Springster is an original arcade strategy game. It is sort of a cross between Q*Bert and Crystal Castles, although more complicated. There are many different objects to pick up, and each specially colored square has a special purpose or power. There is also 32 different levels ('planes'), which are all layed out differently. You control a spring, and you can only move up and down between levels of squares if the space between them is quite small, making movement difficult at times.

This is one of Spectral's earlier Coco 3 only games, and from the time when pretty well anything they did came out through Radio Shack/Tandy, instead of publishing it on their own as they had done in the early Coco 1/2 years.
