Dash Galaxy in the Alien Asylum is an action game for the Nintendo Entertainment System, developed by Beam Software and published by Data East, released in 1990 exclusively in North America.

The player takes the role of Dash Galaxy, a space scout who has been captured by a hostile civilization. Gameplay involves navigating through a series of floors with several rooms each. Keys must be collected to progress to higher floors, and eventually, an escape ship. Dash's only weapons are a limited supply of bombs and remote detonators. Good timing is crucial to complete the game, requiring navigation of trampoline jumps and roaming enemies.

While the rooms are side-scrolling action puzzles, the floors have an overhead view, and include difficult block-moving puzzles that can fatally trap a player.
