Chris Selogy reports:
''The story of NovaStrike involves Human colonization of a particular planet as they eventually stumbled upon a mysterious device. When the device is activated, they find out that it's a portal to the Draelus home system, which immediately starts their invasion and now you must fight through their forces to destroy the portal to stop the invasion. You take control of the Scythe, a special ship that can acquire upgrades to its weapons by picking up parts left behind destroyed ships. Like most shooters, the story isn't the focus of the game at all, but the gameplay is.''
