Ms. Galactopus sat at home, waiting for her husband to return from earth with food for their children. Earth is very far from Galactopia, and they have a lot of children, so she knew the wait would be long. She tried to tell herself everything was fine, that he had just stopped on the way home to play a hand of space rummy with his friends. But now she can't lie to herself any longer. Something happened to her husband on earth, and now she's going there to find out what.
This is essentially level 1 of Ms. Galactopus. Your goal is to push her to the top of the screen by hitting her with your laser blasts before her children can disable earth's defense shield, allowing her to destroy the planet. Right now the game just stops when either you succeed in pushing her to the top of the screen or one of her babies makes it through the shield.
I do have ideas for opening and closing animations and subsequent levels, but here's the start.
