Chromium B.S.U. is a fast paced, arcade-style, top-scrolling space shooter.

You are captain of the cargo ship Chromium B.S.U., responsible for delivering supplies to our troops on the front line. Your ship has a small fleet of robotic fighters which you control from the relative safety of the Chromium vessel.

Your Mission:

� Do not let ANY enemy ships get past your fighters! Each enemy ship that makes it past the bottom of the screen will attack the Chromium, and you lose a fighter.
� Use your fighters as weapons! Crash into enemies to destroy them before they can get past you.
� Strategic suicide is a powerful tactic! When the Chromium launches a new fighter, it releases a high energy burst which destroys all enemies in range.
� Self-destruct to preserve your ammunition! A double-right-click will cause your current fighter to self-destruct. Before the ship blows up, it ejects its ammunition so that the next fighter can pick it up.

Ammunition:

MACHINE GUN

Otherwise known as the 'pea shooter'. But you'll miss 'em when they're gone.

ION CANNON

This gun slices through your enemies and keeps on going.

PLASMA REPEATER

Your most powerful weapon. The plasma ammunition runs out quickly, however.

Items:

BIG RED BUTTON

The ultimate weapon. Double right-click or press the '0' key twice to eject the fighter's ammunition and self-destruct.

Power ups:

SHIELD REPLENISH

The penguin protects you. Grab this power up to restore shields to 100%.
Let it pass through for big points.

DAMAGE REPAIR

The penguin gives you life. Grab this power up to repair all damage to your fighter.
Let it pass through for big points.

SUPER SHIELDS / EXTRA LIFE

Restores shields to 100% and gives you temporary invulnerability.
TIP: If you let it pass through the bottom of the screen, you will be rewarded with an extra fighter.
