Game Introduction

A vertical-scrolling shoot-em-up.

Game Play

You begin the game controlling a motorcycle shooting at enemy cars and motorcycles. After picking up a number of power-up letters, you transform into a red sports car with upgraded weapons and continue shooting at enemy cars and motorcycles. After some more power-up letters, you transform again, this time into a flying car. The game then becomes a flying shooter. As a flying car you are able to bomb targets on the ground as well as shoot down enemy airships. There are boss fights both on the ground and in the air.
