DescriptionA traditional space shooter involving 42 rounds of battle against invading alien ships (hence the name). Each round of aliens has different movement and firing patterns.
Against such odds, you are provided with two weapons: An auto-fire cannon, and a single-fire targeting laser. Extra ships and shots for the targeting laser are earned one per successful completion of a round (the auto-fire cannon has unlimited ammo).

Low resolution mode is accessed through a group of Turbo Pascal routines called Lores Toolbox. This package is available from Elven Software Company for a fee of $45. Documentation and demo programs are included with Lores Toolbox.
Functions supported by Lores Toolbox include fast plotting and reading points, plotting circles and lines, writing text, and plotting user defined icons (as seen in Round 42).
