Astro Bouncer launches on Windows, Windows Phone, and Android

If you want to play a game that's easy and won't stress you out, go check out Astro Bouncer. It's a free casual endless game that's has just been released for Windows, Windows Phone and Android. The goal is simple. Bounce to collect stars, while avoiding the spiky aliens. Watch the official game trailer to see if it's your type of game.

There are two modes available: single tap or double tap. The single tap mode requires you to tap anywhere on the screen to jump. The astronaut bounces off the walls. The double tap mode gives you more options. You tap on the right side of the screen to jump right, and tap on the left side of the screen to jump left. Hitting one side of the screen teleports the astronaut to the other side. You need to avoid spiky aliens no matter what mode you select.

Before starting a game, you can select from four Astro characters. I prefer the one with the yellow goggles, but feel free to choose what you like. They each have different jet fumes, too.

Power-ups give you advantage in the game They'll be floating around, so you'll need to measure your jumps to reach them. Force Field shields you and prevents any damage. Magnetic Suit uses the force of gravity to attract nearby stars. Jet Booster makes you fly higher. Plasma Mine explodes and shoots enemy creatures.

You need to collect stars to earn points. Big stars are 5 points, while smaller stars are 1 point each. When you run out of lives, your current score is displayed next to the high score. You can tap the retry button to play again.

Even though Astro Bouncer is free to play, it is supported by ads. You can turn them off with an in-app purchase of $1.99. It's not a game that's going to blow you away, but it's easy and fun to play if you have a few minutes to spare. Check it out and let us know what you think in the comments!
