DESTROY THE ZIAS!
Time: A.D. 2192.
The Zias, warriors from a distant star, have carved out a stronghold
on one of Saturn's moons. Their colony serves as a forward base
for an attack against Earth!
In their first assault, the Zias invaded the Earth United Nations
colony on Jupiter and decimated the EUN defensive forces.
The aliens deployed an almost invincible army of war machines,
brought to life by the futuristic GEO System. This diabolical
computer control center is the ultimate combination ot technology,
cybernetics and destructive will!
In every encounter so far, the powerful GEO system has demol¬
ished the Earth's armada. In a last-ditch effort to stop the Zias,
humans have created their own fighting machine — the Bari-Arm!
Rari-Arm is a cyber-attack vehicle of enormous power and tactical
intelligence. It is alive! it can take the form of a small fighter —
or morph into a high energy-combat cyborg with incredible
The arrogant Zias have already begun their next assault. It s up to
Rari-Arm to destroy the evil alien invaders — tor good!

the more powerful your weapon will be, up to the third pulse
(maximum power level). You can fire at any time during recharge,

setting in Option Mode. You can gain extra reserve craft as you

You can also hold down the Fire button for rapid fire, although
