The Hyperspatial Wireways hang in the dark void of interstellar space to guide travellers on their journeys between star systems. The Wire- ways consist of a series of wire tubes, each being made up of a three dimensional grid which is divided into separate lanes. Unfortunately, due to a little wormhole leakage, the Wireways have become infested with aliens which crawl up the tubes in an effort to short circuit them. YOUR TASK IS TO RID THE WIREWAYS OF THESE INTRUDERS. To clear the tubes you are supplied with a Zapper, which is a remotely controlled pulsed plasma device mounted on two mechletric legs. Your Zapper fires plasma bolts down the Wireways, destroying the advancing aliens. Your only other weapon is a Super Zapper which is able to clear an entire tube of all aliens currently climbing up its walls. However, these Super Zapper plasma grenades are in short supply and you are only supplied with one on completion of each screen. On completion of each screen, when you have destroyed all the aliens infesting the tube, you are warped at unimaginable speeds through the tube to the next Wireway that needs clearing. The aliens consist of: FLIPPERS which flip from lane to lane as they advance. FUSEBALLS which fly at a great speed up a single lane. TANKERS who rise up a single lane and then split into two FLIPPERS or a SPIRALLING FUSEBALL when shot. SPIKES travel up the lanes looking like single lines. PULSARS short circuit lanes making travel across them impossible. PLAYING INSTRUCTIONS Move Zapper clockwise or to the right / Key E or move joystick to the right.
