The year is 2067. Nobody knows what happened. An Ammo Relaying Cargo ship (ARC) carrying biological weapons has become infested with strange aliens. Parties sent in were slaughtered. You were in one of those parties. Stranded alone with only a few clips of pistol ammo - can you escape?

- Battle your way through six challenging levels, including a boss
- Use three weapons to combat the enemy
- Encounter seven kinds of alien
- Take advantage of level features like explosive barrels to tactically aid your fight.

Will you escape the Arc, or die trying?

Also features online scores powered by V-cade Remote... Can you top the scoreboard?

New in v1.1: Improved control system using mouse. See in-game help for instructions...
Edit: Now eight directional.

Argh. 1) ONLY DO THAT MOVEMENT FOR TANKS! :'( (and even then I wouldn't recommend it for topdown view, pseudo-8dir movement is much more intuitive in 2D) 2) If you're going to use the mouse, 360 degree shooting is a necessity.

The guy needs to stop when you're not pressing forward. The control system was better before except for that.

So 8 dir movement with mouse aiming?
Posted by Tigerworks 17th February, 2004

OK, download again (now 8 dir). Sorry about messing up the control system, as you can tell I've not really done shooters before ;)

Much better :)

Not bad at all. Gameplay is much better now, better balance.

Very fun indeed!I really enjoyed this game, even though I felt the GFX could have been better. I might review this. One question, how many levels? I think I only got to level 4, than died.

I'm pretty sure the instructions said there was 6 levels. Anyways, from the description, I didn't think I was going to like this game, but since I had a blast with Exploding Bacon, I decided to try it out. Man, was I wrong. This game is pure genius. Even though I can only get to level 4, I still like it. My name is in the high scores list, too!

Cool game Tigerworks!

Id like to correct myself in my review. There are indeed more enemies than the original two I had previously believed. Apology!

Not bad. Good idea to use the mouse aiming. But the ammo is incredibly sparse, and it takes ridiculous amounts of ammo to kill the stupid spawners. Of course, I'm not asking you to change that. Just saying that I don't LIKE it.
