Ms. Galactopus

You saved the world from Galactopus, but that was a piece of space cake compared to what's coming next. Ms. Galactopus has come to earth looking for her missing husband, and she's brought their whole family along with her.

Ms. Galactopus is a "shoot-em-up" game, similar to Space Invaders and Galaxian. The player controls a space ship that moves across the bottom of the screen and fires laser missiles upwards. The goal is to defeat Ms. Galactopus and her army of babies before they penetrate the energy shield and destroy the earth.

How to Play

Ms. Galactopus travels across the top of the screen, releasing babies one at a time. The babies can't hurt your space fighter, but if one reaches the energy shield, it will weaken the shield, causing it to change color. The shield can take five hits before it disappears. With the right difficulty switch in the "B" position the babies can be des­troyed any time before they reach the energy shield. With the switch in the "A" position they can't be hurt once they are lower than the top of the space fighter. If a baby reaches the bottom of the screen after the shield has completely disappeared, it's game over!

The action in Ms. Galactopus is broken up into waves. Each wave begins with Ms. Galactopus warping onto the screen. There are two ways to complete a wave. The first way is to destroy all of the baby Galactopuses. When this happens, Ms. Galactopus will warp away and your wave bonus will be tallied. The second, and more lucrative point-wise way is to destroy Ms. Galactopus herself. Each time you hit her with a laser missile, it pushes her up the screen a little. Push her all the way to the top and you'll be treated to a spectacular dig­ital fireworks display and a healthy bonus score!
