Über das Spiel

As of July 3rd, Astebreed is now available for $14.99.


Humanity Fights A Losing Galactic War!
Their Only Hope: a Young Pilot and a Girl Forever Changed.


You are Roy Becket, a young pilot with dreams of becoming as skilled as his adoptive father. When a galactic war with an ancient mechanical alien race reaches its boiling point, Roy is forced to spring into action and take control of an otherworldly bipedal war machine in hopes of saving what's left of humanity.

Joining Roy is a young girl who claims to have escaped the clutches of the nefarious aliens. Forever altered through horrible experimentation, she now possesses the very abilities humanity will need to push back the doomsday clock.

Together, they must battle an unrelenting army alone and reunite their shattered family.

The End of All Things is in sight. At the edge of eradication stands Astebreed.

Arcade Shooter Evolved

Astebreed takes the classic arcade shooter and breathes new life into it. Using lovingly crafted 3D models, cutting edge particle effects, and tried-and-true Japanese mecha designs, Astebreed delivers an unparalleled atmosphere of beautiful destruction.

A Full Arsenal

Roy has a considerable arsenal to combat his foes, as well. Armed with the mysterious Lucis device, Roy's mech can shoot from a distance, paint targets for precision homing attacks, and even get close for a killing blow with a powerful blade attack. No enemy shall escape your wrath, no matter where they hide.

Dynamically Changing Perspective

Your enemies are not always ahead of you. Your enemies swarm, fly and intercept, and Astebreed's dynamic perspective always keeps the action in view. Seamlessly switching between veritcal, horizontal, and 3D shooter, Astebreed will keep you guessing what your next threat will be, without ever interrupting the action.

Highly recommended, especially if you're a SHMUP fan. I definitely enjoyed my time with this. ^,^

-There are a total of 6 chapters, with a boss encounter for each. Early stages can be pretty easy, but it can get difficult later on, especially during some boss encounters. It can take you a few attempts during later boss encounters before you figure out their attack pattern and come up with a strategy to take them down!

-The visuals are pretty good for a SHMUP; I really liked the fantastic art aesthetics. Also, there are full Japanese voice overs for all of the characters (it's actually pretty good!) Subtitles are available, but you won't be reading much of it during intense fights.

-3 attacks are available to you (4 of you count the EX special which has 3 variants) and each attack has a secondary function. Scatter shots can lock on enemies around you, focus shots lock on enemies in a targeted direction and blade attacks can be used to dash across the screen. Destroying enemy shots with the blade will charge the EX meter faster.

-You'll end up using your full arsenal instead of just spamming one attack. You'll use blade attacks against tougher foes, switch between shots depending on your position, destroy certain enemy bullets with your blade, line up foes and dash across the screen with the blade dash to destroy them or avoid danger, and find the perfect moment to unleash your EX special to annihilate your foes.

-You can take some punishment before you die. Your "health" is your shields which recharges over time depending on which difficulty you're playing on.

-The camera perspective will change during combat keeping each encounter fresh. It switches between side-scrolling, top-down and 3D perspectives.

-Astebreed definitely has replayability. Hard mode is extremely challenging. You also have the option to turn on scoring to test your skills and compete against other player's scores on the online leaderboards. Feel the arcade goodness!

-There are unlockables! Hard mode (for you crazy SHMUP lovers) and other content becomes available after beating the game (not gonna spoil anything!)

Astebreed is a sort of shoot'em'up / 3D mecha game hybrid. There's a fairly complicated melee system which makes the game very different from normal shooters. In addition to a generic shot and melee you have the ability to lock-on to enemies in an area.

The view of the gameplay shifts throughout the game; scrolling directions change and sometimes you only shoot enemies in the background. This is the best implementation of this I've seen so far, I felt it didn't disturb my gameplay at all unlike say in Eschatos or Ether Vapor.

A single playthrough while skipping all cutscenes takes about 30 minutes, which is average for a shmup. There is also chapter select to play each of the 6 chapters.

Pros:
+ Extremely impressive presentation for an indie game. Graphics, music and sound effects are all top notch
+ Shooting and melee combat systems are merged nicely. There is a lot of depth to how the systems can be used.
+ Approachable to beginners of the genre due to varied difficulty options, lifebar and a comprehensive tutorial
+ Simple intuitive scoring system; shoot things with your shot or lock-on to increase a multiplier, then get a lot of points by killing enemies using melee attacks with a high multiplier
+ Well produced (but generic) anime storyline to follow throughout the game. I'm assuming the japanese voice actors are pretty good as well.
+ Lots of extras and achievements to unlock

Cons:
- It can be very difficult to see bullets and your hitbox when there's a lot of stuff going on
- Some unskippable cutscenes even with story dialogue turned off in options
- No 'super difficult' mode for hardcore fans of the genre. There's also not that much actual bullet dodging on hard mode because about half of all bullet patterns can be cancelled with melee strikes.
- Lack of cohesion in enemy behavior: the same enemy type might shoot completely different attack patterns in different waves. Some attacks aren't telegraphed well (very fast red lasers without warning, etc)

One of the best SHMUPS I've played! Do not be put off by the inclusion of anime (why would you hate anime :/)

Astebreed offers a challenging gameplay that progressively increases in difficulty. At some moments, you may feel like you understood and mastered the game mechanics. But it is at such moments that the game throws you off and forces you to rethink how you control your mecha and play the game. The achievements prove worthwhile to see if you are really up to challenge of mastering the game.

The game's visuals are crisp and do help (rather than stray) with my enjoyment of the game. The graphic effects do add to the whole epicness of the battle. The sound effects are thankfully not grating (some games have awful SFX that makes SHMUPS sound like pea-shooters).

Get this game! It will deliver the enjoyment you seek!
