Common Questions

Q: How do I move around that blasted ship?

A: Quite easily once you get the hang of it.
Just touch somewhere on-screen and hold your finger there and the ship will fly to your finger.
Once it reaches your finger, it will continue to orbit around the point at which you are touching.
You may also want to try boosting, which is done by swiping quickly anywhere on-screen. The ship will boost in the direction that you swiped.

Q: I reeeeealllly want to blow things up with bombs. How do I do it?

A: Placing bombs is even easier than moving.
All you need to do is quickly tap somewhere on-screen with both fingers and the ship will place a bomb where it is.

Q: I downloaded Asterock Lite for Windows but it's not running, what do I do?

A: You may have missed installing OpenAL which Asterock requires for sound.
To install it, re-open the archive or re-download Asterock then run "OpenAL Installer.exe" from within it (all default settings should be fine).
If Asterock still doesn't run, please feel free to contact us and we'll try our best to get it running for you.

Q: I'm playing Asterock Lite on my Mac but I don't have a two-button mouse, how do I place bombs?

A: We built special support into the Mac version for just this occasion.
As well as placing bombs by clicking both mouse buttons, you may also place a bomb by hitting the 'B' key on your keyboard.
