Or by shooting all the enemy ships that protect the mothership.

Phase Four is the final phase in the loop, you must dock your ship.
You must not hit any other ship, but can hit flags for extra points
To dock succsessfully you must guide your ship onto the crossfire at the end.
Phase Four - Success, fireworks, and starting again. No lives left ? Then its GAME OVER
If you manage to dock, then then game repeats but much harder & faster.
If you run out of lives, then its the usual greeting message!

This game, like many other people was part of my childhood, I spent many hours every year in a games room, in a caravan park in South Wales. Although to the annoyance of the camp manager, we were able to use the spin the 2p into the money slot to gain a credit instead of paying the 10p required.
I am seeking this arcade in either cocktail or upright or just the pcb
If you can oblige please email me!
