"This game is not bad and not brilliant - there are much better games than this."
A&B Computing

"All in all, it's an exciting game for the arcade addict with reasonable graphics and good sound effects."
Electron User


It seemed a simple mission at first - the alien bombers flying across the screen in formation were easy prey to a warrior of my experience and their fighters were fairly ineffective. But wait a minute - those H-wing fighters are a bit more of a problem, and who said anything about having to dock with the mothership to refuel? Couldn't they have fitted the long range tanks? Oh well, I'll have to live with it, I suppose. Hey! What are those things coming at me now?

A bonus ship is awarded for every 1500 points scored. There is on-screen scoring and the program also keeps track of the ten highest scores. When docking with the mothership, the bonus awarded is higher the nearer to the centre of the ship you are when you dock.

Game Controls
