ASRI Astral Space Racer Infinity is a side scrolling dodge game released by Game Scorpion Inc.

“Play as a new cadet testing out a new ship. Your mission is simple, fly the new ship known as Astral as fast and far as you can without crashing.”

This game puts you in control of a new spaceship that needs to avoid asteroids as it is tested out.

Gameplay wise, you can maneuver your spaceship up and down the screen to dodge the oncoming asteriods. In the first two waves (modes) the ship does not have weapons, in the wave 3 you have a weapon that fires automatically.

Once you hit an asteroids it is game over, to you will need to dodge them all.

During the waves you will also encounter special items, like orbs. You need to be selective with these, as some will speed you up, some will slow you down and others will act as a smart bomb and get rid of all the asteroids on the screen.

Gameplay wise, you are limited in movement to moving up and down, so controls are simple.

To be honest you will only play wave 2 if you like the dodging side of the game, and wave 3 if you want to have the weapon.

The developers have promised more waves and special items in the future, and this could add to the game over time.

The graphics and sound are both reasonable.

On the upside:

  • A solid dodge game.
  • Several different waves / modes to keep the interest up.

On the downside:

  • Better if played in small amounts, as things can become repetitive.
  • Lack of difficulty levels.

Overall, this is a reasonable little game, and is fun for a while. There is really nothing that will keep you coming back for long. If the developer does deliver on the promised extra content then this could bring new life to the game. It is worth a look at 79p if you like your game play simple.
