Summary[edit]

Screenshot

The game is a shoot 'em up where the player's job is to protect Washington, D.C. from invading flying saucers. The game screen presents a beautifully drawn backdrop of Washington, with various landmarks such as the Washington Monument visible. After a while, flying saucers start to descend from the top of the screen. The player has to move a crosshair at the saucers and fire bullets to destroy them. If allowed to proceed unharmed, saucers will hover near a famous landmark and shoot a beam of electricity at it, eventually destroying it. If all landmarks are destroyed, the game is lost.
