This is a Space Invaders variant with a twist. Eight robots with laser cannons and protected by a shield wall are advancing in the player's sector, and with his laser cannon he has to destroy them.

In the Down Hill event, the winner is the player to achieve the...

The game can be played using the electronic dice in game or using hand dice.
