Game Introduction

During each round, you must destroy all alien ships and everytime you successfully complete this task, there is an intermission where the one-eyed alien creature will taunt you and vow to strike back.

Game Play

During the attract mode and in between rounds, the player is taunted by the one-eyed alien using digitized speech. During the attract mode: "Is there no warrior mightier than I?" and "Does anyone dare challenge my imperial fleet?". During the game: "So, a creature for my amusement. Prepare for battle!", "So, you defeated my scouts. My cruisers will destroy you.", "You are starting to annoy me, creature. My destroyers will annihilate you.", "You survived! Warriors! Dispose of this annoyance at once."

Problems/Repairs

The monitor is prone to catch on fire!

Add an additional fan or two to blow on the heatsink as the original is not adequate. The monitor is a very high-stressed GO-5 and it runs very HOT. If you own one keep a fire extinguisher close by, preferably a CO2 one.
