Asteroid Defender - Dr. Mo - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Asteroid Defender is a shooter where you move around a tiny asteroid defending it from waves of falling bombs. Spare pirates want to kick you off your asteroid and plunder its resources! Move left and right with the arrow keys or A/D, and aim and shoot with the mouse.
This was my first Ludum Dare compo, and I had a lot of fun! Source is included in the zip file. The .gmk is a Game Maker 7.0 project, code included, that requires the Pro version to compile. The .vge file is a VGM Music Maker module file for the title screen music.
I've written a postmortem now! Basically, I was going to add a lot of different structures that did different things, but the only structure that made it was the turret. You can read it at http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/2012/05/15/asteroid-defender-postmortem/
