Game Review

Starflight is one the first sandbox space exploration role-playing and simulation game, it was developed by Binary Systems and published by Electronic Arts originally for MS-DOS in 1986. It was ported to the Amiga and Commodore 64 in 1989, while the Atari ST and Macintosh versions were released in 1990. An improved version for the Sega Genesis was created in 1991. The game received very good reviews by both contemporary and modern critics.

The goals of the game include exploration, collection of lifeforms and minerals, and finding habitable colony worlds. The game is completely non-linear and the player will have to begin assembling a crew and preparing the spaceship before he can leave the spacedock and start the adventure.

GamesNostalgia has packed for you the Amiga version of the game, which includes better graphics and some minor improvements compared to the DOS version.
