Nova Drift Gameplay Preview – Asteroids on Steroids

Nova Drift by Chimeric, published by Pixeljam – March 27, 2019 (Early Access)
MSRP: $14.99 (Steam) – https://store.steampowered.com/app/858210/Nova_Drift/

Nova Drift is asteroids on steroids. You pilot a tiny ship on an endless run trying to survive whilst fighting enemies that increase in difficulty.

All seven ships surrounding the center ship are my drones. Go forth my drones!

As you progress throughout the game, you unlock abilities and upgrades to your ship. My personal favorite are the drones. The drones attack enemies for you and many of the upgrades increase their effectiveness at clearing enemies.

You get to pick from a wide variety of randomly selected upgrades each time you level up.

The available abilities unlocked and upgrade paths are randomly determined each time you level up. You can pick only one each time so some coherent strategy is required to make sure you can survive for long as possible.

Overall Nova Drift brings some nice twists to the classic asteroids formula, making it enjoyable to pick up and play at anytime.
