About

Asura is an indie, top-down, Hack 'n' Slash game set in a fantasy world inspired by the richness of Indian mythology. It features heavy rogue-like elements and a unique procedural skill tree which changes on every play-through.



Reincarnated as a demon, use your new-found powers and hatred to invade the 'Pancha Dvora'- the five fortresses of the Daeva empire. Embark on a journey to exact your vengeance against Hasirama - The God-King, Maharaja, and Slayer of Innocents.

Asura is inspired by rogue-like genre and is brutally difficult but FAIR…

Note: Asura is best experienced with a controller!



Procedural Skill tree:
Craft your Demon using a Skill tree which changes every time you die.

Absorb or Scavenge:
Asura can either Absorb enemies for experience points or Scavenge their corpse for loot.

Unique Combat system:
Engage the enemies with a variety of Melee, Range, and Magic weapons. Melee attacks will deal reduced damage to range enemies, Magic enemies will resist spells, and the Stamina system will always require you to strategies and adapt during battle.

Unique Loot:
Every item in Asura is unique by itself. Slash your enemies with Claw weapon or batter them with a Mighty Hammer. Shoot your enemies with your bow or ignite them with your Magic weapon. There are tons of loot to be discovered in Asura which synergies with your skills.

Brutal Mechanics:
When you get burnt, a random equipment will get destroyed from your inventory. When the enemies or traps poison you, you can't heal. When your health is low, it does not regenerate automatically. When you die, you don't get to save your progress.

Perma-Death: Inspired by Rogue-like genre, on death you lose all progress.



Procedurally Generated Skill Tree
Mold your character using the unique, procedurally-generated "Shastra" tree (with over 80 skills!) for near-infinite replayability.

Randomly Generated Levels
Rampage through the "Pancha Dvora" - 5 randomly generated fortresses, each with its particular aesthetics, enemies, and challenges

Unlock New Demon Characters
Unlock 3 different Demon variants with unique alignments to each of the core Shastras. Maximize the return on your choices to surpass your previous personal best.

Unique Weapons & Armour
Find epic loot with each play through and adapt your play to make the most of what you’ve scavenged from the corpses of your enemies.

Enemies Inspired by Indian myths
Battle hordes of enemies, each with their unique characteristics and abilities, inspired from Indian Mythos!

Indian Inspired Lore
Immerse yourself in a fantasy setting based on Indian mythology and discover a whole new take on the battle between good and evil

Perma-Death
When you die, you start all over again from the very beginning with a new skill tree.

Asura reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
I would recommend Asura, but with Limitations. Objectively, it's a really, really good Game. The Graphics are good enough, the Control relatively precise (at least with Joypad), the Setting totally unused. You have to know what you're getting into--> A heavy, hard game, which is common in this Genre also depends heavily on the Rng Loot Drop Factor. For the right Fun, I lack the Opportunity to improve with every Run, that is, to get better Starting conditions. While there are unlockable Chars, these differ in Your Starting Quip and Starting Values. However, in order to unlock them, you have to get quite far or the Progress does not become with every Run anymore. A few Game Mechanics are very cool (each Corpse of a Mob lets you decide to looten them or just in. Transforming XP), others like Burning are a little fiercely fierce (if you burn for a While, you lose an object of Equipment). On The other hand, you can buy Items, but since the Gold is already very measured at the Beginning, you don't have them at the Beginning. For example, I had a Run in which I booted all the Opponents in the first Level--> super horny Equip drop---> then have to compete against a new Ranged Game Boss--> puff after the Fight I had no more Items. The random Skilltrees definitely prolong the Fun of the Game. The Problem is that it is limited if, like me, you can hardly get over the 2nd Boss. Summary: Nix for Noobs, Gamepad duty, game but is almost a Compulsory purchase for the Price and as a Fan of this Genre (unless you stand like me on continuous Progress). Greetz Nagumo Update after a few more Hours and today's Patch: What a small Change in game Mechanics can do. 1. Have You changed today that you no longer have to learn too many Levelups or skills to unlock the other Chars. MIttlerbork I unlocked two of the three other Chars and now don't finish a Run below Level 4. Once so far came up against the Final Boss but still had to give me a beating. The other Chars bring not only their own Starting Quip, but also completely their own Passive Advantages. The one Related to the Random Skilltree and the RnG Loot Brings with it an incredible Change. 2. At the first Level Of difficulty, no weapons are now burned (only Armor). That, and memorizing the Mobs ' Attack patterns, causes the Mechanics to be a little weaker. I would rather turn them off altogether, but maybe that will come. The Battles with the Joypad have also been further improved with today's Patch as the Sensitivity of the Control has been reduced. A Slider is planned in the Future. Furthermore, you learn a few small Tricks during the Course Of the game (E.g. pauses the Game completely as soon as you move active Skills or switch to The Inventory), if you use active skills that need a Goal, the Game will also be frozen briefly, which will give you a short time. Target for the Spell to select directly. With today's Patch and the now a few more Hours of Play, I would now like to make a clear Recommendation to buy. Asura is a heavy but thoroughly fair Blush game. I hope there will be more Content:)
