Up In The Sky! – It’s An Excellent Enemy Starfighter Trailer

By Nathan Grayson on April 1st, 2014.

Until mankind has explored and shot all of space in the face, we cannot - will not - be satisfied.

It is the year 2014, and somehow on our wobbly stacks of gamerly plates we have more space games than we know what to do with. I refuse to look this (largely crowdfunded) gift horse-shaped starship in the terribly located exhaust port that resembles a mouth. That said, many of said spacefarers – Star Citizen, Elite Dangerous, Limit Theory, etc – are shooting for the stars with massive Do Everything Be Everything universes, and there’s something to be said for focus. That’s what the brilliant-looking Enemy Starfighter offers in spades. Each level sees you pre-plan your leap into a system from a top-down strategic map and then execute it from the cockpit with squad in tow. It’s a magnificently svelte concept, and there’s a new trailer of it in action below.

Showing Some Love To Enemy Starfighter

By Craig Pearson on October 22nd, 2013.


A thing that always irked me is the “No love for XXXXXX XXXXX?” comments on articles. I write a thing, look at the comments for people to point out how handsome I am (and my many, many flubs), but what do I see? Someone arrogantly proposing to understand my emotional framework. Ooh, it hurts me feelings it does. So I’m going to propose a new way of doing it. Instead of viciously prodding at a hole in my knowledge and demanding emotional resonance, you should instead write: “That is a game that reminds me of XXXXXXX XXXXXXX, and I’d love you all to know about it.” And I will respond with a fist-bump. And, yes, I did discover Enemy Starfighter in such a comment. Oh alright. Do what you want, but take a look at the latest videos of the Mike Tipul’s fabulous looking space combat game, because I imagine there’s love in your heart for it.

Enemy Starfighter Is A Friend To Fans Of Space, Roguelikes

By Nathan Grayson on December 14th, 2012.

DANGER ZONE.

Someday, I would like to meet a friendly starfighter. We’d go on adventures together, support each other through tough times, and buy each other presents occasionally - just because. Without a doubt, he’d be the friendliest starfighter in all the land. But today is not that day. No, right now, we’re dealing with Enemy Starfighter, and this one’s quite a menacing, conniving fellow indeed. Planning’s the name of the game – or it would be, if it wasn’t Enemy Starfighter – and a randomized single-player campaign with loot and harsh death conditions adds roguelike flair to the proceedings. See it in action after the break.
