Description

No one noticed when they landed, and now it might be too late to stop them! In remote corners of the globe, alien invaders are draining Earth's energy and "feeding" it to their space station. When the power drain is complete, the aliens plan to vaporize Earth with a deadly laser blast. You're Captain Skyhawk - the only person who can stop them! Climb aboard your hi-tech F-14VTS jet - fully equipped with the latest in deadly weapons. A unique spy satellite viewer lets you see your entire plane as you battle alien forces over amazing gridscape graphics. Whether you're soaring over mountains at Mach 3 or floating in hover mode, your F-14VTS will measure up to any challenge! When you run out of firepower, just rocket up to your space station and load up with Phoenix missiles, Hawk bombs and more! The final challenge is still to come. You must destroy the dreaded alien space station! Fire up your afterburners, Captain! It's time to fry some aliens!
