About Super Stardust HD

Super Stardust HD is not just the original Stardust game in high definition. Each level consists of a planet, which the player must pilot their spaceship around while destroying all hazards and enemies. As soon as you destroy all enemies, you complete the mission and move onto the next planet. The spaceship has three different guns which all work differently. One is more powerful, yet leaves dangerous asteroid fragments hanging around. Another is less powerful, yet vaporizes asteroids so no remains are left. There are no current details on the last gun. Everything is upgradeable via power-ups that are scattered throughout each level.

We like

  • Vivid atmosphere and colors
  • Control schematics
  • Entertainment value

We dislike

  • Co-op involves less mobility
  • Not enough modes
