About This Game

AST-Hero is a classic shoot ‘em up born out of one question:

If the 1979 hit Asteroids had been made today, what would it look like?

Take your ship through 40 levels and traverse the vast fringes of space to reach and destroy the Mighty Mothership. Others have gone before you. None have returned.

A battle ship without weapons is nothing but target practice. Arm yourself with and upgrade multiple weapons in your fight for survival, along with a range of special bonus weapons to turn the tide of battle. You’ll go up against a horde of enemy ships and mini-bosses until reaching the Mighty Mothership. Preparation and skill are key to survival.

Notable Features:
  • 5 difficulty levels

  • Voice acted tutorial
