Red Nova Episode 1: First Contact, the game at release, is an inertial survival shooter for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. Future episodes will be released as free updates to the game and will comprise different game modes and missions.
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!
