Introduction | Game Controls | Loading


You have been chosen as the best of the best. Your mission is to escort a replacement power unit to your outpost on Gamma Hydra 6.

The unit is fitted with its own drive unit, so all you must do is protect it from the many hostile forces you will encounter on your way. The power unit is also equipped with a shield generator to protect it, but this will only withstand 100 hits from anything before the shield collapses and the unit is destroyed along with yourself.

That is your Brief. May luck go with you and remember the company motto... Death before dishonour.
