Description

Orbsters is a singleplayer shareware arcade style game which is similar to the classic game Galaxian.

Gameplay is very much in the style of the old arcade games and the objective is simply to achieve a high score. The enemy ships flock on screen making pretty patterns before diving on the player's ship, it's the players job to survive the attack while destroying all the enemy ships. Some of the enemy ships drop power up capsules which the player must fly over to collect. The full retail version has over thirty levels and allows the player to take screen shots, in .bmp format, via the F9 key.

The game maintains a high score table. The game documentation recommends that the game is played using a gamepad but joystick and keyboard can also be used.
