Space Flight is a semi-idle, pixel-art, endless-runner game in which a player must perform incredible flying maneuvers and use a variety of boosters to keep rockets from destroying a spaceship. The player's goal is to keep the ship flying for as long as possible.
The game offers the player a wide variety of boosters to help protect the spaceship, including a shield, health restoration, missiles, bombs and decoy flares. The boosters are easy to find floating in the space field surrounded by glowing shields. That said, the player must fly the ship through the exact center of any booster to collect it. If they fly through part of a shield or loop around a booster, the unused item disappears from the screen.
Space Flight makes it easy for the player to use their boosters. They merely need to fly the ship. Everything is set to automatic, which means a shield automatically appears and disappears and any weapons automatically fire in one or several directions.
When the player's ship is inevitably destroyed by the rockets, they receive coins that they can use to upgrade it. They can then restart the flight to try to achieve their best highest score.
