NO MORE "TZORIS":

Greetings to all spectra-warriors...
The time we have all been waiting for has come!
Thanks to all our brave warriors, the invasion of the planet Spectra is over!
The remains of the "MORPULS" invading force have fled back to the planet "TZORIS".
Now is our chance avenge our honor.

THE SPECTRON
Our secret weapon!
Each vessel has been equipped with a new "SPECTRON". The power of this weapon lies in the ability to create a holographic dual laser blaster. Once deployed, the enemy is caught in a cross fire.

WARNING!
The Spectron, although effective, has not been perfected and can overheat!!!

THE "MORPULS"
As you know, the evil morpuls are "MECHANOID" creatures. They can survive in a vacuum environment. Once in battle, they are programmed to be self-propelled.
The 'morpuls' travel in long range transports. Each vehicle can carry hundreds of morpuls.

  1. Diagonal -- The outer laser moves in the opposite direction of the base laser
  2. Parallel -- The outer laser moves paralled to the base laser.

You must align the enemy between the two lasers for a hit!

LASER FUEL
Your ship is equipped with 4 spectrons. Each spectron has limited energy and must be refueled. Energy level indicator is provided on you viewfinder.

ENERGY PACK

LASER TEMPERATURE
Each time you fire your laser, the temperature of the laser rises. When the laser is idle, it cools down. Watch your temperature level indicator!
If the laser overheats you cannot fire until it cools down.

BATTLE TACTICS
The morpuls will arrive in their transports, and begin to attack immediately.
The transport ships cannot be destroyed, so do not waste your fuel. Each morpul fighter ship holds 2 morpul warriors. When the morpul ship is hit, the two morpuls will abandon their craft and attack themselves.
The morpuls will attack both your base laser as well as your outer laser.
When the morpuls are hit, some of them may discharge a missile, and explode upon contact with the spectron.
If either laser is hit, you loose one spectron
