    ON A SMALL PLANET in a remote corner of the universe, the evil Bungeling Empire has created the most fearsome enemy you will ever face: The War Machine. Directed by an Artificial Intelligence bent on total conquest, it is a complex of factories scattered throughout six heavily defended islands. Day and night, these factories churn out an endless armada of remote-controlled weapons of doom. Their ultimate aim is clear: the final destruction of Civilization As We Know It.

    Before all of Humankind is crushed beneath the Empire's iron heel, one faint hope remains. A single, highly mobile raider might, just might, be able to penetrate the Bungeling defenses. Only a fighter pilot of enormous skill and strategic savvy could dare attempt such a mission. We turn to you in our hour of desperate need.

    At dawn, you move. From an off-shore carrier base, you will command a very fast, but very vulnerable, helicraft. You must launch a surgical strike at the very heart of The War Machine. You will be attacked by every weapon known to man, and some not yet dreamed of. Somehow you must carpetbomb the Bungeling factories into obliteration before they complete their Ultimate Weapon.

    We wish you all the luck in the galaxy. You'll need it!

    An interplanetary reconnaissance team has discovered that the tiny, but dangerous Bungeling Empire is creating an awesome War Machine. Their plan: to conquer Earth! Civilization as we know it seems doomed. However, one faint hope remains: a surgical helicopter strike by a single highly-skilled and courageous raider--you, if you have the right stuff.

    GAME PLAY: As the game pak scrolls a huge playing field of 100 screens, your helicopter circles the world in search of the six secret factories of Bungeling Bay. You can use the control pad to fly in 16 different directions as your helicopter moves in its critical search for the factories. each is heavily armed, so you must plan your method of attack carefully. Riddle the gun turrets and tanks with machine gun fire. Pay attention to intelligence reports. Bomb the battleships and factories. And don't forget to protect your host carrier from marrauding fighter planes. It's you against all odds. Can you save Earth?
