關於此遊戲

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.

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

Played for an hour and got to the final level, died twice, normal difficulty. Could've finished it if I played for 15 more minutes but already made up my mind on it.

The problem with this game is that as long as you mash your blade attack you are invincible to everything minus some red beams and these red cloudy energy sphere thingies that appear in the last level. Seeing as how your invincibility is also an attack, you just get up close to every boss and watch them die as you shoot beams and slice them to death. Invincibility with no cool-down would normally be an issue if the game didn't HAVE to be like that. It's a bullet-hell game, and without such a mechanic you'd die automatically, or the game would have some actual difficulty that would put off the majority of gamers.

This game outright fails to provide the challenge that the majority of SHMUPs do. Games in this category aren't about attacking; typically you just don't take your finger off the damn attack button. It's about dodging attacks and learning boss attack patterns so you can dodge accordingly. I get that it doesn't appeal to most people due to the difficulty, and changing expected mechanics in a genre is great if it leads to something good. But this game does a 180 and gives you a machine with regenerating health that can TANK damage and has from the very beginning what might as well be permanent invincibility. Why a game that ALMOST can be said to play itself gets 90's from reviewers can only be surmised as the 'indie dev' syndrome. It's a good game because an indie dev made it and man ♥♥♥♥ those big corporations!

The game also has issues with plot. Or rather, the difficulty in keeping up with it. You see, the game has Japanese voices, which is great. I love it when I get dual audio, except that this game only has Japanese VA's. Which I'm totally fine with as long as there are subtitles, and there are. The problem is that when ♥♥♥♥ is lighting your screen on fire you don't have the luxury of looking at the subtitles on your bottom left. So you have to make a decision: look at the subtitles and conversations or play the game. English voices would've resolved this, but seeing as how this is a small studio they probably couldn't afford it or, if they did get English VAs, I'd be complaining about how bad they are. It's a tough situation for the developer, but a negative is still a negative no matter the reason, and I'm merely pointing it out.

I just muted the voices and gave up on the plot when I found myself constantly switching from focusing on the bottom left and then the action on-screen. That wasn't gonna work out. Some text logs would've gone a long way with helping me actually know what the ♥♥♥♥ was going on and why there were two girls who felt like they were nearing nothing at all

nothing at all

nothing at ALL.

I'm just gonna look at the image and guess what the plot was about. Hmm...let me see....Luke 'Mr. Bitc*es' Skywalker is busy trying to bed the two girls in Gimp suits but must first impress them by riding the new Honda Mech...with DISASTREOUS results! Honestly you'd think a large company like Honda could make something better than this.

edit-the last boss was semi-difficult and it was so ♥♥♥♥ing sad because if only the rest of the damn game was like that.

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!

I want to make love to this game. It successfully combines the hot awesome lock-on of Panzer Dragoon with the mega fast mech shooter action of some other game I can't think of right now.

You're in this suit and all these Japanese anime characters start telling you about how dire everything is but that's okay because you can kill your enemies with ten million bullets. The graphics are smoking hot sexy goodness, the likes of which is seldom seen in a Japanese hybrid-genre shooter on the PC.

The game's controls give you the chance to slide and glide like one of those ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s from GunValkyrie but there's no reason to blister your thumbs in the process.

If you're like me and want to be the hero without having to endure the tough as nails nature of most shooters, give Astebreed a try.

A fantastic refinement and expansion of what Edelweiss started in their fun but flawed Ether Vapor. Astebreed is mechanically solid, easy to read and a joy to play for shmup fans. For newcomers to the genre Astebreed can work as a fantastic introduction. The game features a fantastic prologue chapter that functions as an in-game tutorial. There is also a gallery that demonstrates the various abilities and how to execute them with video and interactive tutorial segments. Finally the difficulty levels are well scaled, providing challenge and fun to all skill levels.

Once you learn the mechanics and beat the game it doesn't stop there. Astebreed features deep and rewarding scoring mechanics on top of all the other great features, so if you enjoy score chasing and leaderboards there is a lot of meat here.

