Description from the packaging.

Professor Renegade to the Rescue.

Forty years ago. Prof. K.K. Renegade predicted that an asteroid was rocketing toward Earth. No one believed him... then. But time, and a rapidly approaching piece of space rock the size of Louisiana. would change all that.

Realizing that the only man who could avert the asteroid disaster was the same man who predicted it, the really important people of Earth decided to contact Prof. Renegade for help. But the Professor had become a recluse (no one likes his "Earth Is Doomed" theory poo-pooed). The question now: where was Prof. Renegade... and could he be found in time!?!?

You're in charge of the Renegade hunt. Select one of the five most intrepid adventurers from England, France, Germany, Japan, and the U.S. of A. to spearhead the expedition.

Prof. Renegade was last seen in an unexplored region of the highest Tibetan ranges; an area populated by creatures and conditions of the Professor's own bizarre design: venomous stone snakes. reptilian birds, acid storms, and worse, low-fat curd products! Not only must your adventurer survive these, but he must find and properly use such curious objects as spurs, a vacuum cleaner, a cup of tea, and of course, a unicycle.

Once at the Professor's door, the quest is far from over. If you convince Renegade to help, he'll need to construct an anti-asteroid deflector. The search now turns to finding such high-tech tools as an atomic pile, a 9-volt battery, and a bent coat hanger!

If your adventurer fails to live long enough to find the Professor or to help Renegade build the deflector in time. then Earth, and all its neat things, will be obliterated.
