Astro (DSiWare)

Game Profile

At the dawn of the 30th century, the invention of the tachyon-reactor saw the beginning of the space age.

With small quantities of "Star Platinum," a mineral found in the asteroid belts, the tachyon-reactor could produce an immense amount of clean energy. This maintained interplanetary travel and the gigantic oxygen-generators required by the colonies. Human colonies appeared on all the 9 planets of the solar system.

In the Year 3187, a vast pirate fleet appeared out of hyperspace and caught us off guard. In a short time our defences were destroyed, leaving the area under pirate control. After numerous defeats it was decided to stop harvesting the "Star Platinum." The pirate leader sent a final ultimatum right before destroying the last of our battle ships: "The only way for the federation to survive is to surrender."

  • 18 unique enemies and bosses
