About This Game

Mysterious aliens have invaded the Earth-like planet of Corliss, slowly draining the planet's resources.

Take control of the prototype Axelay ship and use its wide range of advanced weaponry to battle enemy forces. Play through multiple stages of action - from other planets to space stations - all on your way to destroying the alien headquarters.

You are Corliss' last line of defense, so be careful not to be too distracted by the excellent graphics (including great scrolling effects) and rocking music. Pilot the Axelay using Konami's famously tight play control and experience what many consider to be a classic of the shooter genre.
