A game I made to practice multitasking August 7, 2015, 12:52 am
Try to control 2 spaceships at once! You have no weapons, just avoid the asteroids and survive as long as you can. Don't crash the spaceships together.


It's a Flash swf file, programmed in Action Script 2 (I think). It's only 7.9 kB big. Please don't fear it (or do, if you want).

I made this game from scratch in a few hours. I designed it specifically to be playable by 1 player (left hand on WASD, right hand on IJKL), but things might get easier when you get 2 people to control 1 spaceship each. The number of asteroids on screen gradually increases, but it increases slower and slower.

My personal record is surviving for 51 seconds - and that was before I slowed down the increase of asteroid count - but admittedly, after practicing for several hours.

I made the game just for myself, but do you have any idea what should I do with it if I wanted to share it properly? I have no experience with that. I'm not even specially eager about doing it.

I've just suddenly found out that I got a custom title - which I had to Google to find out what the phrase means, actually. Not sure if I got it because I'm predictable or because I post in a lot of threads, not sure if I should feel honored or not really. Still better than the upcoming Forum Spammer title would be, so thx to whoever did it.
