In the game Air Fortress (Buy on eBay), the people of Planet Farmel have developed a Lightship which can travel to other galaxies. While the Space Frontier Exploration Fleets are scouting the Yubbert Galaxy, they discover a group of eight space fortresses which survive by destroying and feeding on civilizations. These fortresses are on the way to Farmel and it is up to the hero Hal Bailman to save the planet from destruction.
Each of the Air Fortress battles has two parts. The Air Base section is a side-scrolling shooter where the player has to dodge or destroy enemies to get to an air lock. This leads to the Air Fortress section, which is an adventure game where the player must reach and destroy the Central Reactor.
