Quantum is a one-player or two-player (not simultaneous) game. The game action takes place in a sub-atomic world. The player tries to capture deadly atomic particles without being destroyed by them. To capture the particles, the player uses a trak-ball to control a sparkling comet. The comet leaves a line-trail behind it. The player must draw a complete circle around each deadly particle to destroy it, but without touching the particle, and before the comet's trail decays (i.e. disappears).
When a player captures a particle, it explodes and the point value appears on the screen. If a player captures more than one particle at a time, double points are earned. The player advances to a new level when all of the NUCLEI have been captured, even if there are other particles are still on the screen. The comet is destroyed when it hits a particle or the red bonds between nuclei. The game ends when all the player's comets are destroyed.
A player who beats the high score will be able to actually 'draw' their name, initials, shapes (i.e. anything) into a box using the trak-ball, which will then be saved, along with their initials.
Produced in VERY limited numbers, Quantum has become a holy grail to many collectors. A complete, working Quantum can easily fetch over $2,000.
