Asteroid Outpost is a 2D tower strategy game. I call it a "Tower Strategy" game because unlike most tower defense games, you don't get resources from killing enemies. You have to mine all resources yourself, much like in a real-time strategy game. In this game, there is a balance between expanding to collect resources, and spending resources to defend those expansions. There are 2 resources in the game: Minerals and Power. You mine minerals from asteroids, and you collect power from a sun using solar panels. Everything in the game requires power, so you must keep your structures connected to a power source. Missions will vary, everything from collect some minerals, to stopping an enemy shipping lane.
