- A retro, colourful, low-poly visual style
- 6 main levels and 6 bonus levels currently (more than 12 will be available after full release)
- Major bosses at the end of each level, each piloted by a member of the Zodiac
- A 16-bit style soundtrack by +TEK combining FM and wavetable synthesis


This game plays best using an Xinput compatible analogue controller (Xbox, PS4 etc), however digital devices can be used too, such as a D-pad or keyboard (analogue is definitely the way to go, though!). The controls are also re-mappable.

System Requirements

The game should run on most systems, as long as your graphics card supports OpenGL 2.1

Please do not attempt to run this on a real SNES as it will melt.

Other Information

This game was created using the free and open-source Godot engine with some custom modifications.

great visuals and controls and some difficulty for people looking for a spiritual successor to starfox!

always great to have a demo!


Star Fox feeling... Will try sometime!


Such a fantastic game, plays very well on my M1 Mac Mini in 4K. Playing also on a PS5 controller, analogue controls are great too

space harrier (Clone) !


Does this include a steam key?


It does not say so on the store page :D


I was about to buy it on Steam but I just found out you are on Itch.io as well! I may rather go for this because DRM-free and you get a bigger cut.

However, I honestly hope updates will be the same between both versions and the Itch one won't be lagging behind!


Awesome :D


I've been waiting so long for this game thank you! :')
