Bombs Away is an overhead scrolling fighter game. You'll pilot a plane that has ten health bars. Beware not to get hit by other planes or you will lose health very quickly. Use your mouse button to shoot and keep it held down for constant rapid fire. Use W,A,S,D or arrow keys to move and use the space bar to drop bombs. As you hit the end of each mission the enemies come faster and more frequently, so beware and use your bombs and power-ups to destroy them. Some power-ups will send out an energy pulse that destroys all enemies near you, while others increase fire power.
