Title Stardust Publisher Bloodhouse Game Type Shoot-em-up Players 1 or 2 Compatibility All HD Installable No Submission Chris Vella firstname.lastname@example.org Profiled Reviewer Review This game is the best looking asteroid clone that you will ever see, only recently surpassed by Super Stardust. It's basically just a souped up version of asteroids but with power ups and an amazing 3D tunnel section. Each level is broken down into sections which have their own difficulty level. You should start on the easier ones first so that you can power up your weapons to use on the more difficult ones. Besides shooting at asteroids you are also attacked by various creatures and enemy ships. Kill the end of level guardian and you enter the amazing 3D tunnel sequence. In this section objects fly at you and you must shoot or avoid them while trying to collect bonuses that are mixed in with the enemies. There are a nice variety of options to suit your own needs of play. The game can be controlled by either joystick or keyboard. Either music or sound effects can also be selected. Switching between weapons is very simple and is just a case of pressing the spacebar. The graphics and sound in the game are superb. The graphics are ray traced and really add to the enjoyment of the game. Sure, it would still be a good game if the graphics were basic, but shooting at asteroids that really look like asteroids makes the game that much more special. In conclusion, Stardust is a very good game. It has all the playability of asteroids but looks and sounds a thousand times better. I always liked games where you have total control of how well you play, when you die it's your own fault, you can't blame the game in any way. Collision detection is perfect, as is the difficulty level. If you are a fan of shoot'em ups like I am, then you will love this game. It brings asteroids to a new and better level.
