The Bydo Empire has returned to Earth with a vengeance. This time, they will not accept defeat so easily. Earth however, is ready for them...

Three R-Class ships: the R-9, the R-13, and the prototype R-X, are your weapons in this war. Choose your ship according to your liking, blast off, and strike the Bydo Empire!
