Tear a swatch of destruction through space in this action-packed shooter. Aim carefully with the targeting reticule as each successful shot charges the special weapons faster: each of which can turn the tide of battle as you blow your enemies to pieces.

Almost a twin stick shooter

Ascension has you piloting a spaceship and gives you control over the ship's turret which can be independently controlled. There are enemy spaceships which will come down the screen at you in preset patterns, as well as some kind of spheres that look like planets that you can also destroy. I'm not sure what exactly they're supposed to be.

Accuracy when dispatching enemies fills your special weapon, of which there are four. It seems like the special bar fills up too easily, at least on the Normal difficulty. Also the controls for shooting are a bit awkward. Unlike the typical twin stick shooter where you move the right stick and shoot, you control a reticle with the right stick. It's more like moving a mouse pointer around the screen and it just isn't intuitive and doesn't feel right. Also adding a slow scroll to the background image would've really given the feeling of motion.

Ascension has some cool ideas and very detailed and cool looking spaceships, but the controls really kept it from being as fun as it could've been.
