astro break.png Ludum Dare entry Astro Break plays like something that came straight out of an arcade cabinet. It's a little bit like a game called Super Obliteration, which in turn was a mixture of Asteroids and Pang. Run around the edge of a tiny planet, dodging and shooting asteroids, which split in two and keep doing so until they are small enough to be destroyed. Sometimes asteroids will drop fruit, shields or power-ups.

It gets the arcade feel just right but it lacks variety. There only two power-ups available: the spread gun and the auto cannon. Furthermore, although each successive wave becomes more difficult, you may find the lack of reward off-putting.

You can play the game here.
