While travelling peacefully through deep space, the mothership Arkanoid was attacked without warning by a space fighter of unknown origin.

Survivors of the incident attempted to flee in a "Vaus" escape pod.

But as soon as it was launched, the Vaus was sucked into a bizarre alternate dimension populated by colored bricks and roaming creatures.

Now you must manoeuver the Vaus as its survival depends on an energy ball that destroys bricks on contact.

Can you survive long enough to discover who is behind this madness. ?
