Solar Fox is an arcade game released in 1981 and ported for the Atari 2600, ColecoVision and Intellivision video game console.
Your job is to pilot a starship through a series of squared solar cell matrixes inside a rack. While capturing the cells you must dodge waves of fireballs that are being thrown by Sentinels. These Sentinels move continuously along the perimeter of each cell formation. When you clear an entire field of squares (by flying through each square), you go on to the next level (rack). The faster you clear a matrix, the more points you receive.
There are 26 different solar cell matrixes shapes, every fifth matrix you reach a Challenge rack. During challenge racks there're no fireballs, but you have to clear the entire field before the time runs out.
You can control this game easily by using the keyboard of your PC (see the table next to the game). However, for maximum gaming enjoyment, we strongly recommend using a USB joystick that you simply plug into the USB port of your computer. If you do not have a joystick, buy a suitable USB controller in Amazon or in some of your favorite online stores.
