The game story

In the year 2777, the earth existed in a totally different atmosphere. Due to
nuclear wars and natural disasters, the population decreased dramatically and
only five small islands existed on the surface of the earth. Those five
islands formed a nation and for hundreds of years people lived peacefully. The
new nation is called XEXYZ. At XEXYZ, aside from human beings, there exist
fairies and spirits who lived under the ruling of King Xeu Star. But one day,
XEXYZ was attacked by the mechanic fortress, GORUZA, from outer space. XEXYZ
did not have many weapons to fight back and was forced to surrender. GORUZA
built mechanic castles on each island, captured a queen from each island and
confined them. King Xeu Star was murdered and his only daughter, Maria Star,
has been missing since then. Battle-soldier Apollo could not endure the cruel
treatment of GORUZA any longer. So he put on his space battle suit and
challenged the mechanic beasts' empire!
