Chasteroids - pdehaan - 48 Hour Competition Entry

Built with LOVE, bfxr for sounds, and Renoise for some simple music. Gameplay is super simple - you're being chased, try not to die.

The .love file should work with new versions of LOVE (http://love2d.org/), I'll try and package some platform specific binaries as well.

Was hoping to get some nice 'splody effects in there, but work forced me to restrict the amount of time I could spend on this.

I like the audio quite a bit (and survived 109.7 seconds).

Pretty neat idea! And pretty fun... It did wear out a little while in, as I basically could have gone forever. Perhaps a difficulty ramp-up could have helped.
Still smooth, functional, decent graphics, and fun.

The frame rate started stuttering after a minute of play. Still it is a fun concept, and well implemented.

Great concept! I liked it even better when I realized that the asteroids don'T hurt you and I started to "hug" them while avoiding bullets. I agree that the difficulty should ramp up as you go along.

Too simple (both in terms of difficulty and gameplay), but it works.

That was a hoot! Love the retro vector graphics. The physics were good. Music was good (if a bit repetitive). Probably my favorite game so far. Nice job!

Very nice work. Nice idea, solid implementation, nice music. As others have said, some difficulty ramp-up would have been welcomed but as it is it still provides a nice experience. Liked it very much.

Fun little game, perhaps a tad too easy which could have been rectified by causing damage when hitting the asteroids. Good job :)
