Play: Astro Pirates

Try out my game from the Game Development course at ITU. Read more about the game under it’s project page: Astro Pirates. The game is designed as a 3vs3 multiplayer game. The game mode is a 1 team vs 1 team deathmatch, with up to 3 players on each team.

You can either try the game directly in your browser or download the game (Download link (windows only)!). To try the game in your browser click the large image with the play icon (Requires: Unity Web Player). The controls are described right below the play picture.

Play in Browser:
The game was designed to run in a higher resolution so the menu is a bit pushed together in the browser. For the best experience right click and choose Go Fullscreen.
