Had quite a few attempts at this, tried various key re-mappings with BeebEm but just can't get a good setup with keyboard layout without the shift key going berserk.

Nice looking game with good animation and sound.

Probably my only submission for this one unless I can get a real beeb out of storage :(

Score: 1025

I'm just using the default keys on Beeb-Em and I'm getting used to them. By the end of the 2 weeks you should be fluent in the keys if you try to use them from the start.

I was never any good at Asteroids... :/

Not played this before, but here's my first entry for the score table... (could be my last too!)

OK, final one for the night..... very tricky game, a lot of possible strategies to employ and it's most well written. There don't appear to be any bugs in this one. it seems to be superior..... pun intended..... 3160....

Ach. First time I've been able to look in on this season's competition owing to wedding, house move, etc etc., and it's a game I'd definitely need to play on a real Beeb given I've neither the means nor the brains to re-map the existing keys on my PC. Trip to Big Yellow Storage to rescue old faithful some time in the next few days, I think...

OK That's more like it! 3100...

I can't get the hang of the "Cosmic Camouflage" ... OK I get that the baddies can't home in on you, which is a good thing, but rendering yourself invisible makes it pretty hard to avoid a collision!

I don't get either cosmic camouflage or space warp. You're just as likely to jump into something as not with that and camouflage, as you said, you're most likely just to get hit and lose a life anyway. As far as I'm concerned, the only useful tool here is the radiation that kills off baddies at an appropriate time.

Have managed to bump it up a bit. This is the 2nd time I've gotten to low gravity. I don't see getting much past this is getting past it at all. 3555

Marginal improvement, I'm finding the game a little frustrating.

Indeed it is Jools, indeed it is.

I've been trying for a while to break 4k and it doesn't seem possible.

Right, all set up on a real Beeb again!

3,815. I think this is absolutely miles below what I could do a quarter of a century ago, but it gets me on the scoreboard for this season at least...

I couldn't resist! A few more goes since the above, and summoned up this marked improvement - 5,225. I think I've remembered what my strategy was to progress with this one now.
