Project: Starfighter is a space shooting game to liberate the universe from the evil company WEAPCO. A free and open source game


In the year 2579, the intergalactic weapons corporation, WEAPCO, has dominated the galaxy. Guide Chris Bainfield and his friend Sid Wilson on their quest to liberate the galaxy from the clutches of WEAPCO. Along the way, you will encounter new foes, make new allies, and assist local rebels in strikes against the evil corporation.

Originally developed by Parallel Realities in 2003, Project: Starfighter is a side-scrolling shoot ’em up space game, released under the GNU GPL. Consisting of 26 engaging levels spanning four planetary systems, this classic game will entertain for hours.

The game Project: Starfighter replaced images, sound effects and music that were not properly licensed. So in this version of the game, these art materials are replaced with free art materials.

There are several other improvements in the game Project: Starfighter compared to the original version:

  • Difficulty levels: Choose from several difficulty levels ranging from easy to virtually impossible;
  • Better camera handling: The camera no longer exerts a mysterious force which slows down your movement, and it no longer boxes you into an arbitrary rectangle in autoscrolling levels. Additionally, if you’re not moving, it now centers on your ship;
  • Improved balance: Certain changes have been made to balance the weapons much better. Most significantly, the overpowered Charge Cannon has been slightly nerfed and made harder to use, making it less of a must-have than it previously was (but still very powerful);
  • Classic Difficulty: Want the original experience? A difficulty level called “Classic” is also available, which imitates the experience of the original Project: Starfighter nearly identically;
  • Defined character traits: The characters in the original Project: Starfighter were pretty much perpetually sullen and angry. Now, each character has a defined personality which is expressed both in the things they say and in their character portraits.
