Critical Mass The player controls a rocket-propelled hover craft with high speed strike attack capabilities. His mission is to travel east with all speed, to the power unit. During the early phases of the game he will only encounter alien long distance raiders and mines. But as he progresses through the zones, he will encounter increasingly hostile opposition including fused and guided mines. Once he has travelled through all of the zones the player finds the power plant. To enter, he has to disable the force field gates by shooting a turret. Once inside the plant, he must destroy by shooting the centre of the pyramid shaped energy concentrator in the middle of the device. The whole game is played against the clock.
