This Space-Invader type game starts off with two rows of vultures along the top of the screen.

While you are moving back and forth along the bottom of the screen shooting them down, individual vultures suddenly start swooping down on you, dropping eggs.

If the eggs land on you, you lose one of your three lives. On the other hand, if you don't manage to shoot down a swooping vulture or avoid it, it will pick you up and carry you to eternity, with a corresponding loss of one life.


During the game, the top of the screen displays your current score and highest score to date. At the end of the game, a list of players' names with their highest score is displayed in a Hall of Fame record.

The screen graphics were quite good, without being exceptional. More importantly, the colours chosen were sensible so that the action was clear and the displays easily readable.

The joystick action was fast and smooth.

The cassette was nicely packaged but there were no instructions, the rules becoming apparent as you played the game. The game was quite enjoyable but not particularly compulsive.
