Asteroids!

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?
