The game that launched Imagine Software. They later made some extrordinary claims about how many copies they had sold, which were nonsense, but it was typical of the bluster that surrounded Imagine up until their untimely end in mid-1984. This is a traditional shoot 'em up, with your gunship at the base of the screen and aliens swarming on from right to left. The graphics were good for the time, but there's little to recommend it ahead of the other contemporary shooters listed here.

The ZX version was written to be compatible with the Fuller Sound Box, which included a joystick port. If the box was not connected the nonexistent port was read incorrectly making the space ship occasionally move and fire of its own free will. This was potentially hazardous on some screens - such as level 4 "The Pins" - where it was tactically sound to leave a single alien falling rather than shoot it and have an entire squadron descend on the player again.
