The objective of the game is to construct the core by collecting the 12 core parts (light blue in colour), whilst avoiding or shooting aliens.


There are springs to bounce on, lifts and extending platforms to stand on and teleporters (which look like telephone boxes) to transport you from one location to another. When using a teleporter, you must enter the number of the teleporter to be transported to - so you must have been there before. You collect objects simply by passing over them.

You start with four lives.
