Game description

It is now the 21st Century. High frequency radio and television communications
between Planet Earth and the space-exploring Saturn Space Station blast warn-
ings of approaching invaders, then abruptly cease.

You shed your earthly identity to become the one remaining astronaut in space.
You unite with freedom-fighter Captain Commando to enter the outer regions of
space. Concealed in a special solar-energized, jet-propelled supersonic space-
suit, and armed with multi-directional weaponry, you depart Earth's surface
on a death-defying mission.

You and Captain Commando must maneuver safely through four (4) levels of 
adventurous battle scenes, penetrating the defenses established by the Space
Soldiers of Balangool. You are challenged as you fight through Sections A to
Section Z - where "L-Brain", Balangool's Master Control, programs domination
of the universe.

Your goal: penetrate Section Z(tm), destroy L-Brain Master Control, defeat the
evil Space Soldiers of Balangool, and save Planet Earth.

L-Brain, Master Control of Balangool, secured in Section Z of Fortress Balan-
gool, headquarters of this brutal enemy force, transmits communiques through-
out the universe. Balangool Space Soldiers receive instructions from L-Brain
while engaged in interplanetary invasions. Their goal is to conquer the 

Balangool Captains are stationed at each stage, guarding giant superpowered
transmitters. Strong, red barriers surround two transmitters found at Stage
One. To clear these red barriers you must destroy the Enemy Generator supply-
ing power to the barriers. Should you successfully eliminate the generator,
proceed to eradicate the Balangool Captain. For only then can you proceed to
another Stage.

As you progress, increase your supply of weapons and energy. Without them, you
cannot reach Section Z to bring L-Brain Master Control to extinction, hero-
ically saving Planet Earth.
