    FYI everyone, please note there was a ROMset rename...

    0.106-0.137: polaris - "Polaris (set 1)"
    0.137u4-0.200: polarisa - "Polaris (First revision)"

    ... now how on earth do I play this thing?

    I am not surprised, a great many of the 1980 games and pre were gone by the time many gamers hit the arcades with Pac-man, Galaxian and co.

    Interesting ol' relic from the past that I've never played. Nice tough game to finish on too; quite claustrophic when the action gets tight. Love the atmospheric sounds.

    The closest thing I've played that I can think of is probably Wavy Navy on C64 which was quite a unique little shooter. https://www.c64-wiki.com/wiki/Wavy_Navy
