Description

BlackHole is a mission based, space shoot 'em up.

The story behind the game is that the Mafia want to discretely move a large quantity of money about. They hit on the idea of hiding the money in a pizza box and having the money moved around by an innocent pizza delivery service. The player takes the role of the space pizza man and sets out to deliver what is supposed to be a pizza. He is therefore very surprised when several ships forcefully relieve him of his cargo and open fire.
Evading destruction he returns to base where the Mafia are waiting. They are not happy. However, being businessmen they recognise that only an ace pilot could have escaped his pursuers in the space equivalent of a delivery truck and survived. They offer a deal which is to work for them until the debt is paid off or, ..... well there is no or - just an 'Or else!'.

There are six missions in the game and there is a multiplayer option. Missions can be played in any order and they can be replayed to achieve a higher score. After each mission the player gets paid and this allows the craft to be upgraded.

The keyboard is used to control the ship and the mouse is used to fire the weapons.
