    Star Hawk © 1982 GCE [General Consumer Electric]

    Fly over your planet, protecting your comrades from alien ships trying to infiltrate your culture. Use the joystick to aim your gunsight and press button 4 to release your missiles toward the aliens. You only have 60 seconds to prevent as many enemy craft as possible from getting through.

    In a two player game, you are both protecting the planet. The action builds as you compete to destroy the aliens!

    You have a choice of two game play options. They are:

    GAME 1: Your gunsight will move proportionally to the joystick movement. In other words, if you were to move the joystick slightly to the right, and then let it recenter itself, your gunsight would have moved slightly to the right and would remain there.

    GAME 2: You gunsight will move in a direct ratio to the joystick movement. In other words, if you want your gunsight to move to the right, you would push the joystick to the right and would have to hold the joystick there in order to keep the gunsight there.

    SCORING
    Bomber: 100 points
    Missile: 200 points
    Rocket: 300 points
    Starship: 500 points
    Command Ship: 800 points

    TIPS AND TRICKS
    Command Ships: Every few seconds, an enemy Command Ship will signal his presence and appear. If you destroy him, the planet's rotation speeds up, you gunsight will get larger for 5 seconds, and you will receive double points for any other alien ships destroyed.

    Bonus: A bonus of 20 seconds is awarded for each 10,000 points scored. An additional ship (up to four) will come into view. However, your aim will have to improve after each bonus because the ships will become more difficult to hit.
