Description from the packaging.

Balakon Raider is a fast-paced action/arcade game. You will control a BTK-40 armored land speeded in a mission to liberate the cities of the planet Balakon from the forces of the evil Zarkonian Empire. You must fight your way through five provinces to the Central Reactor in Fortune City. In each city you must destroy deadly Kamikaze drone ships that are telepathically controlled by the evil Zarkonian mind lords that reside in Fortune City. They will hurl Deadly Trihull and Dipole Street Cruisers, Mine Stickers, and Omni Vicious Saucers at you. As you near the mind lords in Fortune City, the enemy ships become faster and better controlled. Between cities you must evade the indestructible Manta Death Ships, which are manned by Zarkonian crews.
