A clone made by @mccolgst

Press Z to start or to fire

Left and Right Arrows to aim ship

Up Arrow to thrust

Still new to game development, and I didn't realize how much I was getting myself into by making this 'simple' clone! Learned a bunch of cool stuff about geometry and a lot of cool and interesting features in pico8 (like how the sin and cos functions work) Very fun!

I feel like the asteroids are scared of me when I blow them all up and keep firing at the end of the level. Heheheh... so low key and does what it needs to do. I really do like the simple explosion effect. Perfect for its aesthetic. But yeah, the asteroid respawn(s) happen only after the player's shots are gone. So I am making it a feeling.

Funny how the screen shake gives Asteroid a "modern" feeling!

Thanks for the feedbacks! :) I had a lot of fun making this game and I learned so much.

Love this! Any chance of adding the "Shield" (Holding the DOWN button) from Asteroids Deluxe?

Hi. Great work. Like the accuracy of your clone. I'm new at this and on my learning path. I realy like to know how you generate this rocks.
If I am right you use this asteroid_shapes as basic instruction for drawing the lines. Bit I do not understand your algorithm. Maybe you can explain what this part of the code does: asteroid.shape=flr(rnd(#asteroid_shapes[asteroid.w]))+1 ?

Has anyone a good tutorial source for this kind of gemotric canvas stile drawing ?
