Sitenotice: 11/29/2018: The wiki is back. It turns out, some anti-virus product on my web server had an issue with the latest version of PHP. My server techs have resolved this issue, and things should be working again. During the investigation, I did restore to a backup from September. There is a chance that any changes done since then were lost, but I do not recall any edits. --OS-9 Al

8/30/2016: Massive re-work is being done on the InfoBox Templates. Read that page to keep up with the plan for that, and adding better keyword tags (categories) to all the pages. --OS-9 Al (talk) 15:28, 31 August 2016 (CDT)

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
