Gameplay Edit

The player controls a Star Cruiser with high maneuverability and speed. Their objective is to destroy the Energy Cannon which is surrounded by castle walls. The walls are comprised of three revolving layers in an octagonal configuration. The player can destroy sections of the wall and make a path to fire directly upon the Energy Cannon; however, this also leaves their ship to be fired on as well. If the player destroys all the sections of a layer, then the layer below it becomes the outer layer and a new inner layer generates. In addition, the castle walls release energy bombs which will seek out the player's ship. If an energy bomb or fire from the Energy Cannon hits the player's ship, they will lose a life.
