Asteroids Reloaded

by tGiant - Mini LD Entry

Well here you go.
After 2 days of very hard and dedicated work I am kind of done.

Meet, Asteroids Reloaded. A clone of the old Atari game.

I am making use of the high score service you provided.

Left = Left Arrow
Right = Right Arrow
Thrusts = Up Arrow
Shoot = Space bar
Exit = Esc

Nice! very clean look with nice explosions. I like the spaceships, means you can't just camp. Awesome with an in-game leaderboard!

The game hung/crashed a couple of times but then it worked fine - not sure what the issue was. Good work!

Btw, it's now on the leaderboard page:

Hi there.
Yeah, thanks man. And thanks for the service.
Anyway you can add filter code to the getHighScores to not return duplicate username entries only the highest?

tGiant, now you can add unique=true to your getHighscores call and you'll only get the highest score per player-name!

Very smooth visuals and gameplay! Great work!

Might be a bit easier to play if the bullets from both the player and the UFOs were slightly bigger.

Well done! Minimalistic arcade visuals and nice simple gameplay. I agree with the person above that the bullets could be a tiny bit bigger :)

Also nice ingame leaderboard!

Nice, very arcade-ish. It also reminds me of TerraFire.

It is Asteroids all right! A very faithful recreation, could have used some new mechanics for extra excitement.
Well done, nonetheless.
