===============================================================================


Made in 1980 for the Apple II, Mission: Asteroid was the third Hi-Res adventure
made by On-Line Systems (later known as Sierra Entertainment). You play an
unnamed character who has to travel into space to destroy an asteroid. Despite
being the third Hi-res game, it is sometimes listed as Hi-Res Adventure #0 to
separate it from the other more difficult Hi-Res adventures. Designed for
beginner and younger players, this is a very short game with easy puzzles.
