Nighthaw-X3000 is a dynamic shoot'em up game developed by the independent Polish studio N94 Games. We play as James Pilecki, an elite pilot whose job is to face the alien invaders who attacked Earth in the year 2000. Action in the game is presented from a top-down perspective. The plane we control automatically flies upwards. Our job is to maneuver in a way that will allow us to eliminate the aliens and avoid their fire. We have to be extremely agile and rely on our reflexes if we want to be victorious. The fact that the game itself is quite hard will also force us to use the entire range of available weapons if we want to succeed. Nighthaw-X3000's plot is accompanied by a couple of multiplayer game modes. The game's pace is turned up by the specially composed synthwave soundtrack. Associations with the 80's science fiction movies naturally come to mind due to Nighthaw-X3000's colorful pixel-art visuals.

We will also have to approach those battles in a more tactical manner and have enough firepower. Due to the fact that Nighthaw-X3000 has a rather high difficulty level, swapping between the weapons is required to achieve victory.
