Mr.plow for posting youtubr. Use the youtube tag on the editor and paste just the video code, no need for the full html.

edit:hmm maybe the forum is broken since mines are not showing either, they were a few weeks ago.
By the way, the video looks awesome! I love the way the enemies capture crates!

Thanks Erico!

I plays smooth and hoping to add more variety into it...

For PC version - hoping to add a two-player co-op.

Just to been aware, we have this issue today:
https://developer.android.com/guide/topics/display-cutout

For portrait games, you should a least possible to add top/bottom letterbox to avoid the issue in a option.

For landscape games, make sure we can move the status/controllers longer center to the screen by a similar option.

Or status etc might got cutted, like device like mine.

PS. except that, looks pretty nice.

It looks like a nice remake of Asteroids.

With your rendering system, you can adapt many Vectrex games (with work of course).

PS : Don't watch Vectrex games on an emulator, the rendering is not at all the same as on a real Vectrex console.

Thanks SnooPI

Actually the Asteroids in this game are meant as a distraction to disrupt the player, and cause no ship damage...
...its a mix of Asteriods and a few other games...main aspect is too protect the energy crates.

Yes, I love the look of the Vectrex and after playing it at retro event and the real asteroids arcade I did a Vectrex like Asteroids called...Vectoids

Looks quite (and sounds) quite authentic, very well done!  :good:
Cheers,
