Orbital Runner ‘Astra’ Launching this Thursday

We’ve had our eye on upcoming orbital runner Astra for a while now, first back in February with a glimpse of the game in the world’s greatest form of media the animated .gif and then more recently in early August with a proper trailer which gave us a look at the game in motion. Well, it’s all coming to a head as Astra is finished, approved by Apple, and set to launch on September 24th. Here’s that trailer again.

As you can see, Astra has a really interesting art style and a rather grand scope for these types of orbital platformers, which have been around for a while. It’s a refreshing take on the genre to be honest, and I’m really looking forward to getting my hands on the final version. Look for Astra to hit the App Store on September 24th, and while no price was specified it will be released as a premium game.
