Game Details

This game is what you'd get if you crossed Galaxin with Donkey Kong 3. Players must shoot down attacking balloons, which peel out of formation to capture the king, below the player's ship. If captured, the king is carried toward the top of the screen, and the player must destory the escaping balloon before it reaches the top of the screen.
