The following is from the Arcade Museum:
The game begins at the base of the mountain pass leading to Satan’s Hollow. Players control a combination cannon-bridge-builder, which moves horizontally across the bottom of the screen by means of a Tron-like joystick. The object of the first screen is to build a bridge across the fiery river leading through to Satan’s Hollow, to do battle with Satan himself. Your ultimate foe will not let you through without a fight so he has sent out formations of demonic gargoyles to bar the way.
During most of the game, you battle green gargoyles and build a bridge over a river of fire, which you then attempt to cross over. The gargoyles will dive at you and attack with fireballs and explosive eggs. When you shoot a gargoyle, a piece of bridge will appear. Grab it and carry it to the river of fire to slowly build your bridge. Watch out, as the occasional gargoyle will try to capture one of your spare cannons! Shoot it before it gets away to win the cannon back.
As you defeat waves of enemies, flags will be placed on the castle. They will come into play when you face Satan.
Sometimes, after you destroy all the gargoyles, you will be confronted by either Lucifer, Old Nick or Beelzebub and each of them will breathe streams of fire at you.
After you have completed the bridge and crossed over it, you will be face to face Satan who will throw deadly tridents at you which your shield cannot block. After you have defeated Satan, you will get a bonus score based on the flags on the castle, and the game will begin again with increased difficulty.
