Innovative take on the asteroids style, but I found it difficult to know where to go to shoot particular asteroids or ships.

It looks very good, but it is certainly difficult to tell what height you are at and what you are shooting towards. I like the perspective so I don't think that should change, but an indicator such as a laser sight would be useful.

This is kinda plain. I liked the 3Dness, it adds variety, but nothing changes in the game itself. You should've made difficulty increase over time.
By the way, the embed player works poorly. It's here, but it's only half as high. And when I toggle fullscreen, clicking in-game makes it toggle back.

Very nice graphics. The gameplay is too simple, and it's hard to tell where are you aiming.
Also, the music volume is too low.

Thanks for great feedback :) I'm aware of the aiming problem. On my defence it wasn't poor game design, but lack of knowledge to implement ray casting.

An okay game with nice music. I don't quite like the mixing of mouse controls and keyboard ones.

it seems like a great take on the game of asteroids just find it difficult if i am aiming or going to hit the rocks. Good job on your entry.

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.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
