Reviews were mixed for this Arcade port. It certainly looks and sounds pretty good on startup. The goal is to kill all the slimly alien bug critters on each space station and make it to the next. It's NOT original at all, but the additional of a 2nd player and this room based blaster is unique over the usually top down view in this type of action (Alien Syndrome, which i really like on the ST too is an example). Once you get on to the first space station, unless you have a 2nd player only the top half of the screen will be in action. There is a lot of shooting a lot of getting hit by aliens. It is very frantic, twitchy and button mashing. You can throw bombs wilt the space bar (Full instructions At Atari Mania).. You can waggle the joystick to get rid of a tentacle, or other baddie attached to you. Pull down and press the button to pick up items. Press and hold the button to then change the angle of the gun. Mindless fun.
