Artic's engaging and addictive phoenix game has the mothership protected by a force held hovering above your base. Should your missiles hit it they are returned back as three! The mothership is only vulnerable in its control centre. There are loads of bomb-dropping aliens flapping around, Three lives, two skill levels and harder screens. Neat touch - if your base is hit the Artic lorry rushes out to repair it between lives. Generally recommended.
