In Astropocalypse you take control of a hotshot meteor bent on destroying the galaxy.

Use your directional pad to steer your meteor buddy and ram it into nearby planets in the current solar system.

Press the Z button to boost forward quicker at the expense of using more energy.

Each destroyed planet gives you back energy useful to prolong your path of destruction.

Use your radar to track planet orbits, but also pay attention to the red curves in the arena, follow them to find orbiting planets.

Additionally, ram into the sun at the center of the solar-system to gain back energy and keep wrecking those helpless planets.

Once all planets are destroyed, it's time to go for the finishing blow... destroy the sun!

Pay close attention to your energy levels at all times, once it's depleted it's... GAME OVER MAN!

This game was made for the AGBIC JAM 2021 and was inspired by an awesome famicase created by @SkinnyShips.

Note: There's still quite a few features and tunings I want to do with this game.  Stay tuned.
