“If you're looking for a real challenge, live up to your skills that made your success in the arcade at the time, or just want to improve your reflexes, do not hesitate.”
Game Guide

“It's worth giving it a try just to give to the term "video game" its original meaning: entertainment without thoughts.”
7/10 – GamesArk

“Nighthaw-X 3000 is a fun shmup that oozes with its own aesthetics from stage to stage.”

About This Game

Nighthaw-X3000 is a true time machine that will take you straight back to the 80s. Overexposed, neon colors, testosterone-loaded badass, great, synthwave soundtrack and that specific vibe that in the past was exclusive to classic arcade cabinets.

Your name is James Pilecki and you have one-liner for every occasion. You are an elite pilot with… some issues. You are dangerous, you have explosive personality. Some says that you are just crazy. They can be right, you were disciplinary suspended after all. However, they also know that you are the best. Several days ago, aliens attacked earth. You were brought back to service. Your old friend, Nighthaw-X3000 is waiting for you, refueled and ready to launch. It is time for war James.

Hop into the Nighthaw-X3000 and deal with the army of vicious aliens. There is only one rule – shoot everything on sight. Face the story mode – 8 missions, filled with enemies and murderous threats. You will die. A lot.

Beat the story mode and try additional game modes:
  • Score Attack – break through the endless waves of enemies and compete with other players via online scoreboards.
  • Boss Rush – now you have a chance to take a revenge on those, who pissed you off the most in story mode. Can you beat them all without respite?
  • Extreme mode – the question is, do you have enough balls to even try?

Don’t forget – when you get tired of doing it all alone just call your bro and grab some beer because Nighthaw-X3000 supports couch co-op in all available game modes.
