OBJECT OF THE GAME
You control a World War II attacker bomber in a special, death-
defying mission...where EVERYTHING you destroy counts. Your
targets are combat ships, aircraft carriers, tanks, trucks, trains and
the like, and you must fight DAY and NIGHT to succeed! You can fly
your plane up, down, left, right, or at an angle, and both drop BOMBS
and shoot BULLETS. WATCH OUT for the ENEMY! They always fire at
you from the ground and chase you in the air!
Runways appear at the beginning and between battle cycles. Your
score appears between battle cycles and when you are hit. There are
4 skill levels and 12 types of targets. Both single and multiple hits
are possible. Scoring gets tougher by the minute! This is prime-time
WAR ACTION! If you fail the first time, you are given 3 more
chances! So BLOW them to PIECES, score HIGH and get you mission

Your plane takes off from the runway. Press BOTTOM edge of Disc to
make it GAIN ALTITUDE.
Flying over land and sea, you spot enemy tanks, anti-aircraft posts,
and a fleet of warships. They won't fire at you unless you attack
first...but enemy planes will...and they're often near. You decide to
bomb a large warship. To drop a BOMB, press either TOP Side Button.
Suddenly they're firing at you from two ships. Those are guided
missiles that will destroy your plane on contact. Several more
missiles are coming from another ship approaching on the horizon.
You must duck the attack! Use Disc to move your plane in the
direction you want it to go. Press RIGHT edge to make it go to the
RIGHT. Press LEFT edge to make it go to the LEFT. And so on. To
make it go DOWN, press TOP edge.
You're flying over dangerous land. Before you can catch your breath
again, anti-aircraft missiles are guided toward you from different
locations. A tank is also firing at you! To duck their attacks, twist to
your left a bit, then to your right, using the Disc.
Below, you see a train and a few trucks you would like to blow up. Go
for a low-altitude, multiple-hit encounter. Press TOP edge of Disc to
plummet, then press either TOP Side Button. Several times on target!
There! There! There!
You are cutting through the sky at an angle, flying at high altitude to
destroy both sections of the bridge. But before you can drop the
bomb, a high-speeding plane attacks! Watch his bullets! Shoot! Shoot!
Suddenly it's getting dark. Still you must continue. Colored flak
illuminates the night as the enemy fires on you. Your turn! Drop a
bomb, another one...fire! Look to your left, look to your right. Pull
up...higher! Get away from the mess!!
