I bought the original Space Tripper back in 2001 and it's still holds up well today. Astro Tripper updates and extends it to take advantage of better graphics and higher resolution screens without losing the core look & feel and is well worth the money. It's quick to get into and is one of those games that when you get killed, you say "that was my fault, I'll do better next time!".

If you like classics such as "Uridium" and "Defender" this is probably right up your street and I fully recommend it.

There's also a free demo so that you can try it before committing. This is always a good sign from a developer and I wish more would do it.

O jogo é completamente bugado, principalmente nos últimos estágios, onde várias vezes morremos mesmo sem ter nada na tela e com tempo sobrando no relógio. Fique longe do jogo se não quiser passar raiva por algo que foi mal programado.

The game locks up when my controller is plugged in. That aside, it's quite a fun game, wish the developers would support it. Difficult to reccomend.

Astro Tripper is flashy-fasty-well done Arcade Shooter that you'll enjoy for sure. Although campaign is a bit short you'll want it to play over again.

An incredible game. Astro Tripper is the graphical upgrade to one of my all time favourite games Space Tripper. On the surface it seems like a simple Defender/Uridium clone, but give it time and you will find the great depth in gameplay it has to offer. The intensity levels that are required to beat the game on Hardest using the keyboard is something I have not found in any other game. The added Challenges that weren't present in Space Tripper are excellent for short spells of blasting action. Both Space Tripper and Astro Tripper are superb examples of the sidescrolling space shooter. A must have.

Let me start with saying that this game has frustrated me to no end at times with its difficulty and insta-death scenarios. Its a shoot'em'up kind of game in limited arenas of sorts and you beat the level once all enemies are dead and cleared out which you have to do under a fairly strict time limit. A lot of its design choices feel like the are taken or at least inspired by old arcade games since if you die and game over on the third out of four levels in a zone you will need to beat the first two again to retry that area....something that will infuriate you on the harder levels.

The game has a challenging mix of achievements for doing various specific tasks on specific levels or bosses making the game even harder then just playing it normally. Some of these will only take a try or two while others (specially "Sneeky Incursion" that took me 20+ tries) will test your patience and skill quite a bit.

Time to 100%: 2-5 hours (depending on skill and luck)

It's a brilliant arcade game. Loads of fun, flashy graphics, and although it's quite short I've replayed it many many times. For some reason this Steam re-release is optimized much more poorly than the Windows XP original and the framerate degrades pretty badly in some levels. The game is still playable and I highly recommend giving this one a try if you enjoy Defender-style arcade shmups.

Horizontal shoot-em-up with about a dozen platform levels spanning four stages plus unlockable difficulties and challenges. You have a single-target beam and a multi-target arc beam at your disposal, can choose which to power up with drops and switch between them, and the direction you're facing, with the press of a button.

The only problem with the game is that the maneuverability and inertia are quite poor and really affect your performance. A decent game otherwise, with learning to use both beam types at the right time being essential to progress and survive. Leaderboards for pretty much everything and the game looks great. Doubt I would buy it again if given the chance though due to the terrible piloting.

Trippy, fast and fun. If you need a quick arcade-fix this little game will have you covered. Reminiscent of Uridium and other homecomputer-shmups with weird, outworldy enemy designs (think Xenon II, just more colorful) it's a nice throwback to the Commodore-days of blasting aliens. Just don't expect any japanese qualities - this title is thoroughly western in design.

This game had very little music if any so it was just an okay game... until I played a few Rush albums while playing then I felt Godly. The inspiriation to do that was from a Futurama episode where Fry had to play Space Invaders.
This game has also killed my thumb from button mashing the fire button since I played with a controller and the thingy fires slower if I hold down to fire.

The game is poorly optimized (my card is GTX 680). laggy and framedrop make it unplayable. Do not buy until it is fixed.

Not bad, just bland. I died for no apparent reason on the 3rd level and had to start over at the 1st... I found that to be a good stopping point.
