Description

Astro Duel 2 is an arena combat game set in the open frontiers of the Echo System. A versus and co-op experience that blurs the line between top-down space shooter and platform fighter. Classic arcade action built with fresh, fluid mechanics.

History

During the development of Astro Duel in 2014, Rusty Moyher experimented with redesigned controls built natively for a gamepad analogue stick. The prototype was soon followed by faster combat, new ship types, and pilot blades. This would have led to a normal-sized sequel. Then a crazy idea was found: what if the pilots could enter gravity zones and it became a platformer? The ambitious addition was too exciting to ignore. So began the 8 year journey of building Astro Duel 2.

Features

  • Pilot an elite Nano Fighter that lets you smoothly transition between space flight and ground combat
  • Pick from a roster of unique ships - each with a distinct play style and advantages
