Press any button to leave the demo mode. Now take a deep breath. You have five seconds to get ready for some of the fastest fun you've ever had.
The objective is to zoom up and down the center alley and blast aliens as they streak by. Keep shooting and keep moving to avoid a deadly collision with a speeding alien spacecraft.
Pressing up or down on your joypad moves your ship up and down the middle alley in the screen. Moving your joypad left and right turns your ship left and right to face, or travel, down the lanes. Your ship is always on rapid fire. Oodles of bullets can be on the screen at once so you can enjoy destroying more aliens, more often, than ever before!
You begin the game with five ships. If you can blast all of the aliens in a level, you'll receive a bonus ship. You can hold up to 6 ships at one time. Ships are destroyed by accidentally running into passing aliens.
Data Storm features a variety of speedy aliens which travel back and forth across the screen at their own unique paces. The faster they move, the more points they are worth. All aliens, except for the Prizes, must be shot while your ship is in the center alley.
