Today we’ll be taking a look at Astra, a Greek-flavored platformer. Astra, like most of its kind, keeps the controls to a minimum. Instead, count on the physics and the environment to do the lion’s share of character manipulation. Simplicity, itself.
The game plays smoothly and has a reasonable difficulty curve that leans a little towards the easy side, I’ve found.
The visuals are charming, with enemies that seem to have been peeled right off ancient Greek pottery. The music can get repetitious, but not so much as to break the enjoyment of the game.
