Gameplay looks a lot like Steambirds Survival, except there's more of an RPG element to upgrading your ship with stats and special skills.

The design was influenced by both Steambirds (back when it was just a game on Kongregate), as well as a few fan-made X-Com clones. This was what originally contributed to the first, flash version of this game last year.

The RPG elements are the aspects that we will be focusing on as we build new content for the game. We see that as the best opportunity for building "out". We've already got a large update in the works, which will include new abilities, new ships, new mission types, etc.

Check out our website for more info on that.

New updates are available for Starfall: Ronin!

We've fixed a pile of bugs, including some game save issues, errors during combat and some shop bugs.

We've also added firing arcs to your ships and added varied enemy deployment to increase the strategy aspect to the game.

Let us know what you think!
