Astral Commander Review

Feb 17, 2011

What is the one sin that a game absolutely cannot commit? It must not be so boring that I want to stop playing…and to top that, it must not give me a good reason to stop when I’m ready to stop. Astral Commander is a path management game, similar to Flight Control, though your goal in this game is to collect resources to continue powering your base. You do this by commanding resource collecting units to pick up crystals that spawn on the map, drawing their paths, trying to keep them from colliding with each other, with the ultimate goal being to send them off screen with a full assortment of crystals. However, you not only have hazards on the various levels to avoid, you also have enemies that will pop up and attack you, which you take out by tapping on them to fire at them. There are 20 campaign levels, with 4 survival levels available.
