A clone of Astro Fighter [1], itself an updated clone of Space Invaders.
You have to destroy the enemy ships and avoid or destroy the meteorites, using either your ship's gun or exhaust, before your fuel is used up. The ship has a shied that can take up to 3 hits.


The game itself runs fine in the CoCo 3, but the skill level selection screen uses one of the VDG semi-graphic modes, causing it not to be properly displayed by the GIME
