Key points

Game is fully stable compared to the rest of the documented arcade games that KraiSoft has made in the wiki, no bugs so far have been seen, while some may consider the part where a cannon from a boss is still firing after being destroyed (which can be seen in Mission 9 for example) a bug, this is most likely an intended mechanic to still make the boss difficult to take down, and there's a video showing how to beat it without dying.

Alien Sky is a singleplayer top-down view arcade game.
