Game Instructions –

In the year 20XX, a single alien has invaded Earth’s military forces. The alien was strong, and managed to wipe out most of the earth’s force. The only survivors were a group of clumsy interceptors.
These interceptors attempted to make a high-performance tank (failing miserably in the process), but ended up making a baseball robot, BASE-kun. Catch the enemy’s ball bomb, then throw it at the blocks to destroy them and defeat the alien (note that this bomb can only be thrown diagonally).

Use 4 and 6 to move left and right; when you catch the (square-shaped) ball, press X to throw it to the left, or press Z to throw it to the right. If you get hit by the bat missiles raining down from above, you lose a life. To catch the ball, simply touch it.
If you hit the alien, you get 100 points; if you don’t catch the ball, you lose a life also.
