Asteroid Mining Company is a 2d arcade shooter prototype demo based on Asteroids.
In the game you play an employee of the Asteroid Mining Company, and your job is to collect ore from asteroids that you blast with the drilling laser on your Mk IX mining drones. Unfortunately your presence in the asteroid field has attracted the attention of aliens.
The aim of the game is to clear each section of the asteroid field by blasting the rocks and collecting the ore. Each zone you clear moves you further into denser areas of the asteroid field. Some of the asteroids release chemical elements that you can collect that have different effects on your ship, like adding a shield, boosting your engines and laser or replenishing your fuel.
This game is a prototype demo of an idea I had for a bigger project that I've been unable to complete due to other priorities, but I may go back to it and turn it into a bigger game eventually. As it's a prototype, there may be some small bugs or other issues. If you find a bug, would like to offer feedback, or you liked it and would like to see it expanded upon, drop a comment below..
HOW TO PLAY:
The keyboard controls are:
Left arrow = rotate left.
Right arrow = rotate right.
