On all other platforms, this is an isometric arcade adventure. The Commodore 64 has the same objectives, but is viewed from the top down, as an isometric perspective is not as easy to achieve on the C64. The game sees the player in control of a tripod walking machine that that can fire a bomb in a straight line, where it bounces along, until it hits an object.

Hopefully that object will be one of the huge insects that is terrorising the series of cities. If not the bomb will destroy one of the buildings in the landscape, causing far more damage than the insects.

In each city, there is also a queen, that there is high priority to kill, failure to do so will see more insects hatch and start eating everything in sight.

The game is a monochrome adventure, with striking, detailed graphics, but also a punishing difficulty level, as the bombs will often be launched as an insect changes direction.
