Bouncians have invaded from the furthest depths of space! Earth’s only hope is the Shot, a starship secretly developed for this very contingency. But the Bouncians have countered by enveloping Earth with their own Bounce Barrier, a wall that can deflect anything, even the Shot’s own bullets! Think you’re smart, huh, you sneaky aliens? Well, guess what? We Earthlings can use your bouncy wall just as easily as you can!

Click the START button on the title screen to start the game. You can also see the game credits by clicking the STAFF button or view the high score rankings by clicking the RANKING button. If you enter a username on the title screen, your score will show up in the high score rankings — if you place high enough!

Use the mouse to move the target cursor. The Shot will swerve left and right to follow the cursor. Click the mouse button to fire in the direction of the cursor. The number of bullets you can have on-screen simultaneously is indicated by the Max Bullets display. You can increase this number by collecting  power-up capsules. To get power-up capsules, watch for a Blue Bouncian that flashes white at the beginning of each stage. Shoot this Bouncian while it is holding its explosive, and a power-up capsule will appear.You can have up to eight bullets. The more bullets you get, the faster they will fly.

The Bounce Barrier will deflect bullets both from the Shot and from Bouncians. You can use this to your advantage and attack Bouncians from the side or from above. Getting hit by a bullet will cost you one ship. You have to avoid both the Bouncians’ bullets and your own that have rebounded back toward you.

The Bouncians float from side to side, turning around when they hit the Bounce Barrier and slowly descending to Earth. If they reach Earth at the bottom of the screen, it’s Game Over. Destroy each Bouncian formation before it reaches Earth! Eliminate every Bouncian on the screen to advance to the next stage.
