The objective in Starship Fight is simple: in every zone, destroy all the ground structures (represented by blue squares) to advance to the next; fail by missing too many targets, and you have to repeat the level. Every enemy destroyed will leave green dots (called Chips) to collect for more firepower and energy. There are two types of fire: wide but slow (use CTRL or the space bar), or narrow but faster (use ALT), good for destroying lines of enemies or structures quickly. The number of targets to destroy increases level after level, and experienced players will have fun in trying to destroy that last target that forced them to repeat the level. It's one of those games that furnishes a one-more-try syndrome ;) |
In addition to the fun simplicity of the gameplay, there's a great retro look: Starship Fight looks and even sounds like an old game from some 8-bit console – I wouldn't be surprised if the music was ripped from some NES game. Overall, a little shooting gem, if you don't mind the (purposely) outdated graphics.
