Hi Folks!! this is the game that I'm working right now, I'm doing with a minimalist and sketchy style because im not an artist hehe!!.

is like the classic Asteroids, but with more features like power ups (weapons upgrade, weapons speed, shields, big shoots) also with boss battles.

This is the first post of the dev blog of this game, i will post upgrades and new apks in order to test until I finish the game.

Here is a litte Beta gameplay video and other video with the big shoot demostration.

What comes to mind is that there are plenty of asteroids clones out there and shmups in general - how to set yourself apart? I think a funny thing to have would be actual Arial Asteroids - instead of these rocks have letters kinda stuck together and as you shoot them they break apart. Additionally small letters could fly off as debris, and, perhaps, your weapons could be symbols or such (period shots, exclamation point missiles).

That would add a funny edge to an otherwise grey (heh) game perhaps.

Hmmm, it says:

Sorry – nothing to see here.

There may be several reasons:

The app that you’re looking for doesn't exist
or
the app developer is not currently running a test
or
you are not eligible to participate in the testing programme.

If you received the link to this page from someone, we recommend that you contact them for more information.

Click here :D https://play.google.com/apps/testing/co ... lAsteroids

Well, I think you can improve a few things:

1. You should definitely use a different logo when your game is loading
2. Does your game is supposed to be full screen?
3. You should add way more kinds of asteroids, so it does no look like all are the same
4. What about some enemy ships?

Hmm, but it's just my opinion! :P
Good job!
