This cassette consists of two games: Alien Rain on side A and Outrider on side B.

Alien Rain is a variant of Money Wars. The player has to rescue stranded life forms while watching out for aliens falling from the sky. The life forms are located at the right side of the screen and the player has to move from the left, across the screen, pick up the life form and then return to the starting position. Three Space Invaders-style shields offer some protection but are quickly destroyed.

Outrider is a shoot 'em up game controlled with only one button. The player controls a fighter ship circling a mothership that needs to be protected from various aliens. As the player ship moves around the mothership it constantly rotates and by pressing the fire button the aim is locked and shooting begins. There are four different kinds of aliens worth different amount of points. The game goes on until the mothership is completely destroyed.
