"Like a loveletter to Gradius, Satazius brings slower paced, power-up oriented gameplay for cheap. It's still challenging, but also strangely cozy."

In our experience, shooting games are generally pretty slow to be approved on Steam Greenlight, but that was fast!! Hopefully that means that you guys are enjoying ASTRO PORT’s games and looking forward to the next ones! :) THANK YOU to everyone for voting and bringing this next installment of the ASTRO SAGA to Steam!
For this release, we’ll be implementing dual analog controls, online leaderboards, achievements, trading cards, and should have a Linux version reading hopefully in time for simultaneous release with the Windows version. In view of the work to be done, end of October would be a realistic release date, but we will make it earlier if at all possible. Please watch for future announcements!

Once again, on behalf of everyone at Nyu Media and ASTRO PORT, THANK YOU to everyone for making this release possible!

Despre acest joc

The year is 2051. Location: SATAZIUS, a long-abandoned planet.
The cruiser Agano was on patrol when it was attacked and stricken by a confederacy of space pirates that had established a base on SATAZIUS. The pirates attacked the Agano intending to steal the assault ship ‘Trafalgar’ that was stowed aboard the Agano, but the Trafalgar made a successful emergency escape.
The crew of the Trafalgar calculated the probability of successfully escaping the pirate overrun planet at 0.02%; the probability of charging into and successfully destroying the pirate base was 1%. Taking the higher probability escape plan, the crew of the Trafalgar turned their ship toward the pirate horde and began their charge into the heart of SATAZIUS.
SATAZIUS is an awesome old school side-scrolling arcade shooter by accomplished indie developer ASTRO PORT (Gigantic Army, Armed Seven, Supercharged Robot Vulkaiser), featuring an arsenal of 13 types of upgradeable weapons, power-ups, obstacles and boss encounters that arcade veterans will enjoying getting to grips with. Customize your ship by selecting two side weapons which can be cycled and deployed at any time during the action, and a charge attack to unleash massive destruction.
There is a plethora of enemy ships to shoot down, tight spaces to navigate, power ups to grab, and bonuses to acquire. Featuring great stage design, a thumping techno soundtrack, fast and outstanding action, old school graphics and giant bosses, SATAZIUS is a true throwback to old-school arcade shoot ‘em ups, replete with homages which will be instantly recognizable to fans of arcade shooters.

Key features:

  • 13 upgradeable weapons to choose from
  • 4 difficult levels allowing accessibility for new players while challenging veterans as well
  • Varied and exciting stage design
  • Massive bosses
  • Winner of the August 2008 Jikkyo Play Contents Award

This game is so intense! This is one of this hardcore side-scrolling shooters that you don't even know what is going on the screen. Cool feature is that you can choose from many weapons from the beginning. Gameplay is really fun and unpredictable.

Satazius is a horizontal shoot em up in which the environments are far more dangerous than the enemies you will be fighting. You have multiple weapons to choose from and unlock more the further you progress. It is not a bullet hell as enemies fire reasonable amounts of projectiles, at least in the first two unlocked difficulties. You have a basic fire and two alt fires which you can switch between, all which can be switched for different unique weapons to make your ship like one of a kind. One shot will kill you if you don't pick up a shield power up but scraping into the environment will kill you regardless. One thing to be noted is that the game worked perfectly fine from the get go with my 360 pad even though it doesn't say that it has controller compatibility on the Steam page

The one thing that was weird with the controller was that you can not bind the pause button to it which can be problematic. No dpad support either which is not too great considering the environments require pixel perfect navigation. On top of your already massive fire power you have a special rechargeable move which is really helpful against bosses. There is also powerups scattered around the level to further increase your damage and speed. All this makes you sound overpowered as heck, and you are actually pretty overpowered and the devs know it. They will constantly sucker punch you with things you had no way to see coming instead of offering a fair challenge.

You are offered 9 continues each which grants you three lives a pop. Most of my deaths felt pretty cheap and made it into a trail and error type of game until you memorize the level. If you don't enjoy flying through very narrow insta-kill environments with little time to react this is not the game for you. Being only 7 levels long means having a high difficulty is kind of necessary but knowing that doesn't make it any less annoying when you have to traverse a ton of hazards, get sucker punched and have to repeat that section again. Each time you die you are thrown back into a previous checkpoint instead of simply respawning. It does lengthen the game and it does feel like an arcade game for better or worse.

Graphics are nice and have a decent amount of detail to them. The explosions and debris flying around after you shoot down enemies look great as well. It runs at 60fps which is another point in it's favor. Even the music is pretty catchy. Outside of the main mode you have a “practice” mode where you can choose any level to play but you don't have any continues which makes it harder than playing through the actual game. Do not press the escape key or you will shut down the game. The key to pause the game is “Q” for some reason. This game does feature cool looking giant bosses but most get absolutely devastated when you use your special move making them kind of a pushover.

Satazius is by no means a bad game. It's just that if you are expecting some fun shooting there is very little of that here. You will just be holding down the fire button and trying to navigate the environments which pose a far greater threat to you. And having to control your ship with the analog stick or keyboard makes it far more difficult than it should be. It is difficult and unfair but it is still fun to mix and match your weapons to blast through levels. Overall this is a solid title if you are in to arcade like shoot em ups and is recommended to those that can deal without a dpad.

A tough damn good horizontal scrolling shoot em up in the best traditions of Gradius/R-type etc. Thumping amazing soundtrack, really good visuals and tight gameplay. Nice special weapons, the action is hectic but not completely bullet hell which I appreciate.

Love this game, always play with the volume turned up to 11 :)

Ive played a decent amount of these games in the past. Minimal learning curve, configuration screen is somewhat annoying when you hook up a controller. Just lacks as a whole.

Side-scrolling shooter in the vein of Gradius and R-Type. May be a decent shooter, but I wouldn't know because I'm sick and ♥♥♥♥ing tired of games that force analog control instead of allowing the use of the d-pad.
