In the year 2024, meteorites from space crashed down on Earth causing major destruction, obliterating cities and disrupting our fragile atmospheric balance. In its weakened state, Earth is in its most vulnerable state. Alien races are planning an invasion. You are part of an elite force of fighter pilots whose objective is to stop the invaders before it is too late.

In over 30 missions, pilot your high-tech jet over different locations on Earth, chasing alien fighters and shooting them down. Your air battles will fly you and your wingmen over major cities with landmarks you will recognize. Besides the enemy’s ship, you must carefully avoid other obstacles including mountains, skyscrapers and bridges in the thick of things.

Part of your activities will include examination of debris – including pieces of the alien craft you just destroyed, alien corpses, equipment or a weapon. Send objects to the research labs for analysis and retrieve communications detailing new orders.