Finally the presentation is about as flawless as you could ask for in this type of game. The anime stylings perfectly capture the feel of 80s and 90s mecha and space opera anime, much like Ether Vapor before it. The music, audio and visuals in game are top notch. This game is a tour de force for shmup fans and a triumph for Edelweiss' particular design concepts.

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.

3/10, A SHMUP made to appeal to mainstream audiances, stripped of all of the normal difficulty found in the genre with a cliche story and gameplay that doesn't have a lot of lasting appeal.

GOOD

The game has quite beautiful graphics and an artstyle that makes it standout. Effects and bullets are flashy enough without detracting from the gameplay. Which is good since so many SHMUPs these days tend to forget this distinction. The weapons all look nice, but in gameplay don't tend to be very interesting. Bullets of two spreads, lockon of two varieties, and finally a sword. Scoring in the game is building up multipliers while not getting hit with the bullet weapons then 'cashing out' the multiplier using the sword on high value targets or a cluster of enemies.

BAD

It's easy. RIDICULOUSLY EASY. I didn't die a single time up until the final boss. I can't say I'm a fan of the health bar nor its regenerating nature. If bullets were more of a threat perhaps but your mech is able to tank bullets on top of being a very small target. There's no interesting bullet patterns that make you think of how you want to avoid them, it's either slashing yellow bullets with your sword and spamming your EX-attack which acts like a bomb (Which also grants you a shield against bullets for a few seconds), or moving back and forth slightly to avoid the predictable bullets. With all this in mind there isn't much to improve on in multiple playthroughs. The game is also pretty short even for a SHMUP. A higher difficulty option is unlockable, but doesn't seem to change much aside from preventing full regeneration after a hit and slightly tougher enemies.

Finally... the Story. Not only is it terribly cliche, but I feel that it actually detracts from the gameplay. SHMUPs are not a good medium for telling a story and here's why. The adrenline is pumping after you beat a boss then you get interupted by a long cutscene. It's not good design to do this in this genre because you're meant to beat the game in one action filled sitting. It's not as action filled if half of the time is spent in dialog and cutscenes. If they were shorter or skippable (Which also detracts from replayability) it would be less of an issue. This all wouldn't be quite so much of a problem if the story was actually any good. Power of friendship, magic mechs with the ability to fight the previously invincible enemy forces, corruption and betrayal. It's a laundry list of anime cliches.

The best original shmup on steam, as well as the best anime game on steam.

Until ZUN corrects the shocking lack of Touhou on steam, this is as good as it gets.

Wow what an insane game. I was already totally hyped about this one, since I love shmups and played other edelweiss productions already, I knew this will not turn out badly.

So first what makes it different than other shmups, you have a f*** big sword. It was the first shmups I played where you fight close combat.
At the beginning I was a little disoriented because most danmakus/bullet hell you have to evade the bullets, so every new game mechanic which involve you to "absorb" bullets makes the gameplay really interesting.
In addition I dislike the limited continue system in other shmups, these were acceptable in the arcade era but not nowadayws so I prefer the checkpoint system, where you can instant starts over.
And even the story feels great, ok nothing more then the standard cliche anime but who cares, I like the ending, I like the characters (awesome seiyuu) and since it is mostly a highscore/gameplay-driven game it is a nice extra.

What is left to say, actually I only finished this in easy mode (yet) because I struggle on my first try at normal which is great, because at first I did not understand the score/health system and in my opinion shmups have to be difficult. If I could finish a shmups on first try in normal something is definetly wrong. So for people who say it is short and do not have enough content, this is not a game made for them, you have to set you own goal and play it over and over until you beat the next stage, get higher score, no damage etc.
Play this game one or two hour, get better with every run until finally beat the stage and this will be the most satisfying game moment ever, at least for me.

This game is exactly what I wanted in a mecha game. The high speed, intense action really satisfied me in ways that Zone of the Enders just couldn't. When I think of a mecha game I think fast paced, high action, amazing moves, and an awesome looking robot to annihilate enemies in. I did not think I would love this game as much as I do now. 10/10 would bang again.
