It is a 2D multiplayer game for four players, where each player controls two alien hands floating in space. The goal of the game is to have the maximum possible distance between the two hands at the end of the round. By grabbing one of the rotating planets players can shoot their hands across the screen, but the problem is that there can only be one hand at each planet at the same time, so let the grabbing begin!
