Wait! Till Game is Fully Loaded Before Playing!



Quick Summary:

 Press "S" to  Start or click in game area
Use mouse to aim
Click mouse to fire lasers
Hit "Refresh"  to Stop

To start click in the game area with your mouse or hit the 'S' key to start. Use your mouse to sight an approaching ship in your cross-hairs. A target box will light up when an enemy ship is in your sights, giving the craft's closing speed and range. Click the mouse button to fire.

Whenever an enemy fighter gets past you, it will fire on your ship. You will see the screen flash and shake if they score a hit. Watch your shields - when they go, so do you.

You can pause the game at any time by hitting the 'P' key. Hit again to resume. Use the 'M' key to toggle sound on and off.

You will need a fast machine to play this game, we recommend at least a 200 MHz. It helps if you use a browser with a JIT (just-in-time) compiler for Java. Internet Explorer 4.0 seems to work best. Turning off the sound effects may also increase game speed.  We have run it on a 100MHz with IE 3.01 and it's OK, but the "P" and "M" keys dont' respond.

For best effect, you may want to maximize your browser window before loading the game. The page uses a script to set the applet's width and height to fit the available window area.
