OpenAstroMenace is a 3D scrolling shoot 'em up arcade game, developed by Viewizard. It's based on the C++ game AstroMenace which was released in February 2007 as shareware for Windows and freeware for Linux.[1]

The game is basically a space shooter with the addition to buy new weapons, systems and hulls in order to improve your ship. You can earn money and experience points by destroying enemy aliens or pirates on each level. The experience points represent the "score" which makes your skill comparable to other players.
