Description

This game is, like the title suggests, a space shooter.

The player is in control of a red space fighter and their job is to clear the space from the enemy ships by destroying them. Enemy vehicles ranging from small kamikaze fighters to huge battle ships.

(N)JaSS is mostly mouse controlled. Accelerating the fighter is controlled with left clicks and firing the primary weapon with right clicks. Their is also a secondary weapon available.

Secondary weapons are unlocked at certain levels. The weapons are: Beam, Bullet Time, Rockets, Shield and Mines.

There are also power-ups in the game to make playing a bit easier, those are: restoring energy (your life), doubling weapon s power, invincibility and QuadDamage.

After destroying a certain amount of ships, the player proceeds to the next level. And once they have lost all their lives, it's Game Over.
