Nightstar: Rogue Wings is a modern tribute to old school action games such as Star Wars: Rogue Squadron and the Star Fox series. In what seems to be an endless sea of procedurally generated sci-fi games with little to no content that over promise and under deliver (some names comes to mind), Nightstar: Rogue Wings shines as a hand-crafted single player experience with incredibly satisfying combat mechanics.

This is one of the special moves in this game, and it works really well to dodge enemy fire, specially the gigantic lasers shot by the hover-tanks.



This is the second game created by Bruno Gruber. The first one is also available on Steam, and it's a Virtual Reality game that takes place in the same universe as Rogue Wings. With 100% positive reviews, it's hard not to get curious about it
