    Nice work @heathclose, I love the classic asteroids style game and I prefer the original one's scale, but perhaps with some of the colouring style from the current version. I did an asteroids style shooter a couple of years back Asteroids & Planets Clash and I think my biggest mistake on that app was I made all the graphics too big and I think that reduces the excitement of the game, because there are fewer places to move your character to. So I reckon a hybrid between the two version you showed in your video and definitely slow your character down a little, perhaps add a little air drag to make the character more fluid. Looking good though, good luck with it.

    You can try looking at some other games such as Thunder Raid or even Thunder Strike if you really wanna dwell deep into space shooters :) Hope this helps

    Thank you everyone for the awesome feedback. I will keep ALL of it in mind... it sparked ideas to include... things to change... games for the future even... I really like the idea of releasing both styles... everything else I will use to tweak the current version and maybe go minimal or even pixel in the next one. (or hidden levels of retro goodness in the current one!) Thanks again.. will post again in the future. If you have more insight, keep it coming!

    Some quick tweaks following feedback...
    might increase drag still
    might decrease asteroid size in general still

    @heathclose, are you using that female voice-over for your game? I only ask as you mentioned it was the voice from the ships computer, but it sounds like the voice of an explainer video rather than a computer. Do you have audio tool (DAW) to be able to tweak it a bit? I reckon it could sound much better.

    The ships computer "installs" at the beginning of the game in a ship you escape in... then begins to guide story and gameplay with snippets like the one in the above video...

    what kind of tweaks would you make to it?

    Hey @heathclose, here are a couple of ideas. The first 3 are computerized versions of your audio sampled from your YT video and the 4th is me saying your line and then effected, just to give you an idea.

    very interesting... the first one gave it more space with that verb type effect... I might make it sound more like that to give it the space of a voice coming over speakers in the cabin of the spacecraft... thanks for the idea and the legwork on that... appreciate that very much ;)

    You're better off asking them in the forums. If I don't have the answer, maybe some one else does. I keep getting private messages from people wanting help, but more than half of them could get answered with a forum search. I comb the forums and read EVERY new post... so if I can help, I will on the forums... and if I can't... someone else might be able to. That being said, you're welcome to private message me through the forums.
