|What’s it about:
In this sidescrolling Defender-like game you fly your starbike around the lunar landscape and collect Orolas. That’s small green aliens to you and me, and they’re really good for making perfume and catfood. You have to collect them from each level and dump them into a teleporter to send them back to your ship. When all aliens are collected you carry the last one to your lunar module and take off for another level. The number of aliens you have to collect on every level varies and you can leave the planet without collecting all the aliens but
you will not get a bonus if you do so, and your task will only be more difficult as you get more enemies on the next level.
The lunar surface contains some parabolic scanners that are sensitive to the alien lifeforms you’re looking for, so if you fly past the scanners they will tell you if an alien is close by. The aliens, not knowing what they’re in for, is quite friendly and will chirp at you if you get near them. All in all -- they’re quite easy to find.
OSX: Open DMG file and drag the programfile to the location where you want it. Then doubleclick it to run the game.
