Beautiful, Greek myth-inspired platformer Astra will be out for iOS this September
Chase the darkness away
Astra looked good when we saw it back in February. Now it's looking even better in its new trailer.
As explained before, Astra is a platform-runner with the added kick of space physics.
It's inspired by Greek mythology, hence it has you playing as Hemera, the goddess of daylight, fighting against darkness.
"Creatures of the night steal the light in their quest for eternal darkness," reads the game's description, "and Hemera embarks on an adventure to restore the balance, this is the starting point of Astra."
You have to explore the game's universe by telling her when to leap from planet to planet as she runs around them, avoiding those dark ceratures. You also have you solve puzzles as you go.
In total, there are four different parts of the universe to traverse, each one corresponding to an element: fire, earth, water, and air.
However, when Astra arrives on iOS as a premium game in September, it will only have two of these worlds. The other two will arrive later in free updates.
It's a beautiful game that's been made to half-resemble ancient paintings of the Greek gods combined with a more soft-shaped look.
We'll let you know when Astra is available to buy. Keep an eye on the developer's website for updates.
