"The Killapede and a whole gang of creepy crawlies are out to get you. Dodge the fleas and the spiders from Mars to shoot at the multi-segmented beast. You must be quick though, as a fate of almost certain death awaits you."


Destroy the Killapede with your deadly laser beam. Hitting a body section splits the Killapede in two, thus there will be two heads. Hitting a head scores 100 points.


The Killapede will make its way down the screen by moving left and right, dropping down a line each time it meets a mushroom or the edge of the screen.


Mushrooms may be shot away by hitting them four times with your laser base.


Other nasties

Fleas will drop down the screen leaving trails of mushrooms.

Snails and snakes will run across the screen; if these are shot you will be awarded 200 points.

A spider will bounce across the screen and you must be careful to avoid it.

An ant will dash across the screen in pursuit of you. Be careful to avoid it.

All the above may be shot and score extra points.

A bonus life is awarded every 10,000 points scored.
