Astral Ascent update 1.2

Astral Ascent just issued a new version 1.2 update.

There are a few notable things here, including 20 new Hero Spells and PvP Arena in local co-op mode. Other aspects include telescope offline working everywhere now, various small changes, and more.

The full rundown is as follows:

Major Features
  • PvP Mode: Added a option for players to fight each other in a duel during co-op runs. You can start a duel at Andromeda’s bar by interacting with the new Duel’s altar.
  • 20 new spells: 5 new spells per Hero
  • Telescope now works offline. We made this change to make the feature accessible for players in some areas that had issues connecting with the Telescope server. Telescope should also work now on console as well
Small Features
  • Cetus Cavern now has 4 categories instead of 3, the fourth one will always be the random one (Nebulous Choice)
  • Slimes will now change direction toward nearest available enemy when bouncing (if they have a line of sight to them)
  • Sparks now bounce multiple times even if no enemies around (make it stronger on bosses) + visual improvement
  • Effect descriptions can stack into different columns if too many elements are displayed while checking spells
  • Feathers on Pavo’s ruins will always be of a higher level after sacrificing health 3 times (globally)
