This game is my interpretation of the all-time classic arcade game Asteroids. Although it plays a little differently, it has all the components of the original game. The rocks are stationary, but — if destroyed — split into two smaller pieces. You can either destroy the rocks via missles or by just flying right into them.

Controls

  • Left arrow key tilts the space craft to the left,
  • Right arrow key tilts the space craft to the right,
  • Up arrow key propels the space craft,
  • ‘Space’ launches a missle.
