This is a very superior 'Missile Command' style game and a games designer in one - another from the specialists in games for eight-fingered players. Your base has 4 missile launch pads supplied by underground tunnels, and 2 laser bases at either end of the screen. Incoming alien missiles split into 4 small and hard to hit warheads if not destroyed quickly. You must select the launch pad required, fire the missile, guide it to its target and detonate it at the correct moment. If that's not enough, low flying alien craft bomb your installations. If you like a fast difficult to master game, then this is for you. But many factors can be modified by the clever POKE facility which allows you to redesign the game to suit your own taste. On the reverse side is a free game called Destroyer. Uses 6 control keys, no joystick option, excellent graphics. recommended. CRASH overall rating 78% M/C.
