BAM's latest signing on the GameBoy Advance has been revealed to be Star X, a futuristic flight combat game which bears more than a passing resemblance to the classic SNES title Star Fox. Under development at British company Graphic State and due for release in May, the game will feature a mixture of atmospheric and deep space combat as you fly an advanced fighter against the usual hostile aliens in 22 missions across nine different environments. Thanks to the link cable you will also be able to battle it out with your friends in four player multiplayer modes, while a training mode should help you get up to speed. "Star X incorporates proven gameplay elements and a classic graphic appearance that will appeal to a wide variety of gamers", according to BAM boss Anthony Williams. Well, that's one way of putting it. Star X is also one of the first true 3D games to grace the GameBoy Advance, showing off the power of the processor inside Nintendo's latest baby by throwing literally dozens of flat-shaded polygons around the screen simultaneously. Ah, those were the days... Related Feature - Star X screenshots
