    Put your mouse cursor 'in' the game area (mouse cursor may disappear) and left click once. Then the specified controls should work.

    P - Start game
    Ctrl - Fire
    Up arrow key - Thrust forward
    Left, Right arrow keys - Turn
    Spacebar - Shield

    click in the game window once before trying the buttons. The app needs to know that it should interpret your keystrokes.

    Clicked on the button to try the game, but when the new window opened up, none of the buttons that were specified did anything!

    Loved this game many years ago; would love to try it again.
