Three creatures – Brain, Robot and Xylon – must find each other and unite to destroy an alien in a deep space complex.
You initially have control of the Xylon, a beast with light armour and slight fire power. Such a large task for such a small hero. He's not only got to help destroy the alien but he's got to take out the station's dangerous defences. There are gun implacements, enemy space ships and power points to knock out, plus electrified fences to avoid. You can also try the teleports which'll take you deeper into the complex.
When you find the Robot, the next piece of the hybrid creature, link up with it and move on to find the last component – the brain. The Xylon and Robot must work in tandem to defeat yet more complex defences– this time streams of electric current and more powerful laser posts. No one character can complete the game because each has different characteristics and powers. When, for instance, you meet up with Brain you have the intelligence to solve the complex's puzzles, the armoured protection of The Robot, and the speed and agility of The Xylon. That's all you'll need to confront the alien.
The game's not over once you've found and blasted it. The members of the team are scattered throughout the complex. You've got to find them again and go after another alien.
Repeat the process another two times and you've completed the game. Sounds so simple but most of the complex screens are lethal.
Combine that with a frustrating search and you've got an inventive if graphically mediocre game.
