STEEL STRIDER IS GREENLIT!!

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!

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=491089631
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!

Please Vote for STEEL STRIDER on Steam Greenlight!

The fifth game in ASTRO PORT’s ASTRO SAGA series, STEEL STRIDER, is now listed for approval and in need of YOUR vote on Steam Greenlight!

STEEL STRIDER is the follow up to GIGANTIC ARMY and pays homage to the great run and gun games such as Turrican and Super Contra, but with mouse / dual analogue stick-operated weapons. It also contains many nods, winks, and cameos from other ASTRO PORT games, so fans of the series should particularly enjoy this installment :)

We would love to bring this game to Steam, but we have to pass Steam Greenlight first! Please take a moment to vote YES at the below link and bring STEEL STRIDER to Steam!

Gigantic Army is pretty cool, I guess.

Remember the 90's? I do, because back then I lived in a house. Apparently almost every indie developer remembers the 90's as well, but I digress. But unlike most of those games that look like a strange pixely butchery of what SNES and Genesis games actually looked like, Gigantic army looks like something you could actually get in cartridge form, which is neat.

Gigantic Army starts in the year 2009, the same year I found out who my real dad is, and then regretted finding out who my real dad is. Humanity, having discovered warp travel at the turn of the 21st century, goes about it's business doing what humanity does best. That is to say tenderly loving any other species that happens to get in our way.

You are a pilot of an MCR, that's a fancy name for giant robot that may or may not be a VOTOM. Your duty as the ground pounders of the Terran Defense Force is to drop on the home planet of the Romulans, I mean the Ramulons, I mean the Klingons, no wait I got it the second time.
I think.

At the start of the game you choose a main weapon and a special weapon before going about your business of killing everyone that doesn't look like you. And what you get for this is a pretty sweet side scrolling mech game that should probably be on a MS-DOS PC or a Super Nintendo.
Seriously, they even got that whole Mode-7 thing going on, it's really cool.

I'm told the game plays like Cybernator or Assault Suits Valken, two games I've never actually played before because I live behind a convenience store and yell at passerby's. What do you want from me?
But like a SNES game, it's short but kind of challenging. It can be beaten in around an hour or so if you don't constantly get your teeth smashed in by one of the few cool bosses that out class you in every way but still get punched into mulch by your MCR's giant piston wang.

Your MCR, the Saladin At least I think it's the Saladin, I only got the name from a trading card and it's on the game's cover , moves like a giant battle robot should. It's clunky, heavy, and makes a satisfying BOOM whenever it lands on the ground. It's also slow and only has a short quick-dash to get from place to place a tad quicker.
Your weapons can include an assault rifle, a shotgun (called the riot gun), and a grenade launcher as well as your choice of missile spam to ruin someone's day.

But should you play Large Posse?

For 6 dollars? It's not that bad, I'd say get it on sale though. If you're hankering for some good ol fashion 90's mech shooting, then here you go. It's a SNES game in PC form, the story is simple, the gameplay is easy to pick up, and the bosses are pretty cool. It's a time waster if anything.

Grand Gang get's 5 VOTOM's out of 6 Robotechs.

John Cena is probably going to win Wrestlemania again.

you pick 1 gun out of 3 and 1 special also from 3 then its off to do some killing through 7 mech filled zones.
don't worry you also have some dash boots, a shield, and a metal rod to stab foes with but only 1 life to give.
you do have 3 continues but they put you back to the start of that zone.

A fairly simple shooter that looks great. The background has more detail than most platformers. Yet the game itself is pretty bland. Enemy AI seems to be pre-DOS era and constant respawning enemies are no fun. I did not like the gameplay but liked the way the game looks. If you're hardcore on platformers you'll want to play it. Otherwise, well it's nice to look at :)

GIGANTIC ARMY (!) is good for what it is. I do recommend it, but you need to know that it is very simplistic. GA, at it's core, is an arcade game. There are 3 weapons and 3 sub-weapons and that's it. No other mech customization that I can find.The controls are decent but not super tight and there is no mouse support. The resolution is pretty small and the window in Windowed mode is tiny at 1920x1080. The Story just seems to be the same as arcade but with a wall of text before the level. This is much closer to the NES games it claims influence from than Front Mission: Gun Hazard... which is one of my favorite 2D games of all time.

With all that said, I still think GA is fun. It's just not deep. The sprites are cool, the 6 guns are quite different, the bosses are huge... It's worth your time, just probably not going to last for a ton of it.

Played the hell out of Cybernator (Assault Suits Valken) on my SNES during my teens. Game's legit. A few key differences are in how the game controls: unlike Cybernator, while you hold down the fire button your aiming is locked. Might be an improvement, but it's up to you. The "dash" move is just a short dash forward, rather than a continuous smooth glide on robo-skates. That aside, this ought to feel familiar if you're fond of the mech action platformers on the SNES. I would say most of those games (Metal Warriors, Front Mission: Gun Hazard, etc.) are better and deeper than this, but Giant Army is a fine homage with some slick pixel art and nicely animated sprites.
