An alien being known only as CATS has disabled an Earth exploratory cruiser, leaving it helpless in deep space. Fearing a further attack that could result in the loss of his ship, its captain orders every space fighter on board armed and launched to deal with any unwelcome visitors that CATS might send along....

A moderately playable shoot 'em up. The ability to catch and toss around enemy ships with a tractor beam is a nice innovation, but limited power-ups and awful ship designs hurt this title. All texts are in English, but they're so poorly translated that they're hilarious - I haven't laughed so hard in months!
