The game requires you to use the remote (HOLD IT HORIZONTALLY); use the "A" button to start the game and launch the ball, the "B" button to pull up the instructions page, and the arrow button to pause the game. Tilt the controller left or right to move the paddle.
You begin each game, or "Wave," with 3 shields. The asteroids can not pass through the shields but the ball can, as well as bombs being dropped by random UFO's. In order to "break apart" the initial or larger asteroids you must hit them on the top, otherwise the ball will ricochet off. If you fail to properly "play" the ball, meaning you miss it, or are hit by a UFO you lose a shield. The game ends when all shields have been destroyed and the asteroids reach the earth. In the game play there are random power-ups to help you but be wary of the side effects. Once you improve your skill level try tapping the "A" button to curve the balls trajectory.
