Game Introduction

Each player can select one of four characters, each with their own attributes and weapons: Sergeant Gunn, Hawk, Jayne Dough (also known as Blondie), and Captain Zukov. Afterwards, players can select either Mission or Deathmatch.

A mission consists of eight levels, each with a different boss enemy. Up to four players can team up to battle the Republic stronghold. Alienov is the last boss enemy on the final level. It takes approximately 30 minutes for the average player(s) to complete the mission. The 14 Deathmatch arenas take place on a wide variety of terrain.

In both games, players can pick up bonus time, extra health, ammunition and various weapons including grenade launchers, flame throwers, shock waves, missile launchers and so on.
