The war has now been raging for five standard years and now a way has been found to bring it to an abrupt halt. The alien High Command's base has been found on a small canyon riddled planetoid. Your task is to find the mothership, then blow it to pieces. To reach the mothership you must traverse four heavily defended canyons and each canyon has a sentinel. These sentinels are similar to the mothership. but smaller and they require a number of shots to destroy them. There are a number of items that you can pick up. These include fuel drums, these will boost your fuel level. If you run out of fuel, you won't lose a life, you will lose the game!
