A fiendish new dimension
comes to one of the most popular
arcade games of all time!
Always be sure that the power to your Odyssey^2 console is turned off
before inserting a game cartridge. This protects the electronic
components and extends the life of the unit.

1 Press 1 on the alpha-numeric keyboard.
2 You are in deep trouble! Eight robots with laser cannons are advancing
into your sector. Each heavily armed robot is protected by a shield wall.
3 The robots are commanded by a Merciless Monstroth
that scuttles back and forth through the air.
4 Things don't look good! You have only one robot defender. It's inside
that mobile laser cannon at the bottom of the screen.
5 Push the joystick of the right hand control to the right to move the
cannon to the right. Move the joystick left to move the cannon to the
left. Press the action button to fire your lasers.
6 Three high density molecular laser shields protect your cannon against
enemy firepower. Each shield
also houses one additional cannon.
7 If your cannon is hit by enemy laser fire, it will disintegrate and
leave your robot unprotected. Use the joystick to rush your robot
underneath one of your shields. Press the action button and your robot
will be inside a new laser cannon-but the shield will be gone.
8 If an unprotected robot is stunned by enemy laser fire,
it will be captured by the aliens.
9 A direct hit of your laser fire will disintegrate an enemy cannon or an
enemy robot. The enemy shield wall is impervious to earth weapons.
10 A direct hit will disintegrate the alien
monster-but a new one will
swoop onscreen after a few seconds. Both sides have an unlimited
supply of ammunition.
11 You win the battle by destroying all of the enemy robots and any monster
remaining onscreen after the destruction of the last remaining robot.
12 You lose the battle if your unprotected robot is hit by enemy laser fire.
13 The first side to win ten battles wins the war.
