Stardust is an action game with a Sci-fi theme. It was released worldwide in 1995 and is available on the DOS, Amiga, and Atari ST platforms.
The game was developed and published by Bloodhouse Ltd.
Stardust is a classic multidirectional shooting game set in outer space. The player needs to destroy any asteroid or any other hostile space
objects in sight. The game is divided into five gaming modes or worlds and has 30 levels. At each level, there are different kinds of Asteroids
to destroy, which are of different colors, with each color representing a specific characteristic.
The Yellow ones are the most challenging; destroying them can take great effort. The grey ones on the other hand disintegrate quite easily.
However, the player must also save themselves from getting vaporized by a hostile alien ship. There is no specific order in which the levels need
to be completed, the player can choose to play any level at any time during the game. However, there is a showdown with a guardian after one
completes the sixth level of any world. To shoot, the player has six kinds of weapons at their disposal. Powerups and weapon upgrade options are
available for destroying a sufficient number of alien ships. Other bonus objects include bombs, shield upgrades, enhancements, and also extra lives.
There are also 4 tunnel levels, apart from the regular gaming levels. These tunnel levels are explicitly designed for the player to gain extra lives.
These tunnel levels are quite different from the regular levels, where a player needs to pass through a tunnel, destroying as many enemies as possible
while dodging the counterattack.
Bloodhouse Ltd. was a development studio formed by people from the Finnish Amiga demo scene. Only a few years after the initial start-up it merged with Terramarque Ltd. to form Housemarque Ltd.
