Currently 'Pay Want You Want' : D

This game was inspired by a random screenshot, which made it look like some developer had wrapped Asteroids around a planet, cool!! Turned out to be a standard clone, using a 2D planet image for its background ... so I started work on Darkside : )

Near the end of Darkside's development Super Stardust HD came out :'( but the developer was super-friendly and had no problem with the games sharing a similar mechanic.

For 200 years we have been mining our solar system's asteroid belt in peace. All that changed the day the Krainian empire invaded our outer territories. Take the controls of the Arklight X-52 and take the fight back to the enemy.

Darkside is a sci-fi based shoot 'em up in which you pilot your way around 100's of massive asteroids. Fly in and out of their dark sides as you battle a host of alien hostiles. Watch out for orbiting chunks of rock, blast them into oblivion before they destroy the mining colonies.

Extremely fun shmup!
The bite-sized shape of the weapons, the comfortable and polished controls and sweet game feel all come together to create an amazingly fun experience.
Heavy recommendation for heavy enjoyment.
