The game itself started as a port of ''Star Castle'', and still has some of its gameplay elements, such as the main enemy hiding behind a shield, and a smaller enemy chasing you around. You play a Yar, a giant fly that shoots energy missiles. On the right side of the screen is the Qotile, surrounded by a shield. You can shoot away the shield, or come right up to it and ''eat'' it. Once you have destroyed enough of the shield, you call in the Zorlon Cannon. Different variations of the game have different methods for calling the cannon. Once you have called the cannon, you position it by moving the Yar up or down. The Qotile is always moving up or down, and the Zorlon fires a PainfullySlowProjectile, so you have to LeadTheTarget carefully. Then you fire it, and get out of the way or you will [[HoistByHisOwnPetard kill yourself with your own cannon]].
