Astronite is a running, jumping and shooting game where you control a brave explorer working through challenging zones full of hidden secrets, enemies and big bosses. Play combines action, exploration, puzzles and jumping. It stands out for it's simple black and white visuals and precise gameplay.

Astronite combines exploration and combat in a style often called Metroidvania. As with this genre, you start with very few powers and face a huge world. As you gain more powers and weapons you can access more of the world and take on ever more challenge enemies.

The result is a challenging game full of retro moments and inviting new areas. Like Hollow Knight, this is a tough challenge and you die many times. There are always secrets to discover in the levels and the puzzles are fair and logical.
