A very limited version of the Galaxians arcade game with only a couple of descending aliens at a time.

However, on landing they do not return to the pack but mutate into destructive exploding eggs.

There are eight phases of "sheets" of increased difficulty. Colour and sound is usedwell, but graphics tend to be "chunky".

The keys are responsive and easy to use.

A disappointing game - I have other versions which are far superior (although they did cost more!).
