What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“It is my first game and I believe it is a good game, but I also believe you can help me make it better. New ideas for enemies, items or abilities are always welcome. Together we can make a great game. A game I hope every single one of you will enjoy.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“In four months I want to include all good ideas into the game (as long as they are possible). Eliminate all Bugs which I missed in my beta testing phase and make the game enjoyable to you all.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“All the main features are finished and the game is in a playable stage. The full version is planned to include:
  • more enemies
  • more bosses
  • more items
  • more stages
  • no (at least less) bugs :D
  • Better (hopefully full) Controller support
I might also change some of the game features”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Playable version with all the main features fully implemented. I believe it is already a good game you can enjoy and is worth your money. Currently implemented features:
  • 5 different enemies with stronger elite versions
  • 4 different bosses
  • 4 Stages
  • Unlockable Items
  • Powerful Abilities

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“I will double the price when leaving early access. At one dollar I believe the game price is rather low and my reason behind this low price is mainly that I am not 100% sure that my game will run bug free on every system as it is my first game ever. So you might encounter some bugs in the beginning and therefore I want to offer you the game as cheap as possible.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“You have a new idea for an enemy? Great let me know! A game mechanic needs to be improved? Let me know and I will fix it. You found a bug? Here have a cookie while I fix it. You have this amazing idea for a new very complex boss and it is AMAZING? Cool! I promise I will take a look at it and who knows maybe my hobby skills will suffice to make it happen :D (no promises)

All input is really appreciated. When you work on a game for a while you start to lose sight of the bigger picture.”

New version, Thank you and Beta branch

Hello everybody,

first of all a thank you for all of you who bought my game and supported me with bug, reports and improvement advice. Thank you.

As of today Aliens&Asteroids has sold 250 times. That number might seem rather small and not really something to be happy about, but all the reviews I received so far were positiv and therefore I believe that most of you who bought the game are indeed enjoying it. And that is certainly something to be happy about.

Next there is a new Beta branch available with the new version 0.10.0.22. It has no password or anything and is open for everyone. In the future I will always first upload a new version to the beta branch and several days later to the default branch so that all of you can enjoy it. The reason behind it is mostly to test the new versions for bugs.

In the new version the Magic potion is implemented and the crystal bug is fixed, as well as some smaller changes to some existing items.

And Thank you again for all the kind reviews. Each of them means a lot to me and I can't wait for the day when the blue thumbs up Button appears on my store page.

Best regards and have a very nice day,

Marc

Bug Fixes, Steam Leaderboard and increased Crystal Drop Chance



Hello everybody,

I was able to fix most reported bugs (except the music/sound issue, that will take a while) and a new Version 0.10.0.20 will go live in a few minutes.

Also I included a button to get directly to the steam Leaderboard and increased the drop chance of a crystal to 2.5% per Ufo. I am not sure if I will leave it that high, but for now it will help you to unlock all the amazing features I developed :D

Best Regards,
Marc

About This Game


Aliens & Asteroids is a small fast paced space shoot 'em up. It is inspired by the classic arcade game Asteroids improved with new features, like a number of different enemies and bosses, powerful abilities, use items and power-ups.

See how long you can survive in an unending fight against hordes of hostile aliens and enemy bosses. Fight through different stages, collect power-ups to improve your ship, use mighty use items to clear the screen of any enemies, but whatever you do never let your shields deplete.

Developer Comment


Aliens & Asteroids is a hobby project of mine. Everything except the music was created by me. I hope all of you will enjoy my game and have a good time playing it. If you find any bugs or encounter any problems feel free to contact me at any time and I hope I can help you. I plan to support and add to Aliens & Asteroids for quite a while. (Further items, enemies, stages and bosses)

  • 5 different enemy types with stronger elite versions
  • Powerful abilities
  • Unlockable Power-ups and Useitems
