Take command of AEGIS and fight for the survival of mankind in this action-packed 360 degree defensive arcade survival shooter!

  • DEFEND MANKIND - Intense arcade fun with skill-focused defensive combat!
  • BIG BULLETS - Manage energy levels and use your cannon to annihilate incoming ships!
  • BIGGER BULLETS - Charge your cannon shots for unlimited power!
  • BE THE BEST - Compete on the global leaderboards for best time! How far can you make it?!
  • STYLE - Neon-cyberpunk-arcade visuals driven by a pumpin' 80's style synthwave soundtrack!


The year is 2186, an endless fleet of alien warships approach and they intend to completely destroy Earth. Our only defence against this enemy and the threat of annihilation - is Aegis.

10 years ago, in a flash of blinding light and energy; our dimension and the dimension of a very powerful and advanced alien civilization seemed to collide into one. They now inhabit many sectors of space all around us and colossal ships of pure energy have been detected passing through our system. Out of fear we ignored communications and chose instead to begin building an appropriate advanced defensive technology - Project Aegis.

Project Aegis was simple, transform the moon into a defensive weapon of unlimited power and capability. For a whole decade we focused on this task as a people, to turn our moon into a colossal cannon that can be seen from the surface of Earth. We were warned to stop construction of Aegis multiple times, we did not.

Our detection systems are picking up a lot of ships incoming... big ones... and more than we could have ever imagined. Some say that they are coming because Aegis is too dangerous to exist... I think we better hope that's true.

Construction of AEGIS is complete and it is our only hope now. We are completely surrounded with the first ships about to enter combat ranges. You are our highest ranking AEGIS Operator and thus you will command AEGIS itself. Your training is over, and time is not on our side. Good luck - Commander.


Thanks for checking out AEGIS 2186!
