Save the city below by taking on the aliens attacking in the sky over the dam. Your job is to protect the Dam from being eaten by the “Nibblers” that move across the screen as well as preventing invasion of the city by either the “Zoomers” or the “Droppers”
UFO’s move across the screen and are indestructible. They will spawn “Droppers” as they move from left to right and then will later come back for another pass over the city.
Zoomers also appear randomly and will traverse the screen left to right as quick as they can move down to try and invade the planet.
Additionally you should watch out for the clouds and their acid rain that can spill in light or heavy showers. Usually it’s worth sacrificing your own shield to save the city but definitely shoot them out of the sky as soon as possible.
Periodically you will also see a “Grabber” who will announce his presence and try to lift you off the screen so that the city is defenceless.
