Asterash is a fast-paced bullet hell which features permadeath, upgrades, highscores and more!
Play complete different rounds over and over against hundreds and hundreds of enemies in seek of the best highscore in Newgrounds.
Each time you start a game, you will recieve a random level 1 weapon. You will be able to carry up to two weapons and upgrade each one of them up to three levels. But choose wisely and be careful, dying means to start over.
There are a lot of different enemies with different mechanics that will spawn in higher quantities as your score becomes higher. Move carefully around the space while firing in order to survive the longest.
Every once in a while, a special hazzard will also show up: Avoid asteroids, move around clouds or try to survive while sunflares block your view.
But above everything, remember that YOU must be the best player! Get the highest highscore of all time, at least for a second, and win the so much desired "Over the top" medal!

Rated 2 / 5 stars

-3 stars for one reason: games are supposed to be based at most 10% on luck, this is nearly 95% luck due to the powerups broken distribution. C-M-R-S-C-M-R-S-C-M-R-S-C-M-R-S-C-M-R-S-C-M-R-S-C-M-R-S for me is not a fun gameplay.

Not sure if it is intended but when I upgrade both guns to max the ship gets really slow, wich in a bullet hell is lame.

Nice concept tho.

An almost perfect way to waste time. Almost can't stop myself from playing it. My only gripes are the power-ups are most of the time very randomly distributed(as in which actual power up you get), and can be very scarce which isn't good when you have only the standard machine-gun or canons and the game decides to amp up the difficulty quicker than normal.

All in all, awesome game.

Simple, yet challenging; frustrating, at times, yet highly addictive, thanks to having only one life per game. Some others mentioned preferring that the ship maneuver via that arrow keys, but I like using just the mouse and needing only one hand to play this time-chewer. One thing I'd like to see in a subsequent version is the player's ship automatically firing without the player having to depress the mouse button, since there's no reason to hold one's fire in this game.

I managed to get all but two of the medals, and I don't imagine I'll ever score enough point to earn the "best-of-all-time" medal. I do wonder, though, when the "elite speed ship" is supposed to show up. As of this writing, I've managed to survive long enough to make it past 100,000 points and still didn't see it.
