War of the worlds!

After 1000 years of peace, war was a thing of the past. That is until some very strange things started to happen. Scientists noticed that stars in the sky began to disappear! They soon found out that it was the beginning of the most powerful alien invasion ever. With the entire galaxy under alien rule you, singlehandedly, must infiltrate their defenses and destroy the source of power which gives the enemy their strength.

In Hellfire, an old Toaplan arcade game, you must shoot your way through 6 levels of side scrolling action in order to reach the alien's power supply. For weapons, you start off with a standard shot cannon, but by grabbing the correct power-ups you can increase your firepower fivefold! The direction of fire can also be selected from 4 different firing patterns. Add on a shield for protection, and option fighter to double your firepower, and you just might have a chance for success!

As your progress deeper into alien space, the ememy's number increases dramatically. In order to survive, you will have to maintain a high level of power as well as use the proper directional alignment for eat of the diffent threats as well as the right times to use the powerful HellFire weapon!

The aliens have taken over one of the our historic wonders of the ancient world! Clean up the desert and then proceed carefully into the depth of one of the crypths to their stronghold in King Tut's tomb! Can the HellFire fighter penetrate and complete this mission?
