An Asteroids homage with a left twist.

What a situation! You're stuck in an asteroid field, but your ship will only turn to the left! Power down on the throttle, mash your lasers, and put your reflexes to the test!

Collect all 15 ships! Every ship has its own stats: speed, spin, acceleration, drag, and laser attributes. Remember, you need to use your newest ship if you want to unlock the next one!

Z: Throttle
X: Laser

Left / Right: Select ship on title screen when unlocked
Up / Down: Toggle palette

Alternate Controls:

I should mention that the sprite rotation code in Lefty is from Jihem's sample cart!

I like the BONUSES you can win when you play. You don't normally see this in PICO games.

Nicely done !

Thanks dw817! I had a lot of fun balancing the different ships. Not sure how many folks have gotten to the 15th ship, but it's pretty fast. :P

I love the unlockable ships and the selectable color palettes. Reminds me of Downwell in that regard. Very fun take on the classic game.
