Laydock is a shoot 'em up developed and published by T&E Soft for MSX, FM-7, and Sharp MZ.
In Laydock players control a space ship that must avoid or destroy enemies in vertical scrolling stages. There are boss encounters at the end of each stage that take place on a single static screen.
The game allows to players to play simultaneous. While both players can control their own ship, they can also connect either side by side or stacked on top of one another vertically. While players are connected one player will control the movement while the other controls the shooting.
