This game is sequal to Driller which was released in 1987.

Play is from  inside a space suit, propelled by a Jet Pack with limited fuel, and possess lasers and a shield.

Shield energy is limited, but can be recharged through pentagons and rods.

In a world viewed through the the Freescape 3D system, you roam the verdant planet of trees, buildings and underground tunnels.

The player is a government agent, sent secretly to the moon’s surface with the mission of deactivating the weapon before it becomes fully charged.

This is accomplished by destroying a power network in the form of ECD (Energy Collection Device) columns, dotted around the moon and connected with power lines all the way to the beam weapon.

A number of enemies exist in the game in the form of tanks or flying turrets. Nothing is hard to kill.
