Game Objective

Steer your Laser Ship through a hail of cosmic debris, defending yourself with Laser Belts and Radiation Bombs. Each sector is more difficult than the one before and after the initial zero gravity sectors, the gravitational force increases to low, medium and finally high. When the pace gets desperate, change position with the Warp Drive, or become invisible to the cosmic debris by using your Camouflage Cover, Can you beat the high scores? Can you reach Sector ninety-nine?

When you shoot the Asteroids, they will break up to give you two small Asterites or an Asterite and a Hermit Craft, or, rarely, two Hermit Craft. Shooting a Hermit Craft and collecting the residual canister will result in an increase in your supply in turn of Radiation Bombs, or Warp Drives or Camouflage Covers. The Starcraft, Octanoids and Decanoids will move towards you, unless you engage Camouflage Cover. When a Starcraft is destroyed, a Spore is produced: when a Decanoid is destroyed, four Spores are produced. The Spores will move rapidly towards you, unless you engage Camouflage Cover.
