The game has 3 different phases , even a mothership level.

The game is ok i think.. the second phases are
some sort of fast moving space invaders clone.

Even though the game playability could be better, Its possible to learn certain tacticts to survive longer


I had a different version of this or a very similar game on tape back in the 80,s.

Does anyone know what game resembles the first levels of this game ?

a great use of the Atari tape deck was made use of with this game, with the tape deck being 2 track it could load the game and levels of one track while playing speach from the other so that you had a 50's style space backing track as you waited for the game to load. just a pity that it was the worst game i ever bought for my atari

This isn't an either/or game-it uses both a minifloppy diskette and a cassette tape. The disk holds the game play, graphics, special effects, etc. The cassette gives you a very good sound track with voices from Earth controllers, mechanical robot speech, and even a thank-you message from the President, by deep-space radio, of course. The tape also controls parts of the game play.
