Game Description

You control a crab-shaped shooter that travels along the outside rim of a 3-dimensional tunnel, shooting enemies down the alleys of the tunnel while avoiding any coming down the alleys.  The tunnel takes on many different forms, and the shooter has a special "superzapper" that enables it to kill all enemies present in the tunnel.

The superzapper will destroy all the enemies on screen the first time it is used.  The second time has a much more limited effect.  The superzapper will not work a third time.  However, the superzapper recharges itself at the start of each new level.

A level is cleared when all the enemies have been destroyed, or the only enemies left are the red shooters that have reached the top of the tunnel. When proceeding to the next level, shoot and destroy, or avoid, the green spikes that are left over, as a collision with them is fatal.

Technical Notes
If the game is too slow, click on the words "Full Speed" at the bottom of the game window. Hopefully this won't speed up the game more than you can handle.
