You must shoot the robots and aliens in order to progress through the levels. Most take more than one hit from the Standard Issue Laser. Tokens which float across the screen should be collected. They have the following effects: (1) 200 point bonus, (2) extra life, (3) extra weapon, (4) 800 point bonus. After level 4, the scores for killing aliens and collecting tokens is increased.


Once a weapon is collected, a new icon will appear at the bottom of the screen.
