GAME STORY

It is now the year 2159. Earth has been attacked by forces from the
planet Reticulon.

Several hundred years ago, Reticulon sent messages conveying their
intent to attack. The Earth Federation Government was formed,
unifying the whole world. The Earth would be protected by the Federation Army.

Unfortunately, the power of the aggressive Reticulon forces proved
too much for the Federation Army. Earth was subjected to a crushing defeat.

There is one last chance. The Federation Army has a secret megabase on
the Moon. Here, the Earth's finest scientists and technicians have
developed an ultra-performance fighter ship. The name of this
fighter is SolarStriker.

The only way to foil the menacing Reticulon's mission is to fly to their

Increasing your power

The power of your missiles increases when you fly over the power up
items that appear throughout the game. Your missiles have four
different power levels. To get to the second level of power, you need
to pick up one power up item. To get to each level of
power you need to pick up two power up items.

You get 200 points for each power up item that you pick up.

If you pick up a power up item when your missiles are at maximum
power, you get 1000 points.

* Your missile power will decrease by one level if one of your
SolarStrikers gets shot down.
* You get extra SolarStriker for every 50,000 points.
