Get ready to take on an intergalactic invasion in Red Barron, the modern take on classic shmup games like Galaga and Space Invaders! With its retro pixel graphics, CRT effect, and nostalgic soundtrack, Red Barron delivers an authentic 8-bit arcade experience.
As Red Barron or Red Hawk, you’ll pilot a fighter ship through waves of enemy attacks, dodging to avoid incoming fire while blasting your foes out of the sky. Upgrade your ship with power-ups and wreak havock.
The year is 2057, planet earth is breathing it’s last breath. Humanity achieved the impossible and colonized a planet in a distant star system. The planet, dubbed Arcadia, was rich in resources and held the promise of a new beginning for mankind.
However, their newfound home was not without challenges. The planet’s unique atmosphere and harsh climate made it difficult for humans to adapt, and it wasn’t long before they discovered that they were not alone on this planet.
Alien creatures, unlike anything they had ever seen, began to emerge from the depths of Arcadia. At first, the creatures were small and relatively harmless, but as the human settlements grew, so did the alien threat.
Soon, massive alien ships descended from the skies, unleashing swarms of alien fighters that attacked human outposts and threatened the fragile peace on Arcadia.
In response, the best pilots were recruited to fight back against the invaders. Two legendary figures, known throughout the galaxy for their unmatched skills and their unbreakable spirit. Red Barron and Red Hawk, the best of the best, entrusted with leading the fight against the alien attacks.
Red Barron was a seasoned veteran, with years of experience as a fighter pilot in the Earth Defense Force. He was known for his cool head under pressure, his lightning-fast reflexes, and his uncanny ability to outmaneuver even the most skilled enemy pilots.
Hawk, daughter of Barron, born on Arcadia, was a relative newcomer to the world of space combat. But what she lacked in experience, she made up for in raw talent and determination. She had a natural gift for flying and a fierce determination to protect her home planet at any cost.
Together, Red Barron and Red Hawk led the charge against the aliens, piloting their state-of-the-art spaceships and engaging in fierce dogfights in the depths of space.
Now, as the alien threat grows ever stronger, it is up to you, as one of these elite pilots, to take to the skies and fight wave after wave of aliens in a desperate bid to save the remaining humans on Arcadia from extinction. Will you be able to defeat the alien mother ship and secure the future of humanity on this new world? Only time will tell.
