Red Falcon had devoured a portion of this planet and now the vile Black Viper has come from deep space for seconds. But he hasn't come alone. Viper's transported a battalion of battletron tanks, stealth subs, laser cannons, and annihilating androids. And he's seized a secret naval lab to develop a new breed of supreme alien being. So Scorpion stands alone against biological experiments gone bad like towering tarantulas and venomous vesty files. His mission: level the lab before Biper transforms earth into an alien nation.

But it will take more than sheer firepower to survive five new lethal levels of naval ports, forests, caverns and a laboratory filled with genetic mutants. You're got a snowball's chance in Haiti of making it!

Of course, that's the way Scorpion likes it!
