Game Introduction

This game is just like Moon Cresta except there is also a "refueling" stage.

Game Play

Unlike Moon Cresta, rocket number one in Moon Quasar can fire multiple shots at once, but only when it is flying solo. Once it is docked with another ship rocket one can only fire one shot at a time. In Quasar you can also run out of fuel if you take too long to get through a stage, unlike Cresta where there are no limitations on fuel.
