The Buck Rogers space ship is in your hands!

Step into the command seat of the Buck Rogers fighter for a true space adventure! Follow Buck's journey as you set out for the Planet of Zoom. An alien intelligence has taken control of the area. You must get there before the alien force devastates the planet. Buck's problems are now your problems: Fleets of alien spacecraft keep you from getting to the planet quickly and safely!

Brave all dangers in this cartridge conversion of the original pack-in game of the Coleco Adam computer!

After the release of Dragon's Lair and Zaxxon Super Game in cartridge format, I received several requests for a cartridge conversion of the ADAM version of Buck Rogers. I ignored these requests at first, because I've always felt that Buck Rogers Super Game was a rather choppy and clunky game. But then I thought about Track & Field: The game never appealed much to me personally, but that didn't stop the game from being an excellent seller among my homebrew releases. So I reconsidered and asked Mystery Man if he would be interested in converting the game to cartridge format, like he did for Dragon's Lair and Zaxxon Super Game. After some lenghty discussions, he agreed to do it, and he did the job in record time despite the difficulty inherent to such a conversion, just like the previous conversion projects. :-)

While he was converting the game to MegaCart cartridge format, I asked Mystery Man to alter the controls to match the ones from the Buck Rogers arcade game: With the cartridge edition, players are now able to fire lasers with both fire buttons, and alter the speed of the game via the keypad. But for the purists who want to revisit the game as originally designed on the ADAM, the option to play using the original control scheme is still available.

Team Pixelboy is proud to take part in the effort to provide more games for the owners of Opcode's Super Game Module!

This game was completed and released in 2013.
