Sometimes described as Asteroids on steroids, Astro3D is a 3D space shooter in which your job is to clear a field of debris from a massive three-dimensional space. Far more challenging than just shooting rocks, the debris field is full of alien ships and mines, and you are constantly in combat fighting for your life. You have an unlimited number of photon cannon shots, two nuke blasts to destroy everything within a large radius, seeker torpedoes that locks onto a target, and there are also cluster bombs in the registered version. Power-ups left behind can replenish your weapons and shields. Originally published by the developer, there was a second release listing the new publisher in the documents only, followed by a recompiled version that listed the publisher in-game and switched to a Win16 installer. Otherwise all versions are identical. There are 12 levels in this game, with only the first 3 playable in the shareware version.
