Space Panic pits you as an astronaut against an entire space station full of creepy, crawly monsters. You can scurry up and down ladders and run back and forth across girdered floors to avoid the creatures, but there you have a limited oxygen supply and your job is to dig holes to trap the monsters. Once a monster is trapped, you must then cover up the hole before the monster can crawl out, effectively sending the creature plunging to its doom. Each screen is set up as a series of multi-leveled platforms with interconnecting ladders.
There are three types of creepy crawlies: Creatures, which must fall through one floor to be eliminated; Bosses, which must fall through two floors; and Dons, which must fall through three floors. Another way to kill a monster is to drop another one on top of it. If you are quick enough, you can dig several holes and trap several creatures at once. If the holes are vertically aligned, you can go up to the top hole, fill it in, and destroy several monsters in a chain reaction. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
