A simple remake of the 70s arcade classic Asteroids.
This was intended as a quick project to familiarise myself with parts of Godot which I hadn’t used so far. I wanted to get the whole thing done in a weekend, and that sort of happened if you just add up the hours. In practice, it was about three days of work spread over about a month. Still, it was a good exercise in just getting something done and covering all of the things that are needed to make a complete game. The majority of development time was spent on non-game elements such as the GUI!

The Godot project files are also available from the itch.io page. I’m releasing them in the hope that others find them interesting or helpful. I didn’t try very hard to be consistent or correct, but I think it’s reasonably well made. If you want to discuss the project, I can be found on the official Godot Discord as NCarter. I’m happy to give some pointers, but don’t expect detailed support!
