    Once, there was peace in the Galaxy.

    Grim Squidge changed all that. The mad, intergalactic goblin escaped from the insane asylum on Centaurus IV and is now loose. Using his fiendish talents of invention, he created a spaceship to suck all the stars out of the Galaxy and trap them in crystal globes. And he did it, too! He then scattered the globes throughout a number of nearby worlds. Now, the whole Galaxy is threatened by a horrible Cosmic Void which will happen son if the stars aren't returned to their proper place.Enter Tinhead, Defender of the Edge of the Galaxy! Our friendly little metal-head just happened to be nearby in his remote space station when the nasty Squidge cruised by. Hearing the stars' cry for help. he know he's the only one who can save the Galaxy by stopping Grim Squidge's diabolical plan. Packing his trusty Bounce Blaster and with the aid of any add-on vehicles he may find, Tinhead must overcome the pesky creatures on four weird worlds. By collecting the stars and defeating the crazed goblin, he can restore order to the Galaxy.
