I was never much cop at Asteroids as a kid, and I appear not to have improved with age :( Nice game tho. Wish there was more real estate to fly around in tho. It feels very cramped. A bigger screen would make no end of difference. And full screen too (I likes big screens :) ) Not sure what the lines where that kept appearing, nor how to invoke them. Overall tho, as a remake of a classic its not bad, with plenty of potential (loved how shooting repeatedly on the side of a rock spun it faster. nice use of physics there)

Ouch. My eyes :( The screen just kept flashing white and black and every now and again I got a glimpse of the maze. I assume this is not meant to happen like this. what I could see looked nice, but sadly unplayable for me ;(
Nice pacman variant. Once you get past the idea that you have to stick to the grid like in pacman its gets easier. I would have liked more ghosts tho as it doesnt feel as tho there is any immediate danger from them. On several occasions they have got stuck in the walls and just sat there shimmering. The second level was better than the first tho, more to collect etc. But it would have been nice to have some way of knowing I was going from 1 level to the next instead of just appearing there. And a few spot effects would have been nice too. Even with no effects a nice "spooky" atmospheric tune playing over the top of the game would have been nice. Overall not bad idea.
Oooh, I did like this one. The Graphics look nice and cartoony. The gameplay gave my wrist a pain tho so its means I played it for long enough. Never played the original but Ive played plenty of NES/Master system games in the past to know how they playout and this is spot on. A really nice remake, and with a bit of extra timne (two weeks is not nearly enough time) this could have been really REALLY good. Well done :)
Nice remake. Love the fuzzy screen effect. Would have liked to have seen more in the way of updating the graphics (fancy bat, various ball designs (football, tennis ball, fire ball etc) and perhaps some particle effects thrown in too .
Did get stuck in the infinite back-n-forth ball tho. Neither I nor the computer would budge so I was sat there for ever, maybe adding a bit of "nudge" on player 2's bat would avoid this.
And couldn't play online (as I have no friends ... well, none in the real world).
OK, tried the game and all I got was a blue screen that faded to a darker blue screen. This fades to a green screen then a grey screen. Nothing else Im afraid. Nice tune plays tho .... is it Scott Joplin by any chance ? I'm on Windows 7 as well if that helps.
Its a shame it didn't run, that video looks like it could have been fun. I've just uninstalled all my drivers for my graphic card and reinstalled them so I`ll give it another go, see if that helps.
Like the graphics (style) in this game. They fit the game well. Is this game meant to be for 2 player as the opposite side didn't seem to be doing anything and I won each time I played. And once I had won the game just went straight back to my desktop ;( A few spot effects would also have been nice. Overall it could be a really nice take on the Tetris / Columns / Match3 genre :)
Sadly I was unable to play this game. Once started it took 5 minutes to get to the play area and then it jerked at a rate of 1 frame every 3 seconds. A popup did eventually appear saying low FPS detected and I managed to eventually change from high setting to low, but even that wouldn`t allow me to play it. Shame, its probally a nice idea and nice game, I just couldn`t play it. Nice music tho.
Sadly there is no single player option so I had to play against myself which was no fun :( Once both players die nothing happens just a static screen so I couldn't progress. The graphics were also very minimal and basic :( Still, a game like this holds lots of potential (multi player springs to mind :) )
