Astronite combines exploration and combat in a style often called Metroidvania. As with this genre, you start with very few powers and face a huge world. As you gain more powers and weapons you can access more of the world and take on ever more challenge enemies.
The result is a challenging game full of retro moments and inviting new areas. Like Hollow Knight, this is a tough challenge and you die many times. There are always secrets to discover in the levels and the puzzles are fair and logical.

Rated for younger players in the US. Rated ESRB EVERYONE 10+ for Fantasy Violence, Mild Language.
10+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Still, it's important for parents and guardians to consider the maturity required to process the game content. Younger players need really good resilience and perseverance to enjoy this. It's a tough game and embracing failure (and trying again) is a big part of the fun.
