You are captain of the cargo ship, responsible for delivering supplies to our troops on the front line. Your ship has a small fleet of robotic fighters which you control from the relative safety of vessel.

Your mission:
- Do not let ANY enemy ships get past your fighters! Each enemy ship that makes it past the bottom of the screen will attack your ship, and you lose a fighter.
- Use your fighters as weapons! Crash into enemies to destroy them before they can get past you.
- Strategic suicide is a powerful tactic! When you launches a new fighter, it releases a high energy burst which destroys all enemies in range.
- Self-destruct to preserve your ammunition! A touch will cause your current fighter to self-destruct. Before the ship blows up, it ejects its ammunition so that the next fighter can pick it up.

Your ammunition:
- MACHINE GUN -> Otherwise known as the 'pea shooter'. But you'll miss 'em when they're gone.
- ION CANNON -> This gun slices through your enemies and keeps on going.
- PLASMA REPEATER -> Your most powerful weapon. The plasma ammunition runs out quickly, however.
- BIG RED BUTTON -> The ultimate weapon. A touch to eject the fighter's ammunition and self-destruct.

Your power ups:
- SHIELD REPLENISH -> The penguin protects you. Grab this power up to restore shields to 100%.
- DAMAGE REPAIR -> The penguin gives you life. Grab this power up to repair all damage to your fighter.
- SUPER SHIELDS / EXTRA LIFE -> Restores shields to 100% and gives you temporary invulnerability. TIP: If you let it pass through the bottom of the screen, you will be rewarded with an extra fighter.

- 3 control modes
