Direct Ascent - The Rocket Runner
A downloadable game for Windows and Android
Have you ever dreamed of flying real rockets, like the Saturn V or the Space Shuttle, only to not be able to convince Congress to give you enough money to do so?
Bypass Congress's unwillingness by acquiring Direct Ascent, a rocket runner with real-world rockets!
- Rockets from real life, each with their own ability!
- Obstacles, including asteroids, comets, space junk and more!
- Fun music accompanying each level!
- Lots of crunches and explosions!
- Achievements with associated rewards!
- A boss fight with a Dragon capsule!
- Left/Right arrows to go left/right, respectively
- Click or press space to use the rocket's ability (or throw the object you're holding in the boss fight in the snapshots)
Direct Ascent is finally in 1.0! Although the game is out of beta, subsequent updates will be made, so any feedback is still greatly appreciated. Also, if you want to, you can report a bug here.
