From the instruction manual
"You must protect your starbases by destroying all invading enemy starfighters
before they destroy you or your starbases. You must accomplish your mission
quickly, using the least amount of energy, sustaining the least damage.
Succeed, and you will be rewarded. Fail, and you will be destroyed. The
destiny of the galaxy is in your hands."
is the programmer
on this title.
This game is valued at around $2 USD. Games with boxes and manuals are worth more.
