It is up to you to combat the Korts and free the lost settlers in this classic-style top-down shooter. Newer and more advanced weapons are available the more waves of aliens you destroy. And remember the advice of your forefathers: If it moves, shoot it!

The title screen is stored on disk only once, in 16 colors with a custom palette. This itself is not trivia. What is trivia is how the program converts this single picture to the EGA forced-16 palette and the CGA 4-color red-green-yellow palette: It uses a Bayer dithering algorithm that, unlike most implementations of Bayer, takes color into full consideration. The end result is a surprisingly good looking EGA and CGA display of the title screen. Check the screenshots for examples.
