it was strange yet fun


However there was a few things wrong with it. I had to right click and hit play to start it, and I gave you a three in sound cause the music cut out half way through the first level. Oh, and one more thing: The asteroids are too sensitive (no pun intended.) I was flying a good distance a way from one of them and suddenly it got sad. Work on the bugs a bit and you should have yourself a good game.

thanks for the suggestions. ill fix those. also the preloader was wierd to start so i'll try to fix it.

Buggy but promising.

A nice early work, however, as previous people have noted, there's a problem with how you have the preloader setup.

If you are (as you appear to be) using the Newgrounds preloader, this problem shouldn't be happening at all unless you've tried to change the code from the preloader.

(Guys, if you want to review this game, you can right-click and select "Forward" until the music starts, and the rest of the code works fine.)

The collision detection for the asteroids is clunky -- they record collisions when there's a good quarter inch of screen between my ship and them.

A few muted sound effects wouldn't hurt.

The music loop that plays during the race is, well, not good for gameplay -- wouldn't be bad menu music, but it's entirely too repetetive for the game itself.

Wrapping around the screen is something most games avoid for a reason -- it's not exactly intuitive.

What's the condition for ending the race? Number of asteroid collisions? Time spent? What?

But mostly, your code is solid and you show promise.

Umm, yea, I had the same problem.

The game won't load. I can't really score you. Maybe you should fix that to start off.

Loading problem...

The game won't load, the bar goes a little bit then just stops. Closed it out after about 5 minutes...
