The war is going badly for Earth. The Battle of Proxima has seen the defeat of the Terran Space Navy and its flagship, the TNS-HOOD, has been destroyed. A barbaric race of insectoid aliens, the Paragula, is now in position to invade our solar system.

The valiant efforts of our unfortunate pilots has, however, bought enough time for us to bring our experimental fighter, the Nova Ray, to battle readiness. You must command this awesome vessel against almost impossible odds, in the defence of Earth.

Good luck, and good hunting!


1. How do I get a better score?

Playing on a harder difficulty setting will give you more points. This is due to the much greater challenge you will face.

2. Are there any special bonuses?

Collect the spinning power-ups to increase the power of your ship.

3. How do I power up my lasers?

Collect the same laser power-up as you currently have to increase its power. You will not lose power by changing laser type.

4. How do I use the shield?

Your shield will discharge and push all hostile ships and projectiles away from you if you are hit. It will then take a short time to recharge before it protects you again.
