Asteroia is an arcade-style game where you have to defend the earth from incoming asteroids. Instead of simply shooting them though, you'll have to use a giant 'magnet' to change their trajectories. This way you can throw them out of the earth's gravitational field or mash them against each other.
Gameplay only uses the mouse. In every new wave the amount of asteroids and their frequency of appearance increases. Also new types of asteroids and bonuses will be introduced. There is no way to finish the game, you'll just have to survive and accumulate a high score.
This game was originally created using Game Maker for a YoYo Games competition with the theme 'save the planet'. Although not many people played it back then, I later submitted the game for DGDARC's Game Development Awards and won!
