Description

Alien Stars is a scrolling vertical shooter. Players are cast in the role of a lone pilot who must shoot his way through swarms of enemy waves and boss ships over 11 stages. The player's ship can sustain a certain amount of damage, and is protected by both a shield and underlying armor when the shield is depleted. In order to improve firepower, three different colors of power-up can be collected which will improve the indicated type of weapon. Missile power-ups can be collected which will add to the player's ammunition for these secondary weapons. Other power-ups include Life, Shield, Battery restoration, armor restoration, double damage, missile strikes (which fire outward from the player), nuclear weapons and points.

Scores can be published on the Alien Stars website.
