astroids

i made this small game while i was bored. for most of you, you already know what this game is! if you don't, then you need to be smacked upside the head due to not knowing your video games. i recreated ASTROIDS out of sheer boredom, and i decided it looked ok, so i'm releasing it to the public! lucky you! anyways, it's very simple. all you have to do is shoot the astroids and don't collide with the astroids, and that's it! it's pretty much a minigame, so if anyone wants the source code, just ask! i'll e-mail it if you want!

controls:

up= move foward in the direction you're facing
down= reverse
left= turn left
right= turn right
spacebar= shoot

some useful tips for playing...
1. be sure to move around! you're bound to get hit if you stay in one place!
2. moving in reverse can get you out of the tightest of situations!
3. you cannot turn extremely fast, so i would suggest moving around and slowing down, then shooting.

my highest score was 3080 (i only tried out the full version twice)
post your scores!

and please, give me any suggestions so that i can make it better, or give me ideas for NEW GAME MODES! i'm thinking about that, so post me your suggestions as well!

Heh, this was actually pretty cool. It had a very classic feel to it. Anyways, good work!

You should add an adventure mode with levels and a story and all that stuff. Just a suggestion.

Excellent, I love retro games, and man did you pull it off, the "Vectrex" looking graphics made it all the better. 10/10 for Classic/Replayability

Going retro? Keep it accurate.... no UFO objects in your game. There was no "reverse" in the original. The ship never stops (not that it would in space) but you can't turn and have it follow. This is a 9?!? Maybe a 4. Hyperspace?
