Frantic is a 1st person shooter where you are being pulled by gravity downwards on a moon of the planet Spectrum. You have an anti-grav pack that allows you to stop mid-air, move left or right but you are unable to move upwards. As you fall there are many aliens moving around the area and you must blast them with your laser while avoiding getting shot by them. On the left and bottom of the screen are two radars which show the position of the aliens either above or below, and left or right of your position. Using your anti-grav pack and laser uses fuel which is shown by a gauge which decreases and when you run out of fuel then it is game over.

The game was withdrawn from sale by Imagine because of their policy of only having a few games on sale at one time.
