Defend the planet from the alien invaders. The invaders will attempt to capture the humanoids. If they succeed, they assimilate the humanoid into their being and the alien becomes far more dangerous and aggressive. For maximum points, you can shoot the aliens while they have a hostage, then rescue the humanoid before it falls back to the ground and drop them off safely. In later levels, the enemies get more aggessive and more creative with their attacks. You are equipped with a smart bomb which will destroy all the enemies on the screen. You also have a hyperwarp which can sometimes warp you out of danger.
