A single screen real-time game where you play a cannon (machine gun to be exact) turret that "tries" to shoot down all incoming enemies. Fortunately, you have unlimited ammo! Unfortunately you have a limited angle of fire (anywhere but 90 degrees left and right).
If its not you, shoot them! That's pretty obvious in this game. However, enemies come in different forms:  Paratroopers jumping of  Helicopters and if you've killed enough of them, they send in  Bomber planes where you have to shoot the plane (first) or try to shoot the  Bomb (good luck!) or die trying (the bombs don't miss). Shooting bombs score the most points (50 points).
Note: Shooting at the parachutes have a more interesting effect then shooting the paratroopers directly!
Paratroopers have a special feature, after 3 (three) paratroopers successfully parachute in your backyard, the forth will climb up the human ladder and bomb your turret to kingdom-come.

TriviaWas much more popular on 8-bit platforms, most notably the Apple IIe. As a result, most people (wrongly) assume a PC version doesn't exist.
