Phaeton is a sci-fi arcade game. The action takes place in the 24th century, when a powerful terrorist organisation managed to create highly radioactive isotopes threatening humanity. The nuclear elements were placed in four abandoned locations, guarded by unmanned drone ships.
As a pilot of an experimental aircraft called Phaeton the player must infiltrate the terrorist territory and steal all the isotopes. Phaeton has two satellites spinning around the central unit to separate the human pilot from deadly radioactivity. The direction of satellite’s rotation may be changed limited times by pressing a button.
