The President has gathered a group of brilliant scientists to help protect the Earth against a forthcoming alien invasion. From their labs the scientists create the Special Cybernetic Attack Team, a couple of warriors who are part human, part machine. These two beings have been designed to capture and adapt alien technology and weapons and use them against their attackers.
The game scrolls primarily from left to right, and your job is to fly around and shoot Shock Troopers and alien ships (Drone Blasters, Super Lasers, Quad Killers, Missile Ships, Auto-Cannons, Excavation Drones, etc.) The action takes place in the ruins of New York City, the Subterranean Realm, The Astrotube, The Battleship, and The Orbiting Platform, where you must confront the most dangerous invaders, among them Vile Malmort, the alien leader.
You can upgrade your standard weaponry and your abilities by shooting enemies that contain items and then collecting those items. These items include: speed, lasers, wide beams, bombs, and recover, which restores some of your lost energy. Twin satellites maneuver around your armament as you go.
When playing alone, you can choose either Arnold or Sigourney. If a friend joins in to give you a hand, player one controls Arnold and player two controls Sigourney. (Arnold Scharzenegger and Sigourney Weaver, perhaps?). Both characters have the same abilities. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
