Five awesome aliens have been unleashed from the darkest corner of the galaxy - and they're out to destroy the universe.

Only Cosmo, a young boy from planet Earth, has the power to stop them. Recruited by the elite defence organisation
G-Watch to defend the galaxy, Cosmo must prove himself and commence battle against the deadliest aliens in space . . .

In their third mission, Cosmo and Nuri journey into Deep Space . . . The hideous arachnid alien Zillah is terrorising the galaxy's main trade route - and has built a deadly lair in the perilous Tarn Asteroid Belt. Has Cosmo got what it takes to navigate his way through the treacherous asteroid maze and defeat Zillah?

Nayuleska's thoughts
I don't mind spiders, but Zillah scared me because she was so fast and almost always was a step ahead of Cosmo. I was really scared for Cosmo and Nuri in this 10/10 third adventure. 

You can find out more about the series on Max's website.
