Mysterious aliens have invaded the Earth-like planet of Corliss, slowly draining the planet’s resources. Take control of the prototype Axelay ship and utilize its wide range of advanced weaponry to battle the enemy forces. Play through multiple stages of action ranging from other planets to space stations, all on your way to destroying the alien headquarters. Be careful not to be too distracted by the excellent graphics (including great scrolling effects) or rocking music, though; you’re Corliss’s last line of defense! Pilot the Axelay using Konami’s famously tight play control and experience what many consider a classic of the shooter genre!
