A traditional space shooter involving 42 rounds of battle against invading alien ships (hence the name). Each round of aliens has different movement and firing patterns.

Against such odds, you are provided with two weapons: An auto-fire cannon, and a single-fire targeting laser. Extra ships and shots for the targeting laser are earned one per successful completion of a round (the auto-fire cannon has unlimited ammo).

The tweaked CGA "low-res" video mode that Trixter mentions above is EXTREMELY UNLIKELY to run on video adapters that are not true CGA or compatible (Tandy 16 color video works fine.) In fact, the newer the video adapter, the closer your chance of it running this game approaches zero. :)
