9.5 /10 – Destructoid

“If you’re looking for a game that has subtleties and intricacies often overlooked in modern games then Astebreed comes highly recommended.”

Acerca deste jogo

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.

Requisitos do Sistema

    Minimum:
    • OS: Windows XP/Vista/7/8
    • Processor: Core 2 Duo or faster
    • Graphics: Shader Model 3.0 compatible, GeForce 8600GT (2007 model) or better
    • DirectX: Version 9.0
    • Additional Notes: Controller recommended

Astbreed is a game that leaves a lot of story to the imagination, the 'how' & the 'why', go largely unexplained. However the action is by far a crowning achievement, as a sidescroller, Astebreed goes to great lengths to create changing dimensions during play. You may be charging headlong into enemy fire to find that the enemy is now behind you, or drop down on a foe & fly circles around them during combat.

During combat you have Spread Shot/Spread lock-on, Focus Shot/Focus lock-on, Blade Flurry/Blade Dash, EX Nova/ EX Blade Storm/ EX Wild. The shot & blade techniques are a simple difference between holding down the required button, however the EX attacks vary depending on how many targets your locked on -if any- & lastly if you've locked every weapon you have on a single target you go EX Wild.

The game has difficulty settings, chapter select, & leaderboards as part of the replay experience. It also has a gallery of all sorts of unlockable images to award your exceptional efforts.

10/10 I would save my kawaii sisters again. :D

Hands down...one of the best shooters available on steam (as of 2014)

Great voice acting and amazing soundtrack.

If you enjoy arcade-style shooters with the correct amount of difficulty...do give this a try.

This beautiful game does require a powerful PC to run smoothly ^_^"

as a guy who played strikers 1945, raiden series and other bullet-hell games, this game really takes it to another level. from graphics to game mechanics itself, it really is different than other games i've played. the story is quite intriguing and when they decided to add voices to the game... "my god, this game is awesome" the only thing missing here (according to me that is) is the multi player function. i'd love to kick some serious ♥♥♥ in this game with my friends in co-op like the olden days of playstation. i think that is all i missed from this type of game.

and one more thing....

THE SOUNDTRACK IS AWESOME !!!!!!

A great, great game. Edelweiss doesn't disappoint again. Easily one of my favorite shmups although fans of more hardcore 'bullet hells' might find it a bit easy/forgiving. Haven't tried on the hardest difficulty yet so maybe that changes this. Really fun combat system and the changing perspectives (similar to Ethor Vapor) are done very well to make the beautiful and cinematic stages even more so. Only gripe people may have is the brevity of the game, though it's understandable as a doujin game that follows in the style of classic arcade shmups. Lots of replay value, though as it goes with these types of games, and I certainly look forward to picking this up whenever the mood hits to play it again.

Astebreed is a hard sell in my opinion. First off, it's borderline bullet hell. Yes, the whole screen is going to be covered in flashing red, blue and purple lights the entire game. Yes, you're going to have really stupid boss fights with multiple forms. Yes, when you die on the last form, you have to start back at form 1 and work all the way back to the final form only to die yet again. If you're not immediately put off by these design choices, you should keep an eye on Astebreed.

Truth be told, Astebreed isn't very hard by bullet hell standards. I'm God-awful at these games and I made it to the second to last boss on Normal without dying a single time. The story is one of the best ways Astebreed sinks its hooks into you. It may be dumb anime ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ most of the time (Really? The aliens decided to experiment on little girls for their world-dominating mecha project?) and you won't be able to read the dialoge what with the BULLET HELL going on in the foreground, but it's nice that they made the effort. Keep in mind that a single playthrough is just over an hour if you're not a baddie like me. Unless you're going to replay this game on Normal and Hard with score attack in mind, I'd think twice before buying. But if that's your cup of tea, then Astebreed comes highly recommended!

I received this game through a humble bundle purchase. I wasnt't expecting much from it, but i have to say that i was pleasantly surprised. Although I was able to beat the game in under 4 hours, the visuals are great, and I had fun.

Get some booze - you'll need it so you can understand the japanese translation.
Fun bullet hell game. You're prolly going to lose drunk.
Or win sober.
If you're sober, you prolly won't understand the storyline.
If you're drunk, you will priolly lose, but understand the story.
Heck, if you're sober you're going to lose too - this is bullet hell, son. Designed for teenagers with reflexes that put an adult's to shame.

Still a fun game, with an oddball storyline that kinda distracts you at points.

Anime? Mecha? Yes this game have those. The gameplay is pure controller or arcade stick button mashing combos. Not that fun, but a leisure to play. Playing this game too much will get you dizzy. Unlike classic "Shoot 'Em Up" genre which typically has a static view, this game camera angle dynamically changes from time to time in game to correspond with game progress, sometimes it's like playing a "3rd Person Shooter", sometimes it's a "Side Scroller".

Graphic wise, it's colorful. The audio is mediocre and the voice acting is awful.

For it's price, assume like you're into supporting indie games scene. Not a bad choice.

Gameplay 3/5
Graphics 3/5
Audio 3/5
Storyline 2/5
Price 3/5

In the massive world of anime, Astebreed asks a question that may have never been asked before, and one that I have been pondering since time immemorial. What if your waifu was a giant robot with the soul of a young girl?

