Icon has come up with quite an addictive 'annihilate the nasties' game, with fair but slightly flickery graphics. Read Review
Yawn... Destroy as many of the invading Cylon fleet as possible... in a game that just goes on and on and on... Read Review
This game is easy and since it's written in Basic, is frustratingly slow and unchallenging. Cannot be recommended. Read Review
As commander of earth's last orbitting space station, your mission is to destroy as many of the invading Cylon fleet as possible before their lethal lithium missiles hit the earth.
As the missiles are guided by on-board computers, hitting the enemy ship with your phaser before the missile hits earth will automatically destroy it.
The Cylons attack in waves of fifty. Each wave getting gradually faster. Your phasers are prone to overheating and, if overused, will cut out for a few seconds (the word 'OUT' will flash in place of 'ACTIVE').
Earth's shield power is shown in the middle gauge marked 'E-SHIELDS'. When this reaches 1,000, the shields will begin to glow red under the stress oof the bombardment.
Your score is calculated under section marked 'TOTAL SCORE' and an updated 'HIGH SCORE' is held whilst the program is running.
Beware: If you fail in your mission to save earth - the planet will be destroyed and explode into hundreds of pieces.
You control your phaser sights with the following keys:
Z - Left, X - Right, : - Up, ? - Down, RETURN/SPACE - Fire
The following utilities are also available to allow you to edit the supplied screens of this game:
