Description

Forward scrolling spaceship shooting game over the planet Orac.

Alien enemies have occupied the planet Orac in the year 2059. The Alien League Of Cosmic Nations (ALCON) has determined that you are the pilot to take the Slap Fighter (Europe) / SW475 Starfighter (US) and defeat the aliens. The main feature of the game is its pickup system. You pick up stars and then you choose which powerup you want, pick up one star and you can choose shield, two stars to choose shot, three stars to choose side shot, four for wing upgrade, five for bomb shot, six for laser shot, seven for homing missiles and eight for a shield upgrade. The homing missile is probably the most powerful weapon and the bomb is quite annoying.
