You´re the last hope there is to stop the enemy takeover. To reclaim the planet you must destroy the aliens once for all. There won´t be a second chance.

Story: As the pilot of the Slapfighter, you must destroy the evil alienswarms which confront you on the planet Orac.
Game: Much like any other vertically-scrolling shoot-em-up; fly around the monochrome landscape shooting the hostile aliens and ground-based guns. If an alien wave is completely wiped out, a star-shaped power-up is dropped. This will highlight one of the powers on the left of the screen. Press SPACE to select it, or alternatively wait and collect more power-ups to advance to the next power.
Review scores: 9/10 in Your Sinclair Sep 1987, 72% in CRASH #43, August 1987. "Above average shoot-em-up".
