Cosmic Hunter is a science fiction shooter set in space, possibly an asteroid field. The player is represented by a single pixel onscreen, and must hunt an enemy character, also represented by a single pixel, through a field of obstacles. The obstacles do not hurt either character, and only impede movement. The game features basic movement and fire controls, however, attacking the enemy character must be done in close proximity--with no more than one pixel between the player character and the enemy. There are two difficulty settings with different maps, and pressing the Skill/Score button at any time will show the number of remaining players characters.

Though the box contains a note that the game is "For 1 or More Players," there is no distinct 2-player mode, and multiplayer games are presumably played taking turns whenever players choose. [source:mobygames]
