S.C.OUT is an arcade/strategy game, where the goal is to reactivate a moonbase infested with aliens. The player is equipped with a variety of offensive weaponry to fight enemies, from entity to worm to slime. The player faces barriers to success, including doors (some locked), electronic doors, L.E.D. doors, barriers that won’t allow cargo to cross them, and armored obstacles that can be destroyed only with continuous fire. The player can find devices to assist in this endeavor, from electric railways to portable batteries that give power to the railway. The player can also find safe zones and teleporters, as well as force mirrors that can be diagonal and four-way in nature.
