There is trouble brewing in the far-off Valdi System. An evil alien named Greedy has corrupted the leaders of the seven planets in the system and enslaved the people who live there. The citizens make a desperate plea for a legendary hero to come save them from their fate. The call is answered by Ristar, the son of the hero. Ristar may not be the most powerful hero in the galaxy, but he has one unique weapon: his extendable arms. By stretching out these limbs, Ristar can grab onto ladders to climb, poles to swing on, and even enemies to bash with a mighty head butt. With this great ability and his courage, Ristar is one star that will shine bright.
