    BATTLE ALIENS IN 3-D



    Light years from earth, there's a world in trouble and pain. Graz, the alien Serpentbeast, and his gang of galactic thugs are terrorizing the eight worlds of Solar System #517. The citizens are losing ground fast--and hope. They need a hero to save their solar system from disaster.

    GAME PLAY: You are the mighty WorldRunner, the only one who can restore law and order to Solar System #517. Your challenge: free each of eight planets from the terrifying Serpentbeasts. But before you can even get close to a dragon you must deal decisively with menacing Meanies, White Willies, bottomless pits, and towering infernos. Use your fighting skills and fast reflexes to run, jump, and blast your way from planet to planet and the ultimate battle with the Serpentbeasts.
