''Air Fortress'' is a game released in Japan in 1987 by HAL Laboratories, today best known for ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' and ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' It came to American shores in 1989. Its basic plot will remind you of the ends of some of the ''Franchise/StarWars'' films: The planet Farmel finds itself threatened by [[DiabolusExNihilo eight mysterious Air Fortresses]] (something of a misnomer, as they're attacking from space). The Federation of Intergalactic Powers has thrown all their defenses at the Fortress to no avail. Now, it's been decided that ''one man'', Hal Bailman, will attempt to infiltrate and blow up the Fortresses from the inside.
