Shoot Dem Asteroids

by Darkcoder - 48 Hour Compo Entry


- WASD to move
- Space to shoot


- Your ship's gun will overheat, so try to fire in bursts.
- It's easier to defend Earth if you stay near it
- The red arrows around you ship point to asteroids

Note: There is no way to win this game, you just shoot asteroids until you die :)

well that certainly was a fun little game :p A bit hard to control, but fun none the less.

I really enjoy controls like this! Getting the hang of them is a lot if fun. Like that I'm fighting against gravity all the time. Only lasted 92 seconds, but it was a fun 92 seconds!

Very hard to control the ship - made it a little frustrating. Otherwise, quite fun, and it looks very nice. More of a plot would help. I liked the shrinking and warping planet.

I like classic arcade games, and it was fun. Saying that though the controls were really difficult. Also, at one point an asteroid pinned me against the planet and I couldnt move. Still, a fun game!

Also, having some kind of end goal, like X asteroids destroyed would have been nice. Maybe, asteroids drop minerals and after X minerals you get a defense outpost at one corner of the planet. Once you get four of them the planet is safe.

Really hard to master the controls.

I agree with everyone else that the controls take some getting used to, but the graphics and camera movement are really nice! Also, I would have liked to have been able to destroy the planet myself.

And I think the world could have been a little bigger.

Overall an interesting design. It needed a bit more game testing. It was really difficult to control the ship and navigate around your little world.

Very fun! It was challenging! Great graffics, I really like them!

Maybe a nice background music could be a thing to add.

Very nicely made, especially liked the graphics. My only thing was I think that you shouldn't overheat as quickly. Either way though, very good job!

Controls are realistic which is cool, but it's frustrating because it's so damn hard to destroy the asteroids. My suggestion would be to make them one-shot-kill. I don't mind drunken-rocket-flying around space as long as I can do it for more than 2 minutes at a time. ;)

Nice SFX/GFX and controls, though!

Great premise, sound and graphics, just which the controls were a little tighter, other than that though, well done!

I like the basic idea, the physics work, the graphics are good and the sounds fit. But the controls make it really unplayable to me.

Cool graphics and audio. But it's even harder to control than the original asteroids.

Hard to control the ship besides that everything is OK. My high score 221

I actually really liked the controls too. Was half the fun of the game
