An archetypal 'asteroids' game with hardly any colour at all. Hollow outlines for the asteroids which shatter into smaller fragments when hit. Rotate, thrust and hyperspace and typically nasty flying saucers that appear when you don't need them. Two speeds (fast and suicidal and they mean it!) with bonus ships for points. A game this fast should have continuous fire facility, but doesn't, No popular joystick facility. Good value for asteroid addicts who like a fast game.
