You are a galactic courier commissioned by the people of Zennon to run the
blockade of aliens besieged their planet, carrying documents vital to the
planet's defence. Taking a Dune Rider you set off across the desert wastes of the
barren world pursued by the desperate aliens. Move backwards and forwards
over the landscape to destroy the enemy fighters and jump over radioactive
rocks and lava pits which block your way. At a later stage in the game you will
have to blast the top off large outcroppings before you can jump over them.
Replenish your fast diminishing fuel supply by hitting a tanker and catching the
cannister as it falls to the ground.
