    ? Special early adopter price. Get it now! ?

    While on a routine mission to test a number of prototype fighters destined to replace the Earth Colonial Fleet's aging Starhawk, the ECS Red Nova, your carrier, comes across an unknown alien fleet preparing to stage a sneak attack on the human colonies!

    In order to give the Red Nova a chance to escape and warn the rest of the fleet you have volunteered to attack the aliens head-on. With a choice of any of the fighters on deck, you have to use your wits, your guns, and your ample supply of homing missiles to survive for as long as you can!

    "You are the front line."

    If you're looking for a nice take on the Asteroids formula, don't hesitate to give Red Nova a look.

    Red Nova takes a risk by deviating from the standard twin-stick setup for survival shooters, but this polished product pulls it off almost perfectly, if not entirely intuitively; a great addition to the collection of any action fan.

    There's a lot to like about Red Nova; it sweats the little details, and whilst it may not last for long it's certainly good fun.

    Red Nova has some interesting ideas, but they don't always work out the way they should.
