Description from the packaging.

The outer space adventure of the year!

Earth had no warning.

Out of nowhere, and army of insect-like creatures from a distant world, using technologically advanced space weapons, ambushed and devastated Earth. Perhaps more horrendous than the nearly three billion deaths, was the portion of the remaining population that was used as host bodies for gestating alien offspring. The Fist of Earth world government was formed to defend humanity and repel the looming alien threat.

You're a member of FOE's elite fighter corps- a recruit fresh from the Academy. You've studied diligently, spent countless hours in simulations, and prepared yourself in every way possible for battle. But, until recently, the alien technology and firepower were far superior to Earth's.

Now, you've been assigned to the XF-5700 Experimental Fighter (codename: Mantis). The ship is heavily armed with Mass Driver cannons and an impressive array of missiles. Sporting a shock-proof electroluminiscent HUD, Quad-Jump drives, and a sophisticated navigational system, the Mantis is the weapon Earth desperately needs.

The fate of the world now rests in your hands.

Mantis is a state-of-the-art outer space combat saga featuring over 100 different, interlaced missions, breathtaking 3-D combat scenes, 5 megabytes of dazzling bit-mapped art, 6 megabytes of digitized speech and sound effects, and a thrilling, mood-setting soundtrack. No space combat game has ever been this spectacular, this dramatic.
