A raiding party from the Rallom Empire has taken over one of Earth's far-flung space stations.
The only Earth craft in the vicinity is an out-dated Cosmic Cruiser... and you are the pilot.
A priority signal sends you on what could turn out to be a suicidal mission.
You have been ordered to save the space station crew at all costs. As you hurtle towards your destiny, a daring plan forms in your mind. The only chance you have is to use your exterior laser cannon to blast open the station portals, then by making use of your body propulsion unit you will have to pluck the crewmen from the station and transport them back to your Cruiser. Your plan requires split-second timing and nerves of steel.
As you transport your ward to the Cruiser, you must make snap decisions; if you use your hand laser, the blast will blow the crewmen into space. Can you get back to your laser cannon in time to blast the Rallom fighters or will you have to secure the rescued crewman to a nearby satellite to allow you to move more quickly?
You see the space station in the distance, the adrenaline pumps through your body... Will you succeed?
By using your external mounted laser cannon, you must blast away the portals of the revolving space station to gain access to your imprisoned buddies, but beware, not all the portals contain imprisoned crewmen. Some of manner by Rallom warriors...!
Sometime after your rescue mission commences, added dangers in the form of Rallom Fighters arrive to bomb you with alarming accuracy; this hostile action makes your task infinitely more dangerous and difficult.
When you blast a portal containing an imprisoned crewman, you must wait until the portal revolves around to the front of the screen again, and then the crewman will emerge. You must then pick him up and transport him back to the relative safety of your Cosmic Cruiser.
As you pass over the cannon you will lock-on to the gun automatically, using your 'left' and 'right' controls you can guide the direction of your cannon.
To rescue the crewmen you must blast away the portals on the revolving outer rim of the space station.
Once you have opened some portals you should move away from your cannon by using the 'up' control. You may now collect a crewman as he drifts into space.
Now that you have a crewman you must transport him to the open hatch on the top left hand side of your battle cruiser. A carried crewman becomes attached to the satellite when you pass over it.
The alien warriors who were guarding the crewmen begin to come after you. They move quickly towards any crewmen in an attempt to return them to imprisonment.
You must destroy the alien warriors by using either your hand gun or the laser cannon. If you fire your hand gun while carrying a crewmen, he will float away from you and become very vulnerable to marauding aliens.
Can move in any direction on the screen under keyboard control. He carries with him a laser pistol at all times.
The crewmen are picked up in space. As you pass over him he will automatically attach himself to you. If he drifts away because you have bumped into a satellite or have fired your hand gun, he can be retrieved by going after him and bumping into him.