The answer, provided by Astebreed, is one of epic OVA proportions. But don't let yourself be fooled, there is kawaii to be found inside this world. But you must fight for it. You must fight to create a more kawaii world for everyone. Should you fail to do so, there will be no kawaii left. No more oppai. No more moe. Even otome novels will be a thing of the past. This is not a world worth living in. Ready your button fingers and slice those bullets to carve a path to a world of kawaii for everyone, a world where maybe even Sakura Angels could one day be a reality.

This game is a test of your dedication. Will you fight for this utopia to become real? Or will you run and doom everyone to a world of darkness and despair? Even your waifu? Even your own waifu?

A little foreword before this review starts proper: Due the fact cusses abruptly become ♥♥♥♥♥♥ for some odd reason. Which do not, in my humble opinion, expound upon how this game rocks on many known, and unknown, levels. To wit, I will be replacing cusses with various words that are found on sweethearts. Now, on to the review proper.

What else can I say about this game that has not been already said by many countless others. The controls are solid, the acting is top notch, the difficulty follows a decent curve (starts off pretty easy at first, but you'll need to have that knowhow to keep yourself in one piece come the latter half of the game let me tell you), the graphics are swank, and just.... EVERYTHING!! EVERYTHING about this game looks and feels like it had been crafted very carefully and very heartfeltly by people who knew how to make a FOGing great game.

As of writing, I had just 1cc'd the game on easy, will intend on attemping the same on normal soon. There art many feels abound in this game, ending on a wonderful note (not spoiling anything here).

To the souls at Edelweiss; You. HUGing. ROCK! For making such a masterwork of a game, that indeed leaves many a triple A release green with envy. And the people at AGM PLAYISM also rock in the same manner for translations and bringing this jewel of a game to the other side.

Sometimes it's easy to lose track of where you're are at certain times, but that adds to the fun just as much as it detracts in certain cases. And although I know that shmups aren't everyones kinda cuppa. I do know that this is hands down, one of THE best shmups out there on the steams this year. Not even counting the fact that it had a Metacritic rating of 93, which made it the highest rated PC game of this year thus far.

To all of you avid shmup lovers and indeed, anyone willing to give the genre a whirl. GET. THIS. GAME. You will not be disappointed.

The movement feels a little stiff, but otherwise it's an amazing game. The attack options are great and add some freedom to strategize how you want to handle each section of enemies. The music is pretty good, and the stages themslves look great. Lots of visuals to keep you entertained the whole way through, even if you mainly only fight the same basic few types of enemies on the way to each boss.

The only downside I can really think of is you basically have to watch a replay or know spoken Japanese enough to keep up with the in-stage dialogue, because there's no way you'll have the time to just sit and read it as you play.

One of the coolest bullet-hell games I've ever played.

Pros:
-Constant camera changes: Changes from top-down to side-scrolling, and third-person fluently to keep things fresh
-Excellent Japanese voice actors
-Amazing, bright, and colorful graphics
-Sound design is perfect
-A unique lock-on system
-Unique story
-Excellent balance between the slightly overpowered sword (when you use it, your combo goes away) and bullets
-You have to constantly press the fire button to shoot, which is way better than mindlessly holding the button (in my opinion)
-Two fire modes. One fire button lets you have a spread-shot, while the other concentrates your fire directly in front of you

Cons:
-I heard it was short, but I have yet to complete it
-If you have a 7.1 headset (like the G35 or similar), there is a painfully loud noise during the game. Thankfully this is fixed by turning the sound to 2.1 in the optins and turning off rasterization (I think that's what it is, I can't remember)
-The dialogue boxes when the characters talk is down in the bottom left, so you either have to be fluent in Japanese to understand what they are saying, or you have to take your eyes away from the fight

This is bullet hell done right, and that's coming from someone who's definitely not a fan of the genre. The game is short (an experienced player can easily clear it in a single sitting), but the gameplay and full 3D rendering with impressive artwork and varying camera angles put it well above most competing titles. My biggest gripe is that the story is practically impossible to follow, and not just for the usual reasons: following along would require reading dialog balloons while dodging bullets and lasers, which is a tall order. If you want to figure out what the story's about, your best bet is to beat the game, and then read through the codex that unlocks at the end.

Shoot em up that uses top down and side by side bullet hell shooting. Game has a very anime ish story that makes little to no sense with most usual tropes.

Visually the game is great for a indie game, controls are fine but its very slow paced as far as shootem ups go, besides slashing and moving with your sword.

Game offers alot of variety with customizing challenges, which is a good thing since this game only has 6 levels to it.

Usually I don't play SHMUP, but this one is an exception. The graphic just... wow, full of details, and the system is not punishing for new player like me. The blade attack is a good addition asides from bullets attack. The story is a bit short, but it still an okay.

I hope there will be Astebreed 2, because I want to see more Fio and Esto. Both of them are good breeds lol.

Perhaps one of the most beautiful, yet difficult Bullet hell games I have played in a LONG time. The soundtrack is great, the visuals are stunning, and the controls are very smooth! My only irk is the storyline, but most bullet hell games tend to lack in that department. The added edition of some hack and slash elements really adds to the game-play and makes you balance out your attacks!

If you are looking for a bullet hell game with a kick and soem aspects of hack and slash games, this is totally for you! Just be prepared to get your butt kicked, even in easy mode!
