Starfighter Escape was one of the two games i showcased as part of the AulaTematica booth at Dreamhack 2016. This game is a throwback to old Atari games like Asteroids, Galaga and Xevious. The game also has a hint of strategy in it with a weapon selection screen. The game was well received, specially in the audience in the younger age ranges. The game saw multiple players return to give it a "second go". Some feedback that was given was "there should be health recovering items" which i will consider for later versions of the game.
