This static shooter requires the player to defend a Cliffside fortress from a succession of pirate attacks. The likes of Admiral Drake and Leif Skaldkruser send their forces moving towards you, one or two at a time initially, from the left of the screen. You control a turret on the right-side cliff face, which shoots bombs at them. You have a protection barrier, activated with the right mouse button, but this takes time to regenerate after taking a hit, and you can’t shoot while it is active.

As the bombs have a trajectory causing them to drop as they move through the air, gravity must be taken into account. A few shots will destroy each vehicle, while your turret is also vulnerable to repeat attacks. At the end of each level the pirate leader will attack, moving around the screen as he fires at you – the more complex shot-arc timing makes these rather like Bosses.

Successful shots award points, which can be traded in after the level for improved weaponry, an energy recharge, faster firing and multiple balls. Bonus icons come through the screen at random, offering one of these items for a limited time.
