Your only goal is not to get hit by the asteroids and survive.
Shoot them down before they hit you!
Remember those old days when you used to sit and play "Asteroids" for a really long time? Before all those fancy new games arrived?
Well, we have the solution!
We have created a game based on the old Asteroids game!
Come on into our bit-inspired game and shoot some asteroids!
This is a retro arcade action game in the vein of the classic space shooter Atari Asteroids (1979). If you are feeling nostalgic for old school, coin-op like, blasting action then Alsteroids should give your trigger finger a work out! If you like classic shoot em ups like Space Invaders, Galaga, Tempest or Phoenix then you should enjoy this.
HOW TO PLAY:
This game is an endless shooter. Your objective is simple - stay alive as long as possible by shooting and avoiding wave after wave of asteroids ... your reward: a high score and bragging rights on the Google+ leader boards.
Your ship can be rotated through 360 degrees and can fire photon torpedoes (up to four on screen at a time). Large asteroids can be broken into two medium size ones, which in turn can be shot into two smaller ones. A wave is over when all asteroids have been cleared.
Beware of the saucers! The large type are easy to hit and fire inaccurately, the smaller saucers are different story... they move faster, are harder to hit and also become devastatingly accurate as the game progresses.
You can use your ships thrusters to move out of the way of an incoming asteroid. Beware of thrusting too much as there is no inertia in space and you will have to correct your trajectory to stop!
If you find yourself in a no-win situation, you can hit the Hyperspace button - this will transport your ship to a random position on screen. Beware, Hyperspace is a dangerous option as your ship can transported into an asteroid. Also the Hyperspace drive fitted to your ship is a prototype - it has an annoying tendency to randomly blow up!: destroying your ship. The more you use it the more likely this is to happen.
~ Designed for tablets and phones!
~ Vector Graphics (HD) option : This method of drawing the screen is more accurate and closer to the original Atari Asteroids Coin-op. It is the recommended option for tablets and phones with High Definition screens.
~Raster / Bitmap Graphics (SD) option: This method of drawing is faster and also looks better on lower resolution devices like phones. It should be used if the frame rate is dropping below 60 fps on your device
~ Multiple Control Layouts : Button, Joystick and Tilt.
~ Parallax Background : on or off.
~ Google+ Leader-boards
~ Haptic (rumble) effects : on or off.
~ Show FPS : on or off.
~ No coins needed!
I hope you enjoy this blaster from the golden age of arcade gaming past - the1980s!
During an exploring mission, you find yourself lost in a dangerous asteroid belt
that can destroy your ship on contact.
Your spacecraft is equipped with a long range laser cannon and the ability to jump to hyperspace.
The only thing you can do to survive is to destroy each rock one piece at a time.
By the way you are also in proximity of an enemy alien world, beware to the saucers...
A faithful porting of legendary arcade game for the nostalgic and those who had not been born yet.
Being called ASTEROID Hunter is equal to be called a legend.
Border miners brave enough to catch whole asteroids are either crazy, sentenced criminals or damn bold bunch. Mostly all of it, in given order.
Alone in darkness, just you and the rocks. Harassed by pirates and junk looters. Operating nuclear charges strong enough to move an asteroid. One mistake and you are gone … ALWAYS watch your back!
Then haul the ore back, collect money, improve ship, spend few sleepless nights in a bar and head back into the darkness. Into the pit.
For humanity sake …, pay your debts by helping others. Bring them ore from dirty outskirts so they can build something beautiful. Something you keep hearing about, but it's not for you. Not for you until you have paid for what had you done. High toll paid in sweat and blood. Do you DARE to do the real work?
