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!

I think that the machine gun is a little bit over powered but this game is good it runs smoothly and it kinda reminds me of that one Namco game but I don't remember the name of it. it has good graphics.

This game is really addicting and I love it. Keep up your good work. Also it would be nice if we could just select our weapon from the start but at least we can still earn it.

fun, but the machinegun level 2 making you horribly slow seems... bad.
my best combination is shotgun and rockets. level 3 shotgun pulses in front of you destroying enemy bullets.
best score 187000

-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.
