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!

This game is really fun with nice music and graphics, but the main thing that really irks me is that my ship is incredibly difficult to control with the mouse--there's very little room for subtlety. Normally when I play bullet hells, I use the arrows on the keyboard which allows for much more flexibility. Everything with the mouse is just really jerky and I keep running into bullets with the slightest shake of the mouse. But if that doesn't bother you I can see why this would be a lot of fun. Thanks for sharing it with us!

Hello! Yes, sorry about that but our goal was to make a really difficult game with an arcade feeling! Other than that, glad you like it and thanks for playing!

This was pretty good. I have a few problems, though. The first thing is that when enemies get into a line, they are incredibly hard to attack. The background isn't that bad when it comes to enemy fire, but I often get my shots mixed up with the enemy's. That being said, it is super addictive and it got me to play.

Hello! First of all, thank you for playing our game!
About the enemies get into line, one possible strategy to that is to focus them first. Or to keep moving all the time. (I guess you are talking about the quick ones). Also, you can always just avoid them but they will close your movement space till they go.
For the enemy fire, we just released a new update that lets you make the background darker. If you want, try it out and check if the problem is solved. If not, please pm me and we will probably change the bullets colour for the next update.
Thanks a lot for playing and for the review!

I know some people like difficult games but for me the one hit death thing just stopped me from getting into it. With more lives or a shield this could be something I'd like.

We understand though we wanted to make it more like an arcade game. Anyway, thanks for trying out the game and for the review! :D
