Red Moon was the third game made in the Armed with Wings series. It is focused on action, jumping, and combos . You play as Eivana on a mission with Hawkin to kill the King (Vandheer Lorde) on the night of the red moon.
The events of Red Moon are evidently set after the rebellion (and before Armed with Wings 1). Hawkin and Eivana, at the time still members of the court, plan to assassinate Vandheer on the night when the moon shines red, which strengthens their powers (as shown in the picture).Eivana must defeat the black creatures and soldiers and an elite guard of the King as well as use jumps and precision timing to Vandheer Lorde's location on Devil's Hill after he is defeated. In the end they confront Vandheer, who defeats them and is only stopped from killing them both when Network suddenly appears and keeps him occupied while Hawkin grabs Eivana and flees.
Players can jump and double jump, and there are two special attacks fueled by the power of the red moon. One is a wave of force that bowls over and pushes enemies over, continuing in a straight line for a few meters before dissipating. The second is similar to the Lightning Strike from Armed with Wings 3 and can only be performed in mid-jump. Unlike in the other games Eivana has the ability to duck but can't swing herself onto ledges like characters in Culmination and Armed with Wings 3. The music changes over time but sounds vaguely Arabic twisted with some styles of anicent Japanese music and some light funk elements and keyboard sound effects.

This game like Armed with Wings 1 and 2 doesn't feature the ledge climb and is the last game to not feature it.
There are some glitches where if the player lands on a platform the player may end up falling through it.
The Menu song is Airscape -r, another song is Sunrise Over Cairo, Show No Tears and .:Arabic Desert:. which can all be unlocked as bonuses during the game this is also the first game to feature that.
This game features achievements which can be saved if you are a user at Newgrounds.
In order to get the achievement orb hunter you don't have to collect every orb you encounter on all levels, there is a certain amount you need to collect which adds up to all the orbs, but the count goes to zero after a new game.
This is currently the only game featuring voice actors.
Also, in the cinematic found right in the beginning of the game, after Hawkin slapped Eivana in the face, he hinted that he and Eivana are secretly working for their master against Emperor Lorde . The name of the master whom they are working for is unknown. One possible interpretation of this is the master of Hawkin and Eivana is the Lone Warrior. Apparently, Vandheer Lorde does not know about this until Hawkin betrayed him in Armed With Wings 2
