Storm Arrows is a clone of the arcade game Targ. Spectral Associates, which published the game, had a game writing contest in 1982 (It was supposed to be annual, but it only ran once). The top 3 winners got cash prizes, and their game published under contract with Spectral. Storm Arrows was the 2nd place winner, netting the author $500 and the publication contract.
The game itself involves steering your ship amongst blocks, and shooting several kinds of alien ships that you can collide with. There are also mines that they lay, and you have to keep track of your shots... you can run out (although yellow circles occasionally show up that replenish your supply somewhat).
