Coleco’s challenging SPACE PANIC pits your Spaceman against cunning Space Monsters who are out to get him. Make your Spaceman dig holes in girder floors to trap the monsters. Then quickly fill them over and make the monsters fall through to their doom. But be careful! Some monsters must fall more than one floor to meet their fate. Race your Spaceman along girders and up and down ladders to avoid them. Can you eliminate all the Space Monsters before your oxygen runs out?

Port of Universal’s arcade game released in November 1980.

Chris Crawford calls Space Panic the first ever platform game as it pre-dates Nintendo's Donkey Kong which is often cited as the original platform game. Space Panic lacks Donkey Kong's jump mechanic.

Space Panic is one of the early games available for the ColecoVision.
