Defend the Fawkin Station is a game which features hectic twitch style game-play. Some strategic elements are added into the mix so the game can be tailored to the player's play style. The game is based on a simple idea: you are the commander of a station which orbits a planet by means of an orbital ring. Your mission is to defend the station (and the helpless people on the planet below) from an invasion fleet.
The progression of the game will happen through stages, each featuring new challenges, tougher and smarter enemies, and unique boss fights. By acquiring tech left behind by the enemies you destroy, you will be able to upgrade the stations systems and defenses. The ability to construct and upgrade several defensive units, to aid you in your mission, can also be unlocked through the acquisition of alien tech.
