About

Astervoid 2000 is a 1 to 4 player local-multiplayer​ space brawler, combining classic arcade action with modern gameplay.

We've re-envisioned the 1979 hit Asteroids, but as a couch-multiplayer deathmatch game. Set your nav for the asteroid fields and your phasers to kill! Your goal is to blast your opponents into space rubble. Astervoid 2000 doesn't feature any power-ups, so it all comes down to your piloting skill. Explosive, indestructible, and projectile-ricocheting icy asteroids will slam against your ship, or can be weaponized against or by your opponents. Show them who's best!

(Perfect support for gamepads as well as keyboard and mouse.)

Original Soundtrack is also available on Bandcamp.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------FEATURES:
Survival Mode
Fight against waves of AI controlled ships. The faster you destroy enemy ships the higher your score. Earn your place on our leaderboard!

Versus Mode
2 to 4 players compete head to head against one another in a free-for-all or team deathmatch. This is the way the game was meant to be played. Show your friends who the best pilot is by mastering the game's tight controls and turning them into space dust.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:
"Jousting in space! ... I could see this game being like massive, just like heaps of people playin' it." - Gamerholics Anonymous

"It's a tight game ... There's games that have just bad, sloppy controls. Then there's other games that have slightly better controls. And then there's this games like this that have extremely tight controls, where we can dash anytime we want instead of waiting on a cooldown and thus having this game be 100% skill based." -- Scythe Plays

"A very well put together game. If you guys have a weekend with downtime, with your friends or roommates and you guys are looking for something new to chill out on, this would be a really sweet drinking game. I could definitely see that." - Real Game Media

"Many of the sounds, which are not so retrospective, remind me of films like Tron Legancy and catch the futuristic charm." -- GameContrast.de (rough translation from German)

Astervoid 2000 reviews and comments

It is much to be a good game, just I would like to added more game modes in multiplayer because it is the way I play with my siblings. It bores a bit to play the same way so please agreguenle more game modes. The first mode would be the arena mode, that mode would be perfect in multiplayer mode as it would be cooperative, and the labels above says local cooperative but the game has nothing cooperative. The last way I think would be the best is the battle against boss mode, that way would consist of players lucharian against jigantes ships to reach the strongest boss. Add those modes and this game would be perfect. Thank you.

Product received for free "playable up to four players, this little title offers clashes in space, in a pretty nice 2D. Beautiful pixels therefore offer fights based on projectiles that, launched, push our ship backwards to prevent the bludgeoning without consequences. If you leave the screen, voluntarily or because of this setback, you may be disqualified. It works very well and Astervoid 2000 succeeded in proposing both the local game of quality, really intense and proposing a real evolution in the mastery of his ship, but also a solo part in survival with world ranking to the key. To brighten up the parties, several types of events will annoy the player (s): meteors that return the projectiles, bombs, alien ships that shoot you... This is not a great game, but it works very well once gathered on a couch. " You can read more articles on http:/www. gamesidestory. com

The Review of the Linux/SteamOS version of the game Astervoid 2000 is a good old-fashioned arcade asteroid seasoned with modern graphic effects, local multiplayer on 4 people (mode Deathmatch) and its features of control and inertia in space. The Game is very relevant in the company of 4 people. Single player Mode is only one and this is "Survival", waves of enemies are increasing and we are trying to survive and score as many points for the murders (there is a network list of leaders) Achivki are present, there are also cards. Cool soundtracks. There is no Russian language, there is no multiplayer network. The Price at the time of writing is overstated. Everything Was Played on Kubuntu 16.04 + laptop (i3 2310m + nvidia 540M + 8Gb RAM). The departures were not Stable, but the periodic actions with a large number of effects of explosions, the FPS is pretty decent. I recommend To buy only in the case:--If you have guests from 4 people + 3 joystick + a healthy TV/monitor. --If the price is dropped. --If You are a lover of oldschool-pixel indie goodness.
