Description from the packaging.

Astro Chase, "there is no escape!" is a Space Arcade game designed by Fernando Herrera, the first person ever to win the Atari Star Award.

In Astro Chase, you must defend Earth from an awesome attack by aliens. They have surrounded our galaxy with a force field from which there is no escape. Space mines have been set in orbit around Earth. The enemy has launched wave after wave of attack vessels, capable of shadowing your every move as they chase you throughout space with a relentless barrage from their lasers. Use your shields! Watch your fuel! Avoid the force field! Destroy the enemy space mines, quick, use Single Thrust Propulsion for without it you are surely doomed!

Astro Chase is the ultimate challenge. Speed, skill, and strategy are a must. With the multiple skill-level feature you can learn to play in a minute a game you'll want to play again and again and again...

Designed by Fernando Herrera.
