Description
One of the most creative games of it's time. You control a shooter at the near end of a series of pipes. You must eliminate all the enemies that approach you from the far end of the pipes. Clear all the enemies to travel down the pipes and to the next level. You are equipped with a super zapper which will eliminate all of the enemies on the pipes. Avoid colliding with other enemies, enemy fire, and the spikes left behind when you travel down the pipes to the next level. Each new level features a new shape of pipes. This game is certainly one of the most intense games of its time.

NOTE: There are conflicting sources that say this game was made in 1981 while the game title screen in attract mode says MCMLXXX (1980)
