If centered, the two cannons line up vertically; moving them toward the edges of the screen splits them apart diagonally. A succession of alien spacecraft and creatures take center stage in the middle of the screen, and players must line the two cannons up to most efficiently deal with all of the enemies while also using the smallest amount of fuel possible (end-to-end sweeps of the screen, while deadly and impressive, simply aren't practical). Some of the enemies, not content to just be evasive, return fire, providing another way for the player's cannons to be destroyed.

Greetings to all spectra-warriors... The time we have all been waiting for has come! Thanks to all our brave warriors, the invasion of the planet Spectra is over! The remains of the "MORPULS" invading force have fled back to the planet "TZORIS". Now is our chance avenge our honor.
