Description

Pheenix is a classic shooter, similar to Space Invaders: In five different screens, you have to shoot birds whose droppings prove harmful for your spaceship. Luckily, you can activate a shield that will protect your vessel for a short time (you can't shoot during that time either though).

While the five different screens are similar, each one is unique in its way: In the third screen, you first see eggs flying around before the birds hatch and start unloading on you. And in the fifth screen, you have to destroy the enemy mothership.

Trivia

The title of this game is one of the typical examples where developers made a coin-op conversion and, in order to avoid legal trouble, simply changed the name of the title a bit (in this case "Pheenix" instead of "Phoenix").
