Astro Avenger

Flies a spaceship and takes down enemy forces

Brings forward a game which simulates the old arcade space shooter games, where you control a space fighter and blast enemies away. Flies through countless planets and environments where both peaceful and aggressive alien species are to be found. Upgrades the ship constantly and refills ammo to be prepared for the future fights.

If you have not played AstroAvenger, you have no idea what a cool space shooter is. Using advanced 3D technology, AstroAvenger features top-notch graphics, excellent sound effects and tons of blasting fun. The question is can you handle so much space fighting?
AstroAvenger is split into 5 different worlds (galaxies), each with 10 levels (a total of fifty). As you move on, your opponents become more dangerous and deadly, before you finally encounter ?level Boss?. The good news is you get money for each destroyed enemy battleship. With this money, you can turn your rather average spaceship into a space fortress. You can buy power-ups for your weapons and replace old weapon systems new ones. Likewise, you can upgrade your armor and batteries (which is essential, since each laser blast or plasma shot consumes quite a bit of energy). And it?s sure a good idea to stock up on rockets and bombs, which act as a backup weapon when situation becomes dire.
The trick with AstroAvenger is that you have to plan carefully and conserve your resources. Coming up with a right spaceship improvement strategy can save a lot of troubles later on in the game. Likewise, making a mistake in the very beginning may make finishing the game nearly impossible. The good news is that the registered users can save the game and load it later.
AstroAvenger is published by the same folks who brought you AirStrike 3D, so you can be sure that the game meets demands of the most insistent space shooter fans and scrolling game aficionados.Astro Avenger is a simple yet entertaining free space shooter game. The story is simple: you are the pilot of the only spaceship that can warn the imperial troops that the empire is in danger. To do so, you need to travel through five galaxies and overcome many dangers.

The game itself is very simple to play, although you can choose among three difficulty levels. Your ship will be flying among different types of enemy ships, and you need to destroy as many as you can while advancing toward your destiny. Your ship can endure a limited amount of damage before being destroyed. If this happens, you will need to start the game over. There are several weapons you can pick up when battling that can make your ship stronger. Also, you can purchase new and more powerful weapons.

As you can see, it is the typical shooter game, so it does not offer any novelty. Nevertheless, it is very entertaining, and if you enjoy this type of games, then it may be entertaining for you.

The game is absolutely free to download and use, but the installation wizard asks you to make MiPlayCity your default search engine and to add an extension to your browser, You can decline to do so and still have the game installed in your system.
