AstroMines is a 3D space shooter in which you blow up asteroids to earn points.

You can register with us and we'll keep track of your scores, and you can even earn achievements. The scoreboard will show you your scores, and when you click the 'online' button, it'll show you all the high scores saved to our database. See if you can top our scores!

In Survival Mode, you're flying through space with asteroids continuously coming at you. You'll have to keep blowing them up and dodging them as they split into smaller asteroids and get faster and faster!

In the mini-game we included, you play a twist on a classic! If you were into the old one, you just might like this version.

Unfortunately, we weren't able to do as much as we'd wanted to do with the game (no missions, had to scrap the storyline, fewer objects in space, things like that...) - largely due to time and Flash performance constraints. But hopefully you'll enjoy what's there! If you like it, be sure to say so - we just might include that stuff in a sequel!

And remember! Gold asteroids are worth 5 times as much.

Eh. needs work

Eh. Thats all i can say about it. The asteroids are hard to see and depth of field is missing except for the aiming. Aiming is really hard. Not impossible but hard. The sound effects need some work. Its a good start to a 3-D shooter but lacks most of the components. Extensively long tutorial for such a simple game.

pritty good

its ok but its hard to aim
