Taken from the game's instructions:

A wave of insurrection has left the earth littered with bombs primed to explode and destroy mankind.Your commission is to clear the pyramids of ancient Egypt, castles of medieval Britain and hustling, bustling modern day New York City of this danger before their history becomes just a history.Hurry time is not on your side,neither are the many enemies left to harass you.


Taken from the games instructions:

You must collect 20 bombs from each screen, flashing bombs score more points and large bonuses are scored for collecting a majority of flashing bombs. Your Jetpack allows you full vertical movement in all directions which you must master quickly to work your way through the platforms of each level.
