Author's comments and explanations:
Scion, a simple, but odd shooter from 1985, published by Sony for the MSX.

Odd, because of the game rules and other things:

With these things as a given, I optimize the place where the white ship-attachment thingie appears (with luck manipulation) and follow an optimized route to hit all ground targets. As the player's ship moves very slow, it does not make sense to move too much downwards (the scrolling is almost as fast), moving upwards is a lot faster; although some cases are worth it. At the end of a scene it is of course best to be as high as possible (you can't fly the bombing cursor out of the screen, though).

Anyway, enjoy this run of this unusual and badly known game.
