The Reap is a classic arcade shooter in Zaxxon style. The game has 4 stages. First you shoot enemies in a arctic oriented scenery. Next you fly through the deep oceans, wherein between shipwrecks and fish bones are sharks and submarines waiting for you. After this there comes a canyon-desert stage. Last but not least you fight your enemies in a skyscraper city. Every stage has two or three levels. Altogether there are 10 levels.

Your ship can get 5 weapon systems and all of them can be upgraded three times. The biggest weapon is a rocket blaster. You can also find bombs or invulnerability shields.
