Stellar Life Line

Stellar Life Line is a side scrolling shoot 'em up where the player's task is to escort a fleet of space ships from one star base to another. The game is similar to Defender with the player being able to move both back and forth and having a scanner showing the locations of ships and obstacles. There are three different obstacles (asteroids, magnetic mines and alien ships) that the player has to shoot down since any collision will lead to a loss of one of the fleet ship. The fleet ships are also destroyed when running out of fuel which happens as they are hit by enemy fire. Refueling is possible by maneuvering the player's ship over one of the ships in the fleet. Some attackers can attach itself to a fleet ship to do a sneak attack and steal the ship.
