Hi All,

Just a quick message to let you all know about my first C2 creation, Meteor Blast!, a remake of the classic space shoot'em up Asteroids.

Thanks Dabbijo! Theres an update awaiting approval which improves a couple of things I didn't want to wait until v2 to implement. So hopefully version 1.5 will be out shortly.

Do the rocks never break into more than 1 piece?
I found the movement pretty tiring to get used to..
But overall, a decent clone of the original!

Good job :)

Hi Rory,

Yes, there are three stages of rocks, they start large, then you get a medium sizeed one then finally a small sized one, admittedly the smaller ones are more difficult to hit! The movement in the game is the same as the original Asteroids game, in fact I borrowed the code from one of the example scripts that come with Contruct 2, and it can take a while to master, I find small thrust movements are best and the use of turning in the opposite direction and applying thrust to slow down.. Practice makes perfect I guess! Glad you enjoyed the game :)

Nice little clone. If I could change anything I would make the ship rotate a bit faster, but I suppose the original game was like that. Also it would be nice to have a "thrust" animation and sound.

Thanks, I agree about the rotation, I will look at that for the next update, I used to have a thrust animation on the ship but I had a problem with it, I think I may have found the solution though so will look into putting that back in!

Thanks for your suggestions, I'm now publishing the latest version on the Chrome web store so for the latest version go to..
