Hordes of robotic ships from another world threaten the earth. As the newly self-aware hive mind of every CRT monitor display humans threw away to replace with fancy flat screen plasma tvs, you have to prove your worth and defend those who originally created you. Maybe they will want you back?!!
CURRENT SIZE OF ENEMY FLEET
Choose one of three possible forms the CRTs could take. The light ship is more maneuvrable. The heavy ship packs more punch, can take more damage but is awkward to shoot and move with. The medium ship is somewhere inbetween. Destroy every robot on your path, the humans depend on it!

- The arrow keys move the ship
- The 'C' key shoots with your main weapon. Shooting slows down your movement, so stop shooting to avoid enemy fire and obstacles.
- The 'X' key uses your special weapon, which has limited ammunition.
- Destroying a lot of enemies will make them drop power-ups which upgrade either your ships' fire power, firing speed or movement speed. If you get destroyed, you lose one level of each.
