Theme interpretation
It is arcade like in that you fly around shooting enemies. It is RPG like in that you gain exp points and level up as you do. It is resource collecting as you mine ore from asteroids.

I like the asteroids interpretation . I would have liked more packed stuff in the starting area to give you short and long term goals.

There were many features I did not get time to add. Life got in the way.

I'll keep that in mind, thanks.

You can find the game notes in the source code.

I really enjoyed this. It felt like Asteroid meets Elite Dangerous and it's brilliant. The controls feels just like it should. More content would have been nice, I was wandering in space trying to find things to do, ships to shoot at, asteroid to mines, etc. You have a really nice concept here, you should build on it!

Developer

Thank you! You can see what I had planed in the Game Notes in the source code. Life got in my way as it often does. It took about a weeks worth of time from me so I cut many of the features. 

I was thinking more of a top down version of Eve Online. What it reminded me of when I tried it the first time years ago.

I think I will turn this into a real game. Work on it in my spare time.
