    Astronot is a retro-styled metroidvania in which you play as a space garbage worker whose ship was shot down by an unknown source. The game features multiple powerups and a large game world consisting of seven unique areas with six bosses. Also hidden around the game world are collectibles that unlock a special bonus ending.

    A lite version will also be released on the 21st which only contains about half of the game world with only a few bosses. If you purchase the full version, you're able to transfer your saves!

    A lowly garbage worker on a trading ship is the only survivor after a crash on an uncharted planet filled with strange beings.

    Hooked me with "metroidvania" and reeled me in with the vid, but yeah, disappointing to then realise this isn't out yet.

    I actually love the video and the corny song, and look forward to some low-res pixely Metroidvania goodness. I wish you the best of luck, especially with Tier 2 pricing and will hope for a great deal of content and some creative future updates. And yes, I'm hoping to check this out and give it a nice, long test drive as soon as I'm able to - bring on the old-school fun! :)

    This game looks fantastic and very imaginative. I look forward to playing it. The App Store needs more of this type of creativity.
