Game Play

Across the back panel there are spaceship target that don't move but that have light animation. As the lit spaceships move down toward the base, if they get down to the bases, the game ends.

If the command ship is hit, it freezes the light animated spaceships for about 4 seconds, and the gun goes into automatic fire mode for this period. If a tank is hit, it destroys all spaceships above that base. There is endless time and shots for the shooter to prevent this. Gun shots semiautomatic mode unless the command ship is hit, then it goes automatic machine gun style. The longer you can prevent the spaceships from landing at the bases, the longer the player can continue to play. The gun itself is a light ray not visible. Each target has a light sensor not IR or regular light triggered.
