Transmit By: Secure Data Link
Regret to inform you: During your suspended animation return from deep space, Planet Earth under alien siege. 50 Orbiting war bases surround us. Heavily armed, defended by Magnetic Force weapons. Earth weaponry useless. Your Photon Fighters our contact presumed terminated. Your Photon Fighters our last hope. Urgently request you launch immediately.
A New Dimension in Challenge.
The first blips come up on your radar screen. Your dead-in-the-water starship far behind you, 50 orbiting war bases ahead of you. Before you see Earth again, you'll have to fly at the edge of oblivion. Maneuvering in tight quarters through half-a-hundred star fortresses. Playing chicken with a steady stream of enemy cannon fire.
This time, the Force is against you!
Magnetron Generators- powerful, unpredictable, magnetic force weapons- push you, pull you, swirl you toward doom. It's a daring test of strategy and tactics, of puzzle solving skill and rapid-fire respond.
Create Your Own Galaxy!
Magnetron is much more than 50 built-in levels of non-stop arcade action. It also includes a Galaxy Editor so you can create an endless variety of alien war bases to challenge yourself or your friends. You control the layout, types of walls, placement of Magnetron Generators, location, aim and firing speed of cannons. Put on your Bad Guy helmet and design an alien galaxy no one can beat!
