Description

Astro Duel is a competitive local multiplayer party game. Rounds are quick and death is sudden. Blast your friends using asteroid-style ships. Run over their helpless bodies for good measure. Ships can be armed with offensive and defensive pickups including missiles, lasers, jousters and shields. Rich, varied arenas provide a host of hiding places and hazards. Use barriers and asteroids as cover. Avoid turrets, death beams, and black holes or you're dead.

History

Growing up playing couch multiplayer games was awesome. Endless nights of Bomberman. Mario Kart. NBA Jam. Ever sentimental for the good old days, I started working on a game that tries to recapture these warm feelings. A staying-up-till-2am-battling-my-favorite-people simulator. After on-and-off work for a couple years, Astro Duel was released in July 2014. In early 2016 Astro Duel was released for Windows and Mac on Steam. Just over a year later, an expanded version with support for up to six players was released on Nintendo Switch.
