Tread lightly! The transport lanes of intergalactic space have been seeded with mines from an alien vessel. Use your mine destroying blaster to blow up the mines before they annihilate you! You may survive the floating mines, but beware of the fireball, magnetic, and treacherous fireball magnetic mines... 16 fields, each one more difficult, await you!
The enemy minelayer will move through your galaxy and will seed the first mine field. The mines will be left in 3 different levels or planes Your ship will come into view after all the mines have been activated and the minelayer leaves the galaxy.
Maneuver your ship within the galaxy in an effort to destroy the mines on the first level. Beware... when you hit a large mine it breaks apart into two smaller ones! And once you destroy the mines on the first level, those on the second level move up to greet you. When those are destroyed, the mines that were on the third level will move up.
Use the joystick to rotate your ship and button 3 to thrust forward. Buttons 1 and 2 allow you to mysteriously move to a new location on the screen. Use it cautiously... it might put you in a more difficult predicament! As you travel through space, use button 4 for fire at the mines. As you destroy them, additional mines will become activated. Be careful... the minelayer may reappear to try and personally destroy you, but you can blast him as well.
Once you make that part of the galaxy safe, on all three levels, you immediately travel to the next mine field. There are 16 different mine fields, each one becoming increasingly difficult.
