"A terrible version, this. The graphics are bad, the game is sluggish, and there are bugs in the alien movement." (Read Full Review)
... Computer Gamer
"Great fun to play and extremely addictive, but I don't think it is likely to leap to the top of the charts." (Read Full Review)

Introduction | Docking | Game Controls | Loading


Take a trip to the space war!

You take control of a three-section fighter craft. Shoot and avoid the onslaught of the attacking Kamikaze Aliens, but beware as their tactics and formations will change as your skill increases.

The game is over when all three sections of your ship are destroyed.

Attacking you are three types of aliens:

Cold Eyes Worth 50 pts A Cold Eye will separate into two halves when hit.
Supper Flies Worth 30 pts  
4-Ds Worth 60 pts  
Meteos Worth 200 pts These are very fast and difficult to hit.
Atomic Piles Worth 100 pts These attack unexpectedly.


This occurs after the second wave of Supper Flies and after the Meteos. A bonus is given after a successful docking, the value of which is dependent on the time taken to dock. Of course, you cannot dock if you have only one section of ship left. During docking, pressing fire will give you upwards thrust, thereby slowing your descent.
