Aerial Attack is a simple space shoot-em-up, where multiple ships slowly come down at you firing away, and you have to kill them first. There is a nice graphical detail that a part of the alien ship will change when it is about to fire, so you can use that to shoot at them from a very close range with less risk. You are allowed 4 of your own shots at once on the screen. Every so often (not sure if based on points or number of aliens left), but they will suddenly change shape, so that you have different aliens to contend with, and then the mother ship, where you have to take out the black lines on the bottom.
