About This Game

For millennia, humanity has endured a tumultuous journey marked by strife, conflict, and self-destruction. After finally learning to coexist with nature and each other, a new, unprecedented threat emerges - one from beyond the stars.

The origin of these extraterrestrial invaders remains shrouded in mystery, but one thing is clear: our survival hinges on our ability to confront them head-on.

A brave team of skilled scouts sacrifices everything to pinpoint the location of the alien stronghold. Meanwhile, tireless scientists labor day and night to enhance our most significant invention yet - a teleportation device capable of delivering our warriors directly into the heart of the enemy's lair.

But the true challenge lies ahead. Our heroes must infiltrate the alien base, gathering crucial intelligence that could mean the difference between victory and annihilation.

Now, the fate of humanity hangs in the balance as our brave fighters prepare to breach the enemy's defenses, armed with nothing but determination and the hope for a brighter future.

During the game, you must, destroy lurking enemies, or just avoid or take over them, find and use hidden aids, destroy, deactivate, and avoid different kinds of gates, get through enemy waves, and be patient, accurate, and quick when it's needed, test your memory in the labyrinths.
Do not forget to collect the missing pieces of the enemy base blueprint on each level to get to the next one and be able to unlock new spaceships!

You can select from 3 Difficulty levels, Practice, Normal, and Classic.
  • In Practice difficulty mode you have checkpoints saved to continue from a given part of a level, and 5 lives to complete every level
  • In Normal difficulty mode you have 3 lives to complete each level
  • In Classic difficulty mode you only have 3 lives to complete the whole game

The game now has a Leaderboard too, but only Normal, and Classic mode results are participating, sorry ;)

Spoiler Alert!

The game has a physics-based movement system so your space-ship moves with a bit of inertia, it could take a while to get familiar with it, and figure out how to avoid or take over e.g. the enemy missiles, but do not give up, it is worth the effort I promise ;)
Precision and accuracy are also key to getting through the levels and you will need stamina too as in Normal Difficulty mode you only have 3 lives to solve a single level, and in the good old Classic mode only 3 to finish the whole game!
