As you can all see the Astrox Wiki is going through a change.
This Wiki was originally created to document the game Astrox on Kongregate. Astrox now has a stand alone version which will be updated separately. To accommodate the differences, new tabs have been added to the navigation bar to accommodate information that varies by version on each tab.
Astrox is now on Steam, you can find it at this link: http://store.steampowered.com/app/414720/ On this site you may read more about the plans and the history of the game Astrox. Some detail about the game, not the internal parts of the game, but how to get it, what information exists about it etc.
The game has been on Kongregate for a long time. It has also been ditributed from the Authors site and other places like Desura. Desura is now history, and on December 1. 2015 at 5:36 early in the morning/late in the night the game was realeased on Steam. Already it has received great credits and it is well earned.
A few links to the game: Kongregate where the latest build is 60b
indiedb where the project started January 2015, some sites to Momoguru or Jaze Masula. The latest build is 62. Another place where Momoguru might be found is http://homeworld.guru/ and one for the nostalgic players http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/612705
More links... hmm missing for now, where could they have gone...
An article about the game history: http://www.indiedb.com/games/astrox-hostile-space-excavation/news/astrox-steam-kongregate-and-new-build
Some information in this latest section might be wrong or obsolete, and if so shout out or just simply fix it yourself. Now some info about the game on Steam. (The list is copy paste)
