This game is a single player shooter game based on an encounter with a swarm of intergalactic android wasps, bred by an elusive Queen wasp and her trail of mutant eggs. Additionally other entities hunt the player as he contends with this attacking swarm. The Rhizopod and Rhizopus are indestructible creeping viruses that require evasion constantly, and the long thought extinct Dodoclaw is a voracious attacking bird of prey with dangerous talons.

There are 40 levels of increasing difficulty.

Scoring is as follows:
  • Eggs: 1 point each.
  • Queen: 200 points.
  • Dodoclaw: 100, 200, or 300 points.
  • Android Wasp Swarm: 50 points per wasp.
  • Rhizopod and Rhizopus: indestructible.
  • Egg shells: 50 points.
Player awarded an extra man for every 10,000 points.
