Players are aliens who must evade farmers, government agents, and paparazzi while cleaning up after 50 years of covert research missions, and all the while continue their never-ending quest for cows, which provide the energy for their bovine-powered UFOs.

Be careful not to cow-nap any mad cows, however. Mad cows are bad.

Someone had to do it. (write this game, in the 1990s).

Game's installer creates a trivial/suspect/unnecessary Extension in the System Folder named "Display Library" u can erase from OS9 and Classic for sure. The antipiracy appears pleasantly weak: only 1 hidden prefs file within the game's folder.

On my ultrafast native hardware, the controls and animation are sluggish and there's snap crackle and pop in the soundplay, but it works well overall (feels like playing a 'Flash' engine). Rather, the intentional faithfulness adhering to the lore that antigrav saucers truly are ungainly to steer, everybody knows that. Deciding whether to give it 3 stars or 4, the exceptional polish and cohesion and classic material make it a 4.
