Publisher Nekki has announced the global release of Space Warrior: The Origin for iOS devices.

Developed by Caliburnus Limited, Space Warrior is a one-finger bullet-hell with a simple one-button auto-fire input catering to hardcore and casual audiences.


Those looking for a more visceral experience, they can switch to the game’s accelerometer-based control scheme when navigating their ship through its sprawling, hazard-ridden levels. As they progress, players unlock powerful upgrades, allowing for complete customization of their ship’s stats and gameplay style. As they unlock additional upgrades, players can build their ship into a hard-hitting dreadnaught, a nimble starfighter, or anything in-between.

We’re incredibly proud to be partnering with Caliburnus for this release,” said Dmitry Terekhin, Nekki’s founder and CEO. “We’re all long-time fans of the genre and we think they’ve done a fantastic job capturing what makes these games great. Playing it, I’m always brought back to classic titles like Raptor: Call of the Shadows. It’s the kind of stuff that made us want to get into this business. That said, Space Warrior is very much a modern game. Caliburnus were able to get some extremely impressive visuals out of the latest hardware. It feels great to play and we can’t wait to get it into our players’ hands.

Here’s a brief rundown of what players can expect from Space Warrior: The Origin:

  • Three unlockable ships, 11 upgrades
  • Freedom to customize for defence, power and speed
  • Obliterate waves of enemies with an armoury of space age weapons technology
  • Nine story missions each featuring a gargantuan boss
