Thanks a lot for the front page. Really pleased with that.

Just want to say in reply to a lot of reviews that this is NOT an asteroids remake. Please call it anything else, but I didn't even consider asteroids when making it, and further into the game has no resemblance at all. Thank you.

This is the result of an attempt to create a simple but colourful addicting arcade shooter. Inspiration was taken from a number of places as well as a lot of my own ideas and techniques. My main challenge in the creation of this game was getting things to run at the correct speed. I used some optimising tricks to cut effects if the game was running slow, and i think i manages to pull it off at a decent speed.

I hope you enjoy it. I plan on making more of the style of game in future but only bigger and better with more advanced effects and game play options. I might do a sequel to this one, not decided yet.

I got pretty unlucky with this. I managed to get everyone done by the time the fourth wave sign came up on the sign, but then I died. I don't think that's possible? Anyway, I was amazed at how difficult this game was. It seemed like everytime you broke something down, it flinged itself back at you! Those things were after me!

I still have to give you credit for having some really cool effects. I like how everything shined. It's not the most fun of games, but it did take some creativity. I always appreciate that. The music's pretty good too.



amazing

its fun and colorful !



nice

i like haha



excellent!!!

10/10 for this great game. great look, upgrades. very fun with a joystick too :3



Keyboard please!

The game is real fun, but it would be better when you can control the ship with the keyboard. That would be much easier!
