Hello, excuse me if my english isn’t perfect.

After asking there : http://forums.filefront.com/showthread.php?p=2796015#post2796015 ; people told me there was no problem to write about a game I love :)

So, here I go :

I discovered this game 8 weeks ago and am really addicted to it. It’s so fun to race online with other peoples. I would like to race with more people, that’s why I came here to recommend it. We aren’t so much players yet because the game has just been released for the first time. The developpers haven’t got any money (nor time) to promote it. That’s why, we, players, decided to help. It would be very kind of you if you could speak about this game around you, that would be very kind to support an independant game.

I’ll try to sum up the idea to you : Astronoid delivers a multiplayer, high-speed galactic shoot-and-race PC game playable on the Internet. Racing (or shooting) other players online in a space ship with quick and fluid mouse-controlled steering and a 3-D front-seat vantage point, the game begins as simple, arcade-like fun and soon unveils a depth as impressive as the top simulation games.

It’s very innovative because it uses P2P which allows 5000 players to be online at the same time, adding everybody’s CPU and bandwitdh creating a sort of “huge computer”, no more problem of “host” for the game.

Before coming to race with us, have a look at a video, these aren’t official trailers, you will find the official one on the website. These are only classical races, the killkill mode is more impressive !

But the best thing to do would be to download it first, it’s free, you can play on 4 planets with 3 different ships. Of course, as usual, if you pay you can have more planets and faster ships. But lots of us only play on the free tracks, and we have fun like this too. But as I’m really addicted, I bought my licence :)

We’re waiting for you !

Best regards,

Snail (don’t hesitate to tell me if you try the game, I’ll be pleased to come and play online with you and give you tips :) PS : Any feedback about this game would be welcome :) 01spacebuger3iv.th.jpghell63od.th.jpgasterojam163648715ns.th.pnglaspicas1ee.th.pngsurfinbirds1ik.th.png

Hi everybody :) How are you, ready for the week-end ? Just a little word to tell you I'll open a "english speaker" game at midnight GMT (in two hours). So if you want to see what the game is like with many people, you're welcome :) PS : For you lazy people, here's the link to download the game (it's free). http://www.astronoid.net/en/accueil/index.html

Errrm, the term "Wipeout" springs to mind, but I'm guessing without the kick-ass beats.

What do you mean by "is this for real" ? Off course it is :) Did you have a look at the website ? Thanks for replying, I sometimes think I do all this for nothing...

Thank you ! Just a little post to tell you that after discussing of the game with lots of people, some said me the game was to slow...

Just wanted to tell you it’s because when you begin, you only have schoolship, then class AI (only 600km/h max), but after 20 races you can drive class X (nearly 2000km/h) or class III, which are more funny. It’s only because people need to learn how to drive those ships.

Have a look at the videos, they are all real ingame videos, and see if it looks slow ! lol [COLOR=black] [/COLOR]

[COLOR=black]Astronoid is the fastest multiplayer racing game !

Also, some found it boring because they raced alone or with only another person... The game looses a lot of its interest if there’s not at least 4 persons. Killkill mode with 8 persons is just great, thunder, speed and lightning everywhere ! Great adrenaline for me, but it’s normal, I love racing games ;)

So if you tried the game and found it boring (how can that be possible ??? lol), please have another try and come to play with us. There are peoples on servers right now.

Have a nice week everybody. [/COLOR]

All the Wipeout addict find Astronoid far better... but sure, it's the same kind of game, but really different.
