Astro Duel is a competitive local multiplayer game for iPad and Apple TV.
Inspired from endless nights of Super Bomberman, rounds are quick and death is sudden. 2 to 4 players blast each other using asteroid-style ships. The goal: KILL KILL KILL!!
=== Feature List ===
13 DYNAMIC ARENAS
Rich, varied arenas provide a host of hiding places and hazards. Use barriers and asteroids as cover. Avoid turrets, death beams, and black holes or you're dead.
MULTIPLE GAME MODES
Battle for the most kills in Ship Hunters, outlast your opponents in Pilot Hunters, or join forces in Team Deathmatch.
Ships can be armed with offensive and defensive pickups including missiles, lasers, jousters and shields. Race to collect powerups to give yourself an edge or blast powerup-greedy opponents before they reach their prize.
Up to 2 players can pilot their ships using just an iPad. No controllers required.
iPHONES AS CONTROLLERS
Pilot your ship wirelessly using an iPhone or iPod Touch (with the free Astro Remote app). By using just one iPhone, three players can play simultaneously. Connect more iPhones for more players.
Play with Bluetooth iOS 7 Controllers like the SteelSeries Stratus. Also supports iCade-compatible controllers and GameDock.
Add any combination of AI ships. Practice solo against computer-controlled players, mix up free-for-alls, or battle Human vs Machine in a Team Deathmatch. Includes two levels of difficulty.
Mix up play with a variety of game variants. Start every round with a specific Powerup. Add more asteroids or remove them entirely. Enable or disable fixed spawn, winner's mini-game, friendly fire, autobalance, start with shield and more.

Astro Duel Online?
This game is amazing. I played this and Astro Party with my friends all towards the end of the school year. Now that summer break is here, I can't play this game with them anymore. Astro Online would be an amazing experience and I bet many others would enjoy it also.
Solid app, but put in the original Astro party experience as well!
The additional arenas and playing style is great, but for a $5 app that is supposed to be an upgrade, please try and put in the two button 4 player local experience of Astro Party and the replays available in the free version!

It's cool sure, but the simplicity of the original Astro party is what made it cool. Two buttons was what made it fun, and now I feel it's too complex for such a fast paced game. If the two button variation, where 4 people could play on the iPad, was back, it would be significantly better.
