This is a revival of the old Sparkster series which started with Rocket Knight Adventures on the Sega Genesis. The game starts out with Sparkster, a mouse, doing some farming in his yard when he spots large flying warships off in the distance. This sight causes him to run into his house and emerge with his armor, jetpack and sword. His wife and child wave farewell to him as he flies off to defend his homeland. When he arrives at the area that is being attacked he finds out it is being attacked by the wolves and this is where the game play begins."
