Work in progress Star Fox-inspired shooter by Ben Hickling.

Since I doubt Nintendo will ever do another Star Fox game after the failure of Star Fox Zero, this will make up for it nicely. :)

Looks like a complete rip-off. Like I get that it's supposed to be a homage, but most of those assets and levels looked like they were ripped straight off the SNES game.

Unless there's more depth to the gameplay, though, I don't think that's gonna be much of a big deal. Star Fox is what it is in large part thanks to its memorable cast, not just the on-rail shooting stuff. Then again, I'm pretty sure Nintendo will make another game in the series at some point, the only thing we can't know is whether it'll be good.



I just tried the demo, and it's pretty good. I really like the stage 1 boss. :)



Some games work going back to an older faux 3D style like an arcade racer but something like this? Nah, man. Somone remake the unfinished Geist Force. That looked like a sleeker cooler Star-Fox with a cool physics engine.

What OP posted looks less SNES and more Jaguar or 3D0

Don't you DARE bring those abominations in.

Of course it looks less SNES, because it doesn't have the frame rate issues the old Star Fox had.

Looks good. So fast and smooth. Like mZuzek said, it looks really same-ee from a visual design standpoint. I suppose though, if one is trying to build a game like Starfox, and also limit the games graphics to what was available with the super fx chip, it may be difficult to make a game that looks much different from the material it's drawing inspiration from.

And it'd be the closest we'd get to a remastering of the original Star Fox.



I'm gonna wait to see how long it's allowed to live before Nintendo goes in and shuts it down.

Not talking FPS. Just the visuals alone look very much like a game rendered on Jaguar/3D0. Gameplay of Starfox but the visuals of a purple Cybermorph
