Article Translation –



The year’s 2005. Japan, which had been at peace before, has been gradually dragged into World War 3. A spherical enemy ship is stationed above the sea, and the people of the neighbouring town, sensing the impending danger, started fleeing to the closest town, until you were the only one remaining.
Just then, you receive an SOS signal coming from a fishing boat in the enemy ship’s surroundings.
Wanting to help the crew inside, yet reluctant to throw away your life for their sake, you launch your radio-controlled airplane to go rescue the boat.

How to Play

The trapezoidal shape on the lower left is the plane’s control tower. It’s damage goes up by 25 every time it gets hit by a bomb, and if it gets to 100 damage, the plane immediately falls down.
You can counter these flying bombs by intercepting them with your own bombs. Furthermore, the enemy will send an attack aircraft. This plane will try to ram you down directly, but flees to safety while your bombs are going up, so use that to your advantage. However, if it reaches the same altitude as your airplane, it will hurl towards you at ludicrous speeds.
To move your plane, use the cursor keys. If you don’t press any keys, you will lower your altitude. Use the Space key to drop bombs.
Use all the information above to carry out your mission, which is to rescue the fishing boats that appear from the lower right. After saving a certain number of these, you’ll clear a round. You have a total of 3 airplanes at your disposal for every game, and cannot get any extras.
