

Typing in the listings
As Space Mania is such a large game we are printing it in two parts. The second half will be printed next month. In the meantime if you are going to save it on tape you will need at least two tapes - one to store a copy of the loader programs, in case of accidents, and one for the game the loaders create.
Type in Mania Loader first and save it on to the tape you will use for the game. Type in the other listings in order. Save each one on to your other tape. After saving each program put in the game tape and run the program. Correct any errors that show up and save it (not on the game tape). Run it again. If all is well, the program will save a machine code file on to the game tape. Don't forget to do each of the programs in order. When you have created a tape with all the machine code on you can start to play. Rewind to the start of the games tape and press Ctrl and the small Enter key. Disc users need to run the Mania Loader program.
