I've tried a lot of buttons on my keyboard and couldn't get it to work, the instructions fly by in a second so that's just poor design. Besides all that it looks like a normal asteroids game, so probably nothing original.

Not that great

It was kind of fun after I figured out how to read all the controls, but it wasn't awesome. Plus the whole jumping up and moving down instructions thing was awful.

JudgeDredd responds:

Thanks FP. The jumping menu is faster than it used to be (CPU speed) but it seemed worthwhile trying anything new at the time. I don't plan to use Num-Pad keys ever again thou! :)


the game had nice graphics, but you should add some sound FX, and it was hard to control. you should change it so you can use the arrows to move the the space button to shoot.

JudgeDredd responds:

thanx. it has SFX (the intro size sets the volume). Sadly Macromedia have used the arrow keys (in conjunction with the CONTROL key) which makes a Flash movie step forward and back (like right click) so finally I settled just on ergonomic keys ;O)

IT WAS OK................

hard to control but ok game
