The Chronites love timebombs are Earth space stations need defending!

Due to a time disruption field, you can't drop out of warp next to the time bomb.
You have to fly carefully and reach the bomb within 180 seconds to diffuse it.
Shoot Chronites and watch out for Chronite boss aliens that are hard to destroy.

Time ramps are available that you can thrust over and activate your force field.
Blocker aliens are indestructible but also have no intelligence. Watch out for
lightening. Read the hints below and watch the video on how to avoid these threats.
