"The graphics and sound in this game are barely adequate... I doubt if it would be worthy of publishing in a magazine."

"This game will provide a good deal of entertainment and is great fun to play."
Electron User


You are under attack. Deadly missiles are approaching your ground bases, from above. Each missile is capable of totally destroying its target. Your duty is to defend your cities from the waves of missiles by firing rockets from your three bases and steering them towards their targets. You may have up to five rockets in the air at once, but beware - you can only direct the last one fired, and you only have a limited number of rockets available for each wave. Luckily, between waves of missiles you get a chance to reload! To stay in the game, you must preserve your cities.

A bonus is awarded for every 1500 points scored. There is on-screen scoring for one or two players, and the program also keeps track of the high score.
