How To Play

  • Earth is being threatened by enemies from the moon.
  • Now it is up to you to protect Earth from invaders, therefore you are sent to the moon.
  • Shoot as many enemies as possible. Humanity will thank you.
  • Avoid shooting astronauts, they are waving a flag.
  • Some other Earth generals are launching nuclear weapons into space, avoid them too. They will end any life, including yours.
  • Keep in mind that you don't have an infinite number of bullets, so check your magazine and, if needed, reload your weapon.


  • The latest implementations were a randomized appearance of objects, and the levels were adapted.
  • A fitting background music was added.
  • Different indicators were added (score, time, magazine).
