spacewing war

Inspired by the classics that burst onto the scene back in the handheld glory days, Spacewing War sees chaos begin to erupt on PC and console. 

Available to purchase and download today, whether you be a galactic roaming champion on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch or PC, Spacewing War is the latest to emerge from the Eastasiasoft squad, after being created by those at Pheuma Games. 

It’s a side-scrolling shoot ’em up, much like you would have played back in the day on your handheld devices; something that has utterly inspired this experience. Running just a 4-tone pixel style but full of action, you’ll be tasked with heading out into the universe in order to try and save Earth from the evil invaders from Planet Mavros. 

Sci-fi storytelling is promised, but honestly, we’re here for the shooting action and this one looks set to deliver in the shmup stakes. With multiple shot and weapon types ready to roll, seven levels of action to work though and the unlocking of further campaigns as you go, should you be up for a new, old, side-scroller and fancy laying waste to the alien hordes, Spacewing War could well be it. 

The key game features include:

  • Blast through 7 levels of puzzles and retro shoot’em up action!
  • Customize your experience with 40 color palettes.
  • Find power-ups and juggle a wide variety of shot types!
  • Unlock new campaigns as you progress.
  • Enjoy a charming and light-hearted sci-fi narrative.
  • Discover secrets hidden throughout the varied stages!

If you still want to get in on what it brings, pop over to the digital store of your choice and grab a download. It’s pretty cheap at the Xbox Store for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, running a similar level on PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch and on Steam for PC. It’s optimised for the current/next-gen consoles of PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.
