SAVE THE HUMAN RACE!
First there was one alien space station, then there were three. Now there are eight. If left unchecked, laser gates, dragons, and other evil creatures will wipe out the human race.
To destroy each station, you'll have to confront the aliens in face-to-face combat and discover the secret destruct code. Once you have the code, use it to activate the station's self-destruction mechanism. Then the race begins. Can you get to the teleport room before the station explodes into the vacuum of space?
Are you ready? Remember, you'll need precision battle skills, a keen sense of direction, speed, and pure guts to save the human race.
