Obliterate is a cartoon, arcade-action game, set in over 36 levels and 3 worlds, similar to Crazy Chicken. Alien blobs have travelled across the galaxy to mount an attack. The aim of the game is to protect Earth and destroy the alien invaders. Armed with a laser weapon, the player must blast his way through dozens of levels of alien attack. The action starts on earth, but the battle will continue into space and all the way back to the alien homeworld. Each mission takes place on a single screen in a different location and requires performing a specific task, for example, destroying a designated number of aliens before the time runs up.
