astro is a simple space shooter inspired by oldie Atari Asteroids console video game.

The game was created in Superpowers HTML5 2D+3D game maker with Superpowers Asset Packs.

It is recommended to use fullscreen mode.

Have fun!

How to play

  • You control a ship which flies in space.
  • Avoid asteroids, enemy shots and enemies themselves which cause destruction of your ship.
  • Shooting asteroids, enemy ships, bombs, etc. gives you points.
  • Shooting decreases your energy which, in turn, slows down further shooting and ship moving.
  • Pick up the "E" bonus to charge ship energy.
  • Pick up the "S" bonus to activate shield of the ship for 10 seconds. The shield protects the ship from destruction.
  • Pick up "life" (small ship) bonus giving you extra life.
  • Pick up "ship upgrade" (ship of another shape) bonus which makes energy of your ship more durable.
