Game Instructions –
The Machine Count’s robotic bird is trying to snatch away all the girls. You must command your gun and rescue team to save them.
Use the left and right cursor keys to move the gun and Space to shoot. If you successfully hit the bird’s lower beak, the girl will fall down, and you must move the rescue team left and right with the cursor keys to catch her.
The robotic bird is made out of a strong alloy, so shooting any part of it other than its lower beak will be ineffective.
If the girl is hit by a bullet, falls flat on the ground or is taken away by the bird, she dies. Let 5 girls die, and it’s GAME OVER…
Points for successfully freeing the girl are: 80 for a low altitude, 50 for a medium altitude, and 20 for a high altitude.
This game was inspired by the Galaxy Express 999 manga series.
