The Story (Yes, this game is intellectual !)

  In an another dimension exists an incredible World: BRICKANIA
  The only thing we know today about this parallax World is its main 

  We use to call it : THE BRICK

  Some Bad Monsters Came from this World to Make the Earth a big Wall !

  So, We, the Earthlings, decided to Destroy this Atmospherical Wall.

  The X-PAD 01 ship was especially designed for "Space Bricks Breaking"

  But this is too dangerous to put a human in the ship so we employed
  the Best Computer Player, You, to "Virtually" command the Ship.

  The X-PAD 01 uses a new Weapon type called X-Ball but don't let the X-ball
  Bounding on earth, we have only 3 negate-X-Ball missiles to protect Earth !

  We will send you some Ship-features to help you but be carreful,
  the Brickanians will send you Computer Viruses !

  There will be ugly Brickanian's Monsters and be carefull when you will
  reach the outer space regions :

             the very big & violent WormTro'll wait you !

             GOOD LUCK !
