Alphaman takes place in 20XX. Since android AI now has the capacity to serve humanity. Replacing dangerous, servantile, and repetitive jobs. The world is also at peace. At least until a group of underground hackers get involved. So now, the group known as the Red Bombers release a berserker virus. Now in the general population of Personal Androids. Including user modified models intended for arena battles.
As a result, it’s up to Alpha. The first android Alphaman designed with the sole purpose of fighting. And hopefully stop these infected bots and take down the Red Bombers.
You will control Alpha through seven handcrafted stages. Plus a final boss stage. While pick up boss weapons and upgrades along the way. The cute operator will provide intel before each mission. While giving some back story to each stage. Action only fans need not worry, you can skip each dialogue in game.
