Cosmic Cosmiads Cosmic Cosmiads is a shoot 'em up in the vain of Galaga. The player controls a tank at the bottom of the screen which can move left, right and fire. The Cosmiads fly at the top of the screen and have to be shot down. Once in a while one of the Cosmiads will dive down shooting at the player. The player earns points for shooting the Cosmiads and triple as much while they are diving. Once all Cosmiads are dead a huge Zylon will appear and move down the screen Space Invaders style. The Zylon opens and closes its mouth continuously and if the player manages to fire inside it, it dies.

One twist in this game is the inclusion of fuel. Shooting costs fuel, so if the player misses too often the fuel will run out and the game is over. When the Zylon is dead the tank is refueled and a new wave of Cosmiads appears. The goal is to score as much points as possible. [source:mobygames]
