Published and developed by Hot B Co Ltd, this side-scrolling shooter video game was released in 1991.
The player's task is to guide a spaceship throughout a range of levels, destroying numerous enemies. You can fire using the weapons on the ship in tow directions. Sometimes a defeated enemy drops power-ups thus equipping the ship with weapons of different kinds and up to two options. The additional to the standard weapons are such ones as: Laser, homing missiles and bombs.
There is also the "Edit Mode" in the game that represents an unusual feature: players can decide the options positions, and the weapons' properties as well. For example, it is possible for a player to have the laser behave like homing missiles or the homing missiles like bombs.
