Although not particularly packing related and initially somewhat confusing, Contraband Packing Time at it's core is an incredibly complex game and enjoyable to those who enjoy a unique mix of fighting, flying, and trading.
On a very graphically appealling menu, you can choose your character, player type, and name. When these choices have all been made you click the "Let it start" button and you get your mission. Ultimately, you need to figure out someway to get out of a black hole and back to earth.
When you first start flying around, it can be very confusing until you realize that you are in a square section of scrolling space. So just like asteroids, when you scroll off one side, you'll always appear on the exact opposite. To help keep your bearings, remember that there are four teleporters, one in each corner.
While hovering over one, simply press "A" to enter it. There, you'll enter another section of scrolling space sometimes with enemies to fight, sometimes with a space station, and sometimes with a giant sun that will burn you up if you're not careful. Using "Z" "X" and "C" you can fire your weapons at the bad guys and when you run out of ammo, can reload at one of the two space stations.
When you're in a space station, you can buy ammo, buy merchandise to hopefully sell for a higher price at the other space station, talk to people, or go to the "Hangar" to exit the space station.
HINT : To get started on your return trip to earth, talk to the person in the second space station. He'll tell you what you need to do.
