Cosmos Description

Cosmos is a classic vertical shoot-em-up game set in space, similar to the popular game Astro Blaster by Sega/Gremlin. The objective of the game is to shoot down waves of alien vessels, comets, and missiles that appear on the screen while avoiding their attacks. Players control a spaceship that can move left and right across the bottom of the screen and shoot back at the enemies.

Each wave can be completed by either shooting a certain number of ships or surviving for a fixed amount of time. There are seven zones in total, each with the same order of alien attacking waves but increasing in difficulty due to the speed and number of missiles launched by the enemies.

With its simple yet challenging gameplay, Cosmos is a fun and addictive game that will keep players engaged as they try to beat their high scores and progress through each level. Controls: Press 5 to insert credits or coins, 1 to select, arrow keys for movement, and Alt or Ctrl for actions. Enjoy the game on Classic Reload!

In addition to avoiding collisions, you must also watch your fuel which your ship is constantly using. If it runs low, fuel can be replenished by shooting all of the aliens in the current wave, after which you have the opportunity to dock with a refueling vessel. Bonus fuel may also be awarded by shooting capsules during the comet rounds.

Each shot that you make also heats up your weapon. If you don't allow enough time between shots, your blaster becomes too hot, and it will cease to function until it cools down. Finally, you have a warp speed option which will effectively slow down the motion of your opponents for a short period of time. Digitized voices announce when your gun is getting too hot, you are low on fuel, or when your warp mode is about to run out.
