Asteroids... But Roguelite is a game about shooting enemy ships and (you guessed it) asteroids in order to increase your score. Your multiplier grows as you kill enemies and resets when you get hit. Visit the store after bosses in order to upgrade your ship and score higher.   Try to get a build going that can survive long enough to rack up a large multiplier in order to take your place on the leaderboard!


In between rounds, you can purchase various upgrades from the shop of which there are currently over 40 of.  You can also spend money on rolling different quests to undertake. Some quests just give you a bonus for defeating a set amount of enemies, some actually upgrade your abilities themselves. For example, there's a quest for killing 50 enemies with your laser to unlock a double laser. 


And that's it!  Blow up enemies and asteroids, use your money to increase your power, and aim for a spot on the leaderboard.  Once you die, your run is over and you can start again.


I made this game in a little under four months. It's not my life's work, but I think it has a good amount of content for it's price point. I want to be clear with setting expectations that this isn't a 100 hour game, and it's priced accordingly. What you get is a high-score chasing shoot-em-up with multiple upgrade paths and quests to complete.  I've added a video of me playing for under 5 minute and defeating on of the randomized bosses.

I love this game, have played it for 2+ hours, it's just a cool little game, got it in a bundle, and really liked it.

But I find it doesn't  seem to be... amazingly optimized...? My computer starts chugging when I play it, it gets worse than when I play something like Payday 2 or Black Mesa and those are reasonably heavy games.

I find my computer getting really hot and struggling to keep up, and it uses quite a lot of my cpu.

This is a nice game, but I do have to wonder why it doesn't include the spacship controls of the original Asteroids arcade game. That was my favorite part!

When i use a ps4 controller, the right trigger is registered as being used constantly, and all mappings are attached to the right annalog stick on repeat.
Also when attempting to remap controls, the right trigger issue causses that keyboard controls will be mapped to it, but i can't even attempt to adjust controller input, as nothing happens when i click on them.

Is there any way to enter windowed mode?

Sorry but there isn't :(

Nice game, we not see the time pass when we play. After one or two hours I destroy myself and got top one XD 

wow, that might be better than i've ever gotten!

sorry for broke your leader board.I can explain you what is my strats for the hight score if you want to know

yeah that would be interesting to know

First, you need got a good boss in wave 3 (a boss spam every time 1 enemy left and after 1 enemy right) 

I think we got 3 or 4 boss like this. The best is the boss that never try to hit you, only turn around and place a mine. When you got a good boss you farm multiplier for got many cash

With cash, you buy many update and good weapons, and after you win some wave and try to find again a good boss. 

When you got many cash after this, you try to buy increase asteroid the more you can to be able to destroy more and get more point

Fun!  Thank you for your support of Ukraine during this horrible invasion.

thanks for playing it

really good game.

thank you!

This is neat! Simple concept with solid execution.
I suck at this game and rarely made it past the third wave, I think. But I had fun with what I saw. Apparently even made it to second place on the high score charts as of right now, because of how few people actually submitted scores. lol
Good stuff!
