Hey! To start this decade right, we believe Newgrounds should be ad-free for EVERYONE. For this to work, we need people who have the means to become paying supporters. For just $3 per month or $25 for the year, you can help this happen and get some nice perks!

For the month of February we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 219 people to reach our goal of 3,100 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in March!

2030 Asteroid Assault

Author Comments

Use the arrow keys to move, space bar to shoot, P to pause.

Take control of a drone fighter in corporate wars over asteroid mining rights in 2030. Sabotage enemy mining rigs and destroy their defenses to earn a cash from their competitors. You don't care who pays you, only how much you make. But be careful-operating in the asteroid belt isn't cheap. Damage to your ship will cost you.

Something a bit different! Plenty of room for development, but an interesting start!

Maybe the proximity mines could have a short fuse instead of instant detonation.
Would work well with a twin stick control system!

The game is not bad, but should be developed.

It's a really hard game. Aiming spaceships looks totally impossible. Every 3s i explode because i press left, my ship go left, i release it, my ship rotate backward... and i fail my shots.
And pressing at any time the spacebar is really annoying. You can do two options :
-> Automatic shoot (the ship will always shoot)
-> Using "Is pressed" event instead of "On pressed" trigger.

Nevertheless, the speed is interesting. Maybe some players will find it too fast, but in my opinion, going fast with a spaceship is really cool. Graphics and music are nice.

Continue like that ;)

Thanks for the feedback. I'll look at adding autofire instead of single shot. I started running out of events (and time) so a lot of features hit the cutting room floor. I'm getting better with Construct 2 (this is my second game with the program) and I'm still trying to figure a better way to control the ship. I tried asteroids style controls, and that ended in tears.
