Game Introduction

Even though this game is from Sega, it looks like a more colorful version of Space Invaders.

Game Play

Move your base left or right to shoot the endless waves of aliens marching towards earth. There are four shields (rocks?) that you can hide behind, but eventually they will be destroyed either by enemy missiles or by the enemies themselves. The aliens' descent quickens as you eliminate them. Shoot the flying saucer for extra points.
