Astebreed is an arcade action game combining elements typical for shoot up titles and classic three-dimensional shooters. Guided by a powerful mecca, we face hordes of enemies, but we observe the fights from different perspectives - once it is a TPP view, sometimes 2D, and at certain moments even an isometric projection. Edelweiss studio is responsible for the production of the program.
The player takes on the role of Roy Becket, a young pilot who dreams of matching the skills of his legendary father. He receives the chance to prove his value much faster than expected. His galaxy was invaded by a race of aggressive mosses that destroy everything on their way. The army, to which Roy belongs, manages to capture one of the special machines and convert them to serve humanity. However, he needs someone to sit at her helm - the task falls on the shoulders of the hero, and in his crusade helps him a young girl.
During the fight we can use three types of attacks: direct attacks with the sword, distance attacks and self-levelling attacks. Their efficient use and quick orientation in what is happening on the screen is the key to success. However, the fact that from time to time the perspective from which we look at the battlefield changes hinders the task.
Astebreed has a very impressive graphics. Although the models themselves are not particularly complex, the number of colors and molecular effects that occur during combat, makes the game has its atmosphere and unquestionable charm.
