Do you remember the old Atari arcade game Asteroids? Well, this isn't it... but it is similar. Whenever I build a new game engine or start working with a new technology for building games, one of the first games I put together to get my bearings is an Asteroids clone. It's a pretty simple game with a classic design, and it can be done quickly, so while developing the new game engine I'm using for gamemug.com, I put together this little asteroid shooter with a classic 16 bit look.
The controls are pretty simple and follow the classic game's control scheme.
- Up Arrow Key - Accelerate
- Left Arrow Key - Turn Left
- Right Arrow Key - Turn Right
- Down Arrow Key - Teleport
- Space Bar - Shoot

This is my take on the classic Atari arcade game Asteroids. Point your ship at the asteroids and shoot, but don't run into those giant space rocks.
Spades Card Game
Spades is a classic trick taking card game. Played in pairs, bid the number of tricks you believe you can take after you see your hand. Spades is always trump.
This is my version of the classic Taito arcade game Space Invaders. It has more of an 8 bit feel than the original Space Invaders, which was black and white.
Mahjong is a classic matching puzzle game. You can select tiles that are unblocked to either the left or the right of the tile. Select 2 of the same tiles to remove them from play.
Gaps Solitaire is my personal favorite solitaire card game. Your goal is to put all the cards in order by suit in four rows by moving cards into the gaps.
