Two flickery objects flit around the screen, flying in a manner much like Daddy Longlegs do. I hate Daddy Longlegs. Like pissed flying spiders. Horrific.

This is supposed to be a game for two players. You can’t actually control either ship, all you have to do is press a button to release some bombs. One ship fires asterisks. The other fires hashtags out in all directions, much like someone trying too hard on Twitter.

At some point one of these bombs might hit the other ship and you win. I’ve never seen that happen:
