fysxasteroids

July 26, 2011

fysxasteroids, or “Asteroids” is the first complete game I wrote. The mechanics follow that of the original 80’s game, however with better graphics. Also it runs on a more recent computers. The game features 22 mind-blowing levels, funky music, awesome retro sounds, an online-highscore, an easy to use level editor and runs on Windows and Linux (both 32- and 64-bit). I used C++ together with some nice portable libraries, such as libSDL, libPNG, OpenGL, boost, SDL_mixer, OGLFT. As a build system I use CMake to generate Makefiles for Linux and the project files for Microsoft Visual Express C++ 2008.
