Project: Starfighter

Moby ID: 9529
Windows Specs


In the future, after decades of war, the Weapco corporation, using its superior weaponry and AI driven craft, defeats both warring factions and becomes the most powerful force in the galaxy. You must take on the role of rebel pilot Chris who is attempting to overthrow the corporation.

There are 4 solar systems containing several planets, where each planet represents a mission. Missions can be selected in any order. When travelling from one planet to another random encounters are possible. When all available Missions of a system are finished a boss mission appears. After that the player enters a new solar system. Between missions you can upgrade your ship and communicate with your allies who inform you of the tasks that must be completed.

During a mission the player controls a space craft and can head in all 4 directions freely, trying to destroy enemy fighters or collecting items (escape pods, money, upgrades) left behind by destroyed enemies. In some missions computer controlled allies are fighting along.

The Game is open source and based on libSDL.
