Astral Ascent Direct Download
Astral Ascent is a 2D platformer rogue-lite game set in a modern fantasy world. As one of 4 Heroes with very different personalities, you must escape from the Garden, an astral prison guarded by 12 powerful and vicious bosses, the Zodiacs. Unlock dozens of unique spells for your 4 distinct characters. Optimize your own build or try out new ones to take down 12 powerful bosses. Get stronger with time to match up with your foes. Each run will test your skills and your reactivity. The Zodiacs are 12 experienced guardians dispatched over 4 gorgeous worlds. They’ll bring to the battlefield unique attacks, abilities, and patterns, backstories to uncover, and reasons to be fighting you. Get yourself warned! Ayla: The sole survivor of her guild of assassins, she uses her twin daggers to eliminate her enemies before they can react. Her speed and proficiency are unmatched. Kiran: This orphan learned life the hard way. He uses his strength to deliver attacks powerful enough to create shockwaves. Brutal. Calie: This talented sculptor wants her freedom back. She will use her magical gemstones to pierce enemy defenses and shred them to bits. She is unforgiving. Octave: Trained by a powerful witch, this young fighter summons ethereal guns to attack his foes. When needed, he can conjure bigger weapons as well. Lethal in all cases.
Astral Ascent is a rogue-lite infused with narration. Replayability is part of our story which will be unraveled piece by piece. As you get stronger, you will discover more about the characters, their motivations, and the secrets of the world they’re trapped in. Fun game, but hate that you can’t save progress while progressing with the game. God forbid you want to go to sleep, or have to leave and do other things. You lose all your progress, and are sent back to the hub world. Had a good run, and selected take a break, thinking despite the warning, I thought my run surely wouldn’t just end, but I was wrong. I gotta say this is one of the best rouge-lites out there. It’s so damn fun and rewarding even when you die. You always have new things to look forward to once you finally die or complete the run. You use spells to do big damage to enemies and can also be slotted with up to 4 gambits that give that spell special effects like, % damage/heal chance of crit or status and even summons. Your goal is to escape but each stage will be a fixed list of 3 Zodiacs that will be random. So 4 stages and with each being 3 zodiacs that are random and after either encountering them or beating them once. There is a chance you can find them in the next run or at A bar and they’ll join you if you can clear their challenge. There’s only too much to explain in a review to cover everything but I’ll do the most I can.

Bought the game in really really early version of the game. I quite liked the game. The combat was fun and the boss designs were one of the best I saw compared to many indie action roguelike games, but the flaws were really big turn off for me to keep playing it. Each characters felt not that different which could make the game felt repetitive after awhile. More importantly the performance was really poor which in fast-paced action game like this, could be really frustrating.
