Game Introduction

The game is very colorful and attractive.

Game Play

Shoot lasers onto targets in the mouth of descending aliens. The aliens return to the top once shot and begin their descent again. The aliens will capture astronauts if they reach the bottom and carry them back to the top. Shooting the target on the aliens before they can reach the top will release the astronaut. Once all five astronauts are captured, the game is over. During gameplay sliding doors will open to reveal one of several alien commanders. You must shoot the commander multiple times before the doors close in order to kill them. It is quite a fun game to play, the kids love it As you get better, the aliens will begin to descend in mass, dodging up and down, requiring some fast and accurate gun work. An interesting note is that the guns shoot real laser beams at the targets, not just opto sensors.
