You must endeavour to complete 16 death-defying missions. On each mission you have to collect a batch of power orbs.
Destroy as many targets and alien spacecraft as possible, then search for the HQ building which you have been commissioned to destroy.
The orbs are guarded by a fleet of alien spacecraft.
Watch out also for the land-based missile launchers.
You must endeavour to complete 16 death-defying missions; on each mission you have to collect a batch of power orbs, destroy as many targets and alient spacecraft as possible, and then search for the HQ building which you have been commissioned to destroy. Each power orb is positioned in a huge container situated amidst defence pylons and force-fields. The orbs are guarded by a fleet of alien spacecraft. Watch out also for the land-based missile launchers.
To collect an orb, you must first locate an orb container and shoot at it. The container will disintegrate revealing the orb within. Now fly over the orb (don't shoot at it) and your spacecraft will scoop it up. You can only carry one orb at a time. After an orb has been collected, finy a runway and fly between the dotted lines to land your spacecraft. The orb will be deposited and your spacecraft is now able to pick up another one.
When you are on a runway, you can view the status screen which shows your current score and tells you how many more orbs need to be collected on the mission.
When you have ammassed the reqiured number of orbs, you must shoot alien spacecraft and bomb the land targets until you have scored at least 10,000 points on the current mission. You should then locate and bomb the HQ Building to complete the mission. Your spacecraft is equipped with hyperspace-jump facility, but hyperspacing is a notoriously dangerous practice - it is estimated that you have only a 65% chance of achieving a successful hyperspace-jump.
A bonus spacecraft will be awarded to you for every 20 alien spacecraft that you destroy.
Your mission begins at level A (the Alpha base). Once you have completed a level, you move on to the next one. You may restart the game at this new level by pressing the appropriate letter (A-P) at the start of the game. You can only attempt later levels after you have completed all the preceding levels. Therefore, at the start of the game you can only select level A.
It may be useful to draw simple maps of each level that you reach, and use them to try to plan your route accordingly.
Z - Left, X - Right, RETURN - Firebomb, SPACE - Turn spacecraft around, H - Hyperspace Jump
COPY/DELETE - Pause on/off, S/Q - Sound On/Off, ESCAPE - Retire from mission (Very risky!)
