This final version of the game consists of a new front end, brand new music, a high score table (and saver, should you use the disk version) and also in game sound effects and missing game elements, etc. There is  also a hidden cheat in the game, but that will be up to you to work out for yourself :)

Scientists have transported energy crystals, which purpose is to help rescue planet Earth from a future alien invasion - unaware that one of the scientists was bitten by a small green and slimy, but deadly alien. He then was turned into a huger version of the species. Now he resides inside a control room of the Vortex Complex - A high security building, where the crystals on Earth are stored. Security forces have been destroyed by beaming aliens. An invasion is about to happen.
The Prime Minister has sent a member of special forces to enter the Vortex Complex. This is where you come in ...

Your mission is to enter 16 different high security rooms inside the Vortex Complex. You must pick up and destroy all of the crystals in each room with your strong hands. After you have destroyed the last crystal, you must have enough ammo to shoot dead an alien, and pick up an exit pass. Then flee for the open door, to the next room. You have 20 minutes before the security systems will trigger a toxic gas, killing you instantly. Watch out for the aliens, spikes and falling through holes. Can you make your way through all 16 rooms of the Vortex complex and encounter the slimy green alien, or will you be too late? Good luck ... You'll need it - most definitely.
