Description

HQ relies on mercenaries to do space fighting. It seems that the Theta sector has become overrun with Glaarck spaceships. Choosing an experienced pilot, Theta assigns the mission of entering the Theta sector and destroying all hostile forces.The planet Retulla lies somewhere within the sector and is suspected to be a base for the enemy forces.

Star Blaze is a side-scrolling arcade shooter that can be played by one or two players on the same screen. The game consists of four episodes, the first of which is given away as shareware. The episodes each contain six levels including a final level against an enemy boss. Players begin by purchasing a ship and weapons, each with their own capabilities, from the $10000 they are given. Additional money is earned during battle by shooting enemy forces as well as collecting debris left behind during the explosions. In battle, the player is able to move anywhere on the screen, firing their weapon(s). A status display monitors energy consumption by the weapons as well as protective shield and hull values. The shield will reduce damage inflicted to the hull by enemy projectiles or obstacles. If the hull is destroyed, the player's game is ended. As a result of the player needing to buy their weaponry, few power-ups exist during the level. However what can be found are power-ups to to repair hull or shield strength as well as additional guns attached to the top of the player's ship. Bonus debris can sometimes be found floating in various locations which will earn more money.
