Can you destroy all asteroids with just one shot? Because that's all you've got in this Asteroids-inspired puzzle game. That and a time limit. Oh, and watch out for the civilian ships. You're supposed to protect them, not destroy them!

Controls are simple:
WASD / Arrow for movement
Space to shoot
R to suicide / restart level

Made with Scirra's Construct 2 Free

i would have liked to see a short distance projection line or something, just to line up the first half a screen. Otherwise, it was an amusing challenge, and quite pretty. Well done.

Fun to play, although it took me some time to understand that I "brake" using S and not accelerating in the different direction.

Challenging yet soothing, quite an atmosphere.

It was good, but was a little difficult to figure out. It would have been nice to have a guide or something when shooting.

Wooo! Asteroids! The middle box is irritating as hell.

Nice little challenge, also somewhat impressive that it was done under the constraints of the free version of Construct.

Great concept. Very challenging. I didn't realize you could move until i was boxed in by other ships! Some of the layouts felt a bit random as well, like i just fired and hoped (maybe that's just me). Overall, very nice!

Neat take on the theme, but I'm not very good at it - I'm much better at shooting myself than all the asteroids

Nice twist on the classic asteroids! Fun and Challenging

That was fun! But very hard. Didn't really like that the controls were so hard to manage, there was enough challenge in figuring out the shot trajectory :). But great polished minigame here! One of the better ones.

Nice concept, but it could be much more fun with precise controls and instant restart.

Very good puzzle. A bit short.

Dude, awesome.

When I booted it up I was expecting a shitty asteroids game. As soon as I realised I only had one bullet I literally out loud (I'm talking to someone on skype as I'm playing) "Oh my god this is awesoooome".

I think the controls could be tighter, but well done for actually sticking to the theme. I've played so many "You only get one life" games that this is so refreshing.

I'm not great at it though, but I still enjoy it.

nice little puzzles

I'm agree with that "short distance projection line". I was confused about where the bullet goes. That the only one negative point for me, the rest, amazing and fun!

Hey guys, if you happen to return here, thanks for the feedback! :)

So far I've learned that an aiming line would be good, that some people miss the controls and that I should guide them better through the game.

Thanks again, folks! You're making this a great first Ludum Dare :)

smooth animation, like the glow very much. I shot myself and that was pretty amusing too! some sounds would have been cool - afxr is pretty good tool…. or some music. It was calming and contemplative, well done for finishing

Really nice game, loved the feel and logic of the puzzles. Some were just crazy, i'll shoot at this angle and hope something good happens, but all around a solid game.

A very cool take on the classic asteroids game, really love the geometry wars look too!

Spot on with the sound effects. Great gameplay and twist on a classic idea, I really enjoyed playing this.

It's a nice spin on the tried old classic, and once the civilian ship was introduced it got really hard really quickly. Fun and challenging - though maybe a little too challenging for me :P As others've said, a tracer line for the first screen or so would be a good addition.

I like the twist of the old asteroid game. Pretty solid work.

Neat little shooter/puzzle hybrid. The screen-wrap really makes you think about how to line up your shot. Getting killed by your own shot also adds another interesting level of complexity.

Dec 25, 2013 @ 9:51am

Nice concept, great application of the theme.

Very cool game, fun too! I loved the crazy redraw effects.

Dec 26, 2013 @ 6:30pm

This game is really cool, Really love it! I included it in my Ludum Dare Compilation video series, if you'd like to take a look

Started easy and quickly got very tough once civilians were introduced haha. Nice concept and cleanly done with simple graphics and easy to follow controls. Good luck!

Cool use of the theme! Nice twist on a classic game. The visuals and audio are appropriate and the gameplay is very challenging.

Wow great concept, dead on

Wow, that was really a spot-on use of the warping mechanic! The fact that you could get killed by your own bullet was really awesome xD
The only downside would be the shot had to be precise, and the control was really a bit loose for that.
Enjoyed it thoroughly.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
