This game was created during the first semester of the second year of my Games Development course as an introduction to the programming language “Lua” and the framework “LOVE2D”.

The aim of the game is to clear all the asteroids in the level, but the catch is that your ship can only fire one bullet at a time, and the said bullet moves in the same direction as your ship.

I had a lot of fun making this one, as the concept was born from a glitch that occurred while messing about with the framework. In fact, I like this game so much I intend to try and remake it in Unity at some point in the future. This game also happens to be one of the most difficult I’ve made, since the asteroids move around the screen pretty quickly, and at random trajectories. Good luck getting past level 5!

The link to the repository can be found below, if you want to give the game a try. You may need to download LOVE first, though.
