On the Switch eShop, an Asteroids type game with up to six multiplayer or AI opposition and upgraded weapons added.

NintendoLife Review Conclusion

Developer Wild Rooster has offered a fast-paced, frantic multiplayer game that will have you yelling and screaming for all the right reasons. The anarchic Chaos Mode is an appreciable inclusion that, when combined with the quantity and quality of stages, earn Astro Duel the right to its deluxe name. Where it falls short on that title is the absence of a meaningful single player option (beyond duelling with AI), which the premium shift in price perhaps merited. Apart from that the retro-tastic soundtrack keeps all battles thrilling along with a smart, convenient control-scheme that makes any spare moment accessible for play. It's certainly one to consider for those seeking local multiplayer thrills on their Switch.

I got the game for full price and I am happy with it. If you have people to play local multiplayer then it is a steal at this price. Single player gets old pretty quick but that isn't what the game is really about.
Excellent multiplayer game
Can save a further £1 buying from South African eShop with fee-free card

Not even at £7.55 - let alone full RRP which is scandalous for a game of this ilk. You'd be far, far better seeking out Asteroids, the original and still be best. I can HIGHLY recommended Galak-Z also as another space shooter alternative.
