Game Introduction

You progress up the screen until you reach the end. At this point you start moving backwards back to where you start from. Once back at the beginning you start forward again for the final time. When you reach the end again you have to face the boss. Ship changes form depending on energy level. You die when you run out of energy. You are highly vulnerable when you are changing form. No matter how much energy you have if you are hit when changing you will lose a life. You can pick up one to three small aircraft that act as shields. You can re-arange the pattern of the shield craft using button number two. The objective of the game is to progress through a scrolling level three times to get to the boss. Once the boss has been killed, you go through a time warp back in time.
