I found? this little gem. Its free and available for PC. Android blah blah blah. All I care about is PC.

I'm a little addicted to it. It's kinda maddening.

The backgrounds need sprucing up. A starfield of some sort most definitely. I think the rolling Earth could also use some sprucing. For a PC it should at least look as good as the Earth in Tursi's small demo game.

That rolling Earth is so beautiful to watch in that demo IMO I would expect no less from a PC game with an Earth in it.

Wow whoops! A couple misunderstandings I had. I thought I had to not let these meteors pass by or it would hurt. The only way I realize it hurts is by not refueling my ships energy.
And I've actually been grabbing the Kinetic absorption bombs intentionally thinking that's an ok thing to do lol.

This game is a little more addictive now that I know how to play it better.

I guess that's an old version of the game. It gets kind of addictive. You start developing strategiies on how to smash the rocks together. Should I let them sit at the bottom or wack them like baseballs into the oncoming rush of other asteroids. Its quick and IMO kinda addictive.

I dunno. Maybe at least give it a try. It's free.

The game play is simple. Deflect the asteroids with the red and blue cores to keep your energy up. Blue are worth more energy points than red. Smash them together to get points but not energy. Except for smashing blue ones causes them to rain debris which you can collect to give you even more energy. AVOID EVERYTHING ELSE. It either drains your energy or destroys you immediately.

The art direction needs to evolve a little. Need something in the background. Stars, comets. Something. The Earth in the background needs sprucing up.

Almost 8k this time. 2nd highest. Perhaps from time to time there should be an asteroids style UFO that flies by firing random shots that destroy anything they hit. Asteroids, energy drainers, players ship etc. Hitting it first with a deflected asteroid worth big points. Perhaps hitting it with a blue asteroid causes BIG energy boosts to fall.

Am just gonna leave this here...
