So this is just going to be a small little post about the mechanics and how they will be taking a modern look at retro games.


So if any of you are retro fans I'm sure you have played an arcade game called "Asteroids."

In that game you moved and shot in a very unique way for games of both that time era and now, you would turn with left and right (Pretty basic turning) but could only move forwards by propelling yourself super fast with the joystick.


Now you may be thinking "Sounds like grand theft auto. I want to play!" and if you are you should be ASHAMED of yourself! it is nothing like that.


Now back to my games mechanics, it will be the exact same except for the fact that you can move backwards. This will allow for optimal controls. Also you can (If using a joystick) decide how fast you move forwards and back.


For controls... well here they are:


W = forward

A = left

S = back

D = right

Click = shoot
