Space Spirals Space Spirals is a mouse controlled shooting game, with some similarities to Missile Command.

The object of the game is to defend your space station from attacking aliens. The space station is at the center of the screen and you using the mouse to move a torpedo cursor around the screen. Press the mouse button and the station will fire a torpedo to that location where it will explode and take out any surrounding enemies. However, the torpedoes have to travel a bit before they get to their destination so the player has to take this into account when aiming at the moving enemies.

In each level a refueling ship flies toward the space station and the player has protect it from incoming enemies. Once at the center the ship docks with the space station and the player is rewarded with extra fuel. The levels have increasingly difficult enemy waves. The first 10 levels introduce all the enemy types and after that each level has combinations of enemies. [source:mobygames]
