Llamasoft is one of those companies that got famous fast, though looking at this game one wonders why. The sky is raining hammers (makes a from ravening aliens I suppose) and Chico must carry bags from one side of the screen to the other under the partial partial shelter of four blocks which are being eroded by the falling hammers. In between the shelters Chico can nut the hammers for points, but after ten he gets a headache and must then nut a red aspirin hammer. Hammers hitting his body instead of his head lose a life. Getting a money bag across safely restores one shelter. Badly put together and rather pointless.
