This game does not want to compete with big scope space exploration games and is rather focused on short & fun sessions embedded in an entertaining story!Controls :
- W, A, S, D keys to move
- Arrow keys to shoot
- Space to select/continue
or Controller (Xbox)or Custum Controls!Inspiration:
I loved playing Buck Rogers
, Whale's Voyage
and Star Flight 2
on my Amiga 500 and i would never even think about trying to copy the complexity of these titles with the limited resources i have. Starflight succeeds largely because the exploration mechanic works so well.
One thing i had in mind though while playing was the wish to explore ships and locations a bit more as i could. I loved finding ancient ruins. The game i have in mind won't get anything near the exploration possibilities of these games but it is definitely an inspiration. Credits&tools:
