Moby ID: 167816


Down the Trench is a 1-player arcade game for multiple systems.

The player controls a small vessel, which must travel through a trench while avoiding laser fire, similar to the scene from Star Wars. The player's ship can move in all directions, and the difficulty determines how often lasers fire. After getting close to the end of the trench, the game transitions to targeting mode, where the player must align a targeting box to destroy the Death Star.
