Since time immemorial, Earth has always been protected by a group of powerful young girls known collectively as Magikos. From their first sightings in the late 1990s, millions have repeatedly been amazed as previously bed-ridden maidens defeated performed superhuman feats in order to beat back various invaders, besting both human dictators and horrible aliens. With the Magikos as their spear, humanity lunged forward and began to expand within the solar system and beyond.
However, Magiko powers often proved to be not quite as reliable as they liked, often cutting-out at the wrong times and leaving the girls once again absolutely helpless. And with new threats being discovered in neighboring star systems and the constantly growing danger of new enemies from both within and without man's domain, a more reliable form of defense and offense was needed.
And so was born the NeoMagiko project, an attempt to create a more reliable form of Magiko using robotic parts. For decades, reputable roboticists and scienticians, including the famous Lazerus, have worked together in the confines of an old facility in the rings of Saturn to create the first prototype. Now, that prototype, dubbed Neoxis (from Ancient Greek for "girl" and the word "nexus") has been finished and is ready to undergo field testing.
Fly around in space, using your weapons to destroy enemies. Sounds simple, right?
However, you can't actually directly control your movement; instead, you must propel yourself using your weapons. After all, every force has an equal and opposite force, including recoil.
Images can't show motion too well, but trust me, she's definitely somewhere else after this shot.
On top of that, since this is all a test, the researchers back at the lab are itching to see all their latest weapons being used on the field. Therefore, you'll be forced to change your weapon
every so often. The timer at the top of the screen tells you how long you have until the next switch, as well as what the next weapon will be.
The base has a shield, but it only lasts a short time after each hit.
The goal is to simply defend the base at the center of the screen for as long as possible. Though you yourself can respawn as many times as necessary as long as that base has health left, you
won't last long without it.
On top of that, if you fulfill certain circumstances, you just might be able to unleash Neoxis's true Magiko powers!
