So, after nearly 2 years since the last update, I just released a new version of Blasteroids.

The focus was on replacing the UI with something a bit better, as well as adding 4 new "cheat codes" to give the gameplay some variety.

Oh, and remember this logo I mocked up nearly 3 years ago?

If any artists want to be of service, I could use a logo/title image. The game is going to be called Blasteroids, and I thought it would be neat if the "o" was a spiral galaxy. Kind of like this:

I finally made it officially:

Full changelog:

  • New “Cheat Codes” to vary play:
    • Bouncy Borders (bounce off edges of screen instead of wrapping to other side)
    • Never Miss (bullets don’t disappear until they hit an asteroid)
    • Rapid Fire
    • Tractor Beam (pull asteroids toward you when there are 10 or less on screen)
  • Added video settings (fullscreen or windowed at various resolutions)
  • New UI!
  • Asteroids now spawn in random positions instead of in predefined positions.
  • Game now accepts gamepad input for aiming/shooting.
  • Improved worldwrap to work correctly at lower framerates.
  • Preload some objects at beginning of game to improve spawn rate.
  • Cache some references instead of looking them up repeatedly.
  • Don’t count as two deaths if quitting while already dead.
  • Fixed World Wrap not updating after screen resize.
  • Tweetbot sends Tweets when achievements are unlocked.
  • Minor tweaks to various Tweets.
  • Other fixes and improvements.
