Starfighter Origins (XONE)

Simulation 2018

A combat simulator which places the player in control of a starfighter. Developed by an independent British team - Mad About Games Studios Ltd., the game was inspired by space simulators from the 90s. Starfighter Origins is set in a futuristic world, where humans explore space and pirates are waiting among asteroids for unarmed transport ships and other easy loot. The player assumes the role of a pilot working for the Colonial Defense Force - a law enforcement group that use various kinds of combat ships in order to maintain order in space.

Eliminating the enemies involves use of both rapid-fire cannons and auto-targeting missiles.

The game delivers exclusively a single-player experience. The four modes available include the story campaign, the Simulation and the Challenge modes (a series of independent scenarios), and the Instant Action mode. The last of these requires the player to choose a difficulty level at the beginning; both the battlefield and type of enemies are assigned randomly.
