Not a walk in the park

Campaign mode has six different levels, all of which are very tough to master.

In this particularly tough mission, your job is to protect the larger ship from enemy fire, and escort it to the end of the level.

Mission: Impossible

In Survival mode, your job is to stay alive as long as possible. Notice the timer at the top right of the screen.

They're everywhere!

As you can see in the radar on the top of the screen, enemies come from all sides. You can use the flip button to toggle between firing to the left and to the right.
