Atlantis Sky Patrol - Doom-Eliminating Marble -Popping Arcade
The rules sound very much like plot of Hollywood blockbuster. An impending doom is threatening a globe. More than 100 doomsday devices are discovered; and only Sky Patrol can disable these Atlantis mechanisms. You are a member of Sky Patrol, so your task is to neutralize devastating devices.
The devices are made of a moving defense mechanism and a fixed control part. You purpose is to disable a device.
In order to complete this mission, you are to shoot lines of multicolored balls moving towards the exit. Move your spaceship and shoot a ball trying to match it with the balls of the same color in the moving mechanism until the line reaches the exit.
Once you succeed, you have to disable static orbs (control parts of mechanism) to make it stop working.
Shoot static orbs with the balls of the same color.
As you proceed through levels, protective doors that open and close are added making your task more complicated.
When the device is disabled, get ready to catch the parts dropped by the machine. Mind that the devices are getting more complex through the game.
