The player’s goal is to fight off seven Burai bases. Burais are cyborgs that have a high intellect. You start out with a basic cannon but can upgrade it throughout the levels. Those upgrades include lasers, a ring, and a missile launcher, all of which are stronger. There are four difficulty settings the player can choose from. The easiest setting is Eagle, medium is Albatross, hard is Ace, and an unlockable difficulty, Ultimate, is very hard. Your character can move in eight different directions and can shoot in two different directions for each direction you can move.
