Asteroids like vertical shooter; diverse and challenging

Astrofire is a vertical shooter in the same vein as Asteroids, however, it is a much more diverse game than that classic arcade shooter, in that it has a lot more enemies, it has much more diverse roaster of weapons and upgrades and it also brings forth a lot of beautiful, space themed backgrounds. The gameplay is mainly based on shooting enemies, then, at the opportune moment, you can get upgrades, that either offer you a perk in terms of your shooting abilities, or offer you some defensive mechanic, that works great in keeping you safe from the enemy missiles, or from other sources of danger. The controls are very convincing, as they respond immediately, and the fact that each level has its own theme adds another layer of enticement to the game. Because, if you get hooked, you'll really want to see what comes next, what the next level will look like. Sure, it never gets too far from the recipe, it's still mainly about shooting and that can get repetitive after a while, but then again, this kind of recipe is great for taking your mind away from more serious matters. A good alternative to Astrofire can be Outer Ridge which is still mostly an asteroids shooter, but from a first person perspective.
