Windows 8.1 App Watch: Astro Bouncer

May 26, 2015

Another catchy name for a catch game. Astro Bouncer is, for all intents and purposes, inspired by Flappy Bird, a casual game that took the mobile world by storm not too long ago.

This too is an endless runner, drawing on several gameplay elements of the previously mentioned title.

You control an astronaut and are tasked with surviving for as long as possible — your jet pack comes into play, as do some neatly timed jumps in order to avoid spikes, aliens and other world elements that can hurt you. Power-ups to help survive longer and the ability to collects stars complete the deal.

The official description:

“You are an astronaut who got lost in the galaxy and crash-landed on a dangerous alien planet. Try to survive as long as you can! Just tap the screen to jump using your jet pack to stay in the air. Collect stars to reach the highest score. Use power-ups effectively to stay alive longer.

Force Field shields you and prevents any damage. Magnetic Suit uses the force of gravity to attract nearby stars. Jet Booster makes you fly higher. Plasma Mine explodes and shoots enemy creatures. Space is a dangerous place, it’s full of spiky monsters from all around the universe. How long can you keep bouncing?”

The presentation is sublime, with a colorful cartoon style.

This free game is available as a universal app, with a breezy download size of 15.6MB, meaning you can easily play it on your Windows Phone handsets as well as Windows powered PCs running the x86, x64 and ARM versions of the operating system.
