It wasn't until I finished it that I figured out how the theme applied to the game. I really enjoyed the mechanic of chipping away at something to get to what's inside. Strong work.

I enjoyed this !
Some more game mechanics and this could be a winner !

Like you mentioned, an objective would make this much better, but the art, controls, and physics are really nice!

Pretty good controls! I like the layers on the asteroids. You can't take damage though.

Could see this getting really interesting with a bit more
time for more game mechanics. Nicely done.

It's very pretty, and the way you have to destroy the asteroid cores is cool, but it really needs some kind of goal and difficulty.

I like the stronger explosions you get from the center of the asteroids

This game is sweet. I figured out that your lazers can bounce off of each other. clearing the asteroids and filling the room with lazers is it's own reward for winning :3

Really pretty and with a bit more time, would've been a great game. The only thing I didn't like was the steering mechanics; I would've preferred if it was more like asteroids in that spinning the spin doesn't effect velocity

Sweeet. Love the design of the ship. I always prefer a gamepad for this type of thing.

cool game - too bad there are no objectives or enemies - nice job

Very arcadey. I feel like I should be playing this on a cabinet in a dark room smelling of pizza and quarters. Nicely done. The ship looks cool, and the geometric-looking asteroids keep the screen looking interesting.

Loved the graphics! The collection mechanic made for an interesting variation.

Really nice graphics and tight controls!

I like your take on the theme - chipping away at a surface rather than going underneath it. The game is cool and the flying and shooting feels solid. Would like some actual objectives, though.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

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.
