Not, perhaps, Derek's best effort, but still a worthy addition to this section of games. Fight your way through 4 waves of enemy fighter craft to reach the Mothership and then place a bolt of laser power in whichever of her two power cores is active. The large graphics work very well, the ships peeping coyly into the screen tram the top as the serried ranks make their jiggly way downward. Additional hazards are thrown at you in the form of flaming meteors which come down from between the attacking enemy ships, and the fact that the enemy fire power homes in your laser base so you can't sit still for a second. General rating was above usual galaxian/invader game standard, a good version of 'Altair'. Simple keys, joystick: Kempston, progressive difficulty, CRASH overall rating 69% m/C.
