Description

Astro Fire is an Asteroids variant, but with a few twists: instead of asteroids there are monsters of sorts to shoot at, there are power-ups (two kinds of weapons) and shields (which means a single blow doesn't kill the player character), and players can also set whether or not they want momentum enabled. The full version of the game includes three different episodes with many levels.

Astro Fire actually supports taking screenshots. If you run the game with the switch "-screenshot", it will not display a message during pause.
