It is March 1954. A few days ago, the United States detonated a hydrogen bomb at Bikini Atoll, inadvertently disabling an ancient alien artifact which generated a force field protecting the entire planet.
Now, alien spaceships are landing all over the world!
The tanks and jets of Earth’s military forces are of little use against energy shields and death rays, but a few experimental programs have developed primitive spaceships capable of teleporting Earth’s population to a secret underground refuge in which they can hide until Earth’s scientists can scavenge sufficient alien technology to defend them.
In Venus Needs Men! you can play one of the five alien worlds, each with unique abilities, attempting to abduct or destroy Earth’s population while preventing the other players from doing the same. Or you can play Earth trying to fend off the aliens while getting your population to safety!
