The game plays a little bit of the Star Trek theme at the start of a game the newer theme used in "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" and "Star Trek: The Next Generation". Also, the game plays "Vultan's Theme Attack of the Hawkmen" from the 1981 "Flash Gordon" movie whenever you get the fuel pod and become invincible.

Description

This game is a horizontal and vertical scrolling shooter with four buttons that let you shoot in four different directions. In addition to shooting enemies, you can drive your ship through an "energy" pod that energises your ship allowing you to crash into enemies without being destroyed.

How to Play

Your ship moves from zone to zone, accompanied by synthesised speech describing the name of each zone Stick Zone, Rainbow Zone, etc. There is a boss at the end of the level that is protected by two moving barriers with holes in them that you must shoot through. After completing the level, you start over on a new, harder level with a different layout..
