Long time no post! I have been rather busy with the outside world. Along with doing a lot of other things. Soon ill be posting more on some small projects I have been working on, so here is the first.

Basically a recreation of Asteriods (but different!) Currently no levels, or scoring just a death match you verses a bunch of enemies space ships and Asteroids!

I created this in response to games and there lack of ability to understand players. Sometimes simple game play is better than overly complicated. Even a 2D game can be fun! What kills games goes beyond this into politics of business that if game owners and developers actually made solid business plans they would find and endless supply of players.

Enough about that... This game I found myself returning to so many core math skills and even renewing my memory on Trig, Calculus, Physics, Geometry, and of course Alegbra. In a high end this game can do well over 200,000 calculations per second which back ten plus years ago this would not even be feesible. 


A: "Left"

W: "Forward"

D: "Right"

Spacebar: "Shoot"
