Your task is to fly down the river and shoot at fuel depots, helicopters, tankers, jets, and bridges. You gain points each time you destroy a structure or vehicle. Different enemy vehicles and structures have different difficulty levels, and you can earn more points by shooting difficult items. The gameplay does not offer enemy fire, but the game does end if you crash into enemy vehicles, structures, or the river bank. You can use the controller to move left and right, and the up and down joystick controls or the up and down buttons on a button controller let you move your jet either faster or slower. You must pay attention to your fuel supply throughout the game. If you do not regularly refuel your jet, the game will end, and you must start again.
