App description: Blastronaut is an epic 2d platform game complete with 32 incredible levels, 4 unique worlds and a cast of challenging enemies.

Sometime in the not so distant future, a young boy is marooned and alone in a mysterious alien universe. A boy that now has to be brave and become a man - Blastronaut is lost in space!

One year ago today, a curious rookie astronaut set foot on his first voyage with his fellow crew members. Little did they know what lurked in the deep pockets of space and one fatally wrong move separated Blastronaut from the rest of his crew, sending him spiralling into alien planets.

Now stranded, Blastronaut must navigate his way home through these foreign worlds and come up against his greatest fears. Far from an easy journey lies ahead of him and using all of his training he must jump, run and Blast his way through whatever stands before him. He will quickly realise that he is not alone and despite a cute exterior, a deadly enemy awaits him, trying to stop his every move.

He must survive and make it home and you have been chosen to help him. Will his new found enemies and alien world stop him, or will you help him on the long and hard journey back home to Planet Earth.

To be fair, it even looks jerky on the trailer :\

Yeah hate to say it but its in a poor state. I can't believe the dev allowed it out like this. Didn't any testers say its way too slow? Should be good if an updte smooths it out. But in its current state a big no no and that's coming from someone who loves platformers

What engine was this made with? It's clear in the video that it is choppy. Almost as if it was made with GameSalad or something similar. It has potential, but depending upon how it was made, I'm not sure it can be fixed. If it ever does get fixed, I'll certainly buy. Good luck to you, developer.

Hello I'm the Dev and yes I'm here :-) Thanks for all the comments as I said all feedback is welcomed. First off the trailer.. Its jerky because I filmed it in 60fps and when transferring it into iMovie it compressed it to 30fps No idea why in hindsight I should have recorded it in 30fps to begin with.

@repapermunky is correct it is made with Gamesalad and is pushing the limits of the engine/my skills with the engin. That said the guys at GS have been working hard on updating the engine and I already have a build on my phone built on the new engine that greatly improves the performance once testing is done I shall submit this as an update.

So thanks for the downloads so far and the comments that see the potential in this game Im committed to it and want to make it the best game I can.

BTW.. I'm now learning Unity ;-)

I saw the developer of the game also has made comments here before so I want to say ahead of time I want to give an impression that I want to bash the game, but the game has a number of serious bugs or unfinished aspects visible right from the start. Background moves separately from foreground in a strange way, when the screen isn't moving as the character walks back in the first level, background moves. There is no change if speed of jump when a block is broken, no sound for double jump, enemies keep shooting even when supposed to be killed and are falling off the screen. There are more but I am sure the developer knows it will need a lot of updates.
Visually it looks nice though.
