Astraeus 

 

I was sitting there one day minding my own business. Trying not to get sucked into the vortex of anyone else's problems. Then an interesting email came across. Family Friendly Gaming was given a digital download code to Astraeus on the PC VR. This game comes from the same person that made Darknet. I was intrigued, interested, and extremely curious. Darknet had its Playstation VR moments.

Teen Gamer went about the business of downloading Astraeus on our new gaming PC. He came to me hours later aggravated, frustrated, agitated, and irritated. He struggled mightily to get Astraeus installed on our gaming PC. Astraeus is only 138 megs so there should have been no issues. We are finding way more problems with PC VR games than Playstation VR games. Astraeus kept wanting to install. Then the Steam VR needed to install, and Oculus software had to be up. Safe to say it left a real bad taste in his mouth.

Thankfully he was not going to be partaking of Astraeus. I was. It was my bag baby. Astraeus is all about mining. We are in a 3D area with all kinds of asteroids. They are of different types too. We can create power plants, mines, factories or cannons. We need power for everything. We need power plants to send out drones to get more locations. Mines are needed for gathering the resources. Cannons fight off the other players trying to invade our areas.

Do not think cannons are very important in Astraeus though. The goal is to get a certain set amount of resources first. Once you do that then you have won the level. So I learned to work on power plants, then factories, and then mines. In that exact order. Get enough mines going and you will quickly reach the goal. I had fun playing Astraeus. I hope it comes over to the Playstation VR.

There is a nice voice in Astraeus that can be funny at times. The skeleton of the last captain was a bit shocking to see. Astraeus required a bit of quick thinking to succeed. The music is good and the graphics look neat in virtual reality. The controls work great and it is easy selecting asteroids in Astraeus. I hope to see more games like Astraeus in the future.
