Particle's Asteroids!

restart game

Welcome to my asteroids game! It is a very primitive copy of the original. It doesn't even conform to the rules of the original!

Anyway, here are the rules:

You fly around, using the arrow keys for control (click on the applet for it to get focus if nothing seems to happen when you press the arrow keys). You try not to hit any of the rocks. You shoot by pressing the SPACE key.

LEFT arrow turns the ship left. J key can also be used for the same purpose.
RIGHT arrow turns the ship right. L key can also be used for the same purpose.
UP arrow turns the ship up. I key can also be used for the same purpose.
DOWN arrow turns the ship down. K key can also be used for the same purpose.

The smallest rock you shoot gives you 100 points. A little bigger one gives you 50 points, an even bigger one gives you 25. (smaller rocks are harder to hit) Each time you shoot, you waste one of your points. Whenever you get hit, you loose 1000 of your points.

The game is considered won if you have score above 1000, and there are no rocks flying around (i.e.: you shot them all down) The game is never considered lost, since the score can eventually grow high enough for you to win.

The game can be reset at ANY time by pressing the "refresh" button on your browser.

So, how did you like the newly modified rules? Anyway, this game has several modes of play. You can either play the regular way (rules above), or you can use these rules:

Fly around try hitting the rocks! Your goal is to get the lowest possible score before you destroy all the asteroids, and you win the game.

Anyway, go and try playing it (if you were bored enough to actually read this far!) If you would like to get your own copy, download it below:

BUGS: Does not work correctly under the JDK's appletviewer and probably not under Solaris (it works, you just can't use arrow keys; use J, I, L, M for motion control). Tested under IE3, Netscape 3, and up. Should work on any browser, if doesn't, please let us know.
