Official description

In 3530, Stellarfleet Captain Drak Hellbent achieved annihilation of Kraellian usurpers throughout Aldonicha.
Relive legendary action with this computer representation of the torturous terrain that was encountered by Hellbent.
Ten distinctive levels of fast frantic arcade action!

Collision with obstacles and forbidden areas will cost you a life. Destroy Ground Targets and Enemies by shooting. Collision with enemies will deplete your Shield Energy. To replenish Shield Energy and Fuel, collect supplies by passing over 'S' and 'F' silos.

The Panel shows at 'GT' a red portion indicating the number of ground targets that you must destroy before you can leave to the next level through the top gate. Destroying targets in excess of this requirement, will diminish the green bar and will build you a Bonus Score Award. 'F' on the Panel shows the number of fuel units you must collect to achieve a Bonus Multiplyer. 'S' shows the number of Shield Units you must collect to be awarded an Extra Life. When achieved, ** is shown. Blanks at 'F' or 'S' show that you have destroyed fuel or shield units to the extent that an award is no longer possible.

Ship icons at the bottom of the panel show the number of lives remaining in excess of the current life.
