The game is played with two buttons, with the A button firing projectiles from the plane and the B button launching a special bomb attack which uses a bomb from a limited stock of bombs. Power projectiles can be obtained by destroying buildings and armored enemy planes. There are two types of Power projectiles: "P" Power projectiles, that increases the plane's firepower by one level, and "F" Power projectiles, that increases the plane's firepower to the maximum level instantly. The maximum level only lasts for a limited amount of shots.
When certain ground enemies and buildings are destroyed, money bonuses appear which give a random amount of points each. When the player reaches the end of the stage, the player has to face a boss ship.
The game was notorious for multiple instances of Engrish, such as "I never thought I'd be frying over a jungle" (said by Spanky the dolphin after clearing the Amazon level).

On release, Famicom Tsūshin scored the Neo Geo version of the game a 28 out of 40. GamePro gave it a generally positive review. While citing some issues with slowdown and an absence of sound effects for the player's jet, as well as a general lack of originality, they considered it an overall enjoyable shooter with fun weapons, huge bosses, and "crisp" controls.
