The game was very similar in style to the arcade game Buck Rogers. Taking control of a WW2 aeroplane the player had to attack enemy installations on the ground whilst avoiding enemy planes and flak. Once a sufficient amount of installations had been destroyed the level's main target appeared. When this had been taken care of the player moved on to the next level with the rewards of a score bonus and an extra life.[2]
