In Astropocalypse you take control of a hotshot meteor bent on destroying the galaxy.

Use your directional pad to steer your meteor buddy and ram it into nearby planets in the current solar system.

Press the Z button to boost forward quicker at the expense of using more energy.

Each destroyed planet gives you back energy useful to prolong your path of destruction.

Use your radar to track planet orbits, but also pay attention to the red curves in the arena, follow them to find orbiting planets.

Additionally, ram into the sun at the center of the solar-system to gain back energy and keep wrecking those helpless planets.

Once all planets are destroyed, it's time to go for the finishing blow... destroy the sun!

Pay close attention to your energy levels at all times, once it's depleted it's... GAME OVER MAN!

This game was made for the AGBIC JAM 2021 and was inspired by an awesome famicase created by @SkinnyShips.

Note: There's still quite a few features and tunings I want to do with this game. Stay tuned.

Oh wow! This is awesome! You even made an arcade marque for the game when I'm thinking of making a Pico-8 bartop arcade!

For that Arcade feel though, could there be a title screen and/or an attract screen be made?

I just had an idea!

What if there was a rare power up in the game that turned the meteor into an invincible comet for a short period of time?

The meteor would turn blue and get really fast as he can insta kill a few planets in a few seconds.

@SepticLemon totally... I plan to keep adding features to this one, all suggestions welcome! Also, that awesome marquee comes from the original famicart made by @SkinnyShips for "A Game By Its Cover".

@JackJack31363: Thanks, I'll try to add some variety in the near future. I'll take broken marriage as above average XD

This game is amazing and I love it and why hasn't it been given more recognition!?!?!?

Seriously, though. This game looks amazing and is so fun. Would destroy an entire star system again.

Why doesn't the energy meter fill up? it never gets to 60. Never.

nice game, may I suggest some kind of thing that depletes your energy or something that slows you down to balance out the powerups that septic lemon suggested?

like some sort of enemy besides the sun

This is a fun little game; I hope you continue to work on it when you have the time.

this is a fun game. here's something the game doesn't tell you, once you destroy all the planets and head for the sun, be careful because it'll launch fireballs at you so pay close attention to the fireballs as you're going for the sun!
