Rocks in Space!
This game is loosely based on the Asteroids arcade
game: Shoot everything that moves. Beware of the
UFOs. They shoot back!
Large rocks will break up
into several smaller rocks when shot. The smaller rocks are likely to move faster, so
be ready to shoot them when they come screaming at you.
Small rocks will disintegrate
when shot; the debris is harmless.
- You get 200 points for shooting UFOs. The number of points you get
for shooting a rock depends
on their size. The smaller the rock, the more points you get for
You get an extra ship every
